It’s still not clear if Peter Weller will be reprising the role of Murphy in the upcoming RoboCop Returns from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, but one star from the franchise will be making a return: RoboCop’s suit of armor.

While on Twitter over the weekend, Blomkamp had an informal Q&A session, and the question of the Robocop sequel came up a few times.

First, Blomkamp said that the “script is being written. Going well! Imagine watching Verhoeven do a follow-up film,” which will likely subside some speculation over the upcoming film. But when asked about the original suit, the director was quite definitive in his response.

So, whoever ends up playing Robocop will be doing so from the comfort of his vintage grey armor, as Blomkamp assures the costume will be “1 million% original.”

After first playing RoboCop back in 1987, Weller reprised his role in 1990 for RoboCop 2, but he didn’t close out the trilogy with RoboCop 3. Because Weller was starring in Naked Lunch, Robert John Burke took over the role of RoboCop. Joel Kinnaman starred in the RoboCop reboot back in 2014, which changed up the suit but failed to make much of an impact at the box office. With Blomkamp on board for RoboCop Returns, it’s possible the revival will be more warmly received than the reboot.

While it might not be known who’ll be inside the suit for RoboCop Returns, at the very least they’ll be dressed like Robocop circa 1987.
