Starship Troopers Is Being Rebooted

After devolving into a series of direct-to-video sequels (with a 2012 anime film on the way), Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi action satire Starship Troopers, based on Robert A. Heinlein's 1959 novel, is reportedly getting rebooted at Sony under producer Neal Moritz. Onboard for scripting duties are writing partners Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz, who most recently earned credits on Thor, X-Men: First Class, Fringe, and Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles. (They also wrote Agent Cody Banks. Yep.) There's just one question: Who could possibly fill Casper van Dien's bug-stomping boots? [Vulture]

    Channing Tatum, obviously.
    Also, this movie needs Michael Ironside or gtfo.

  • Elias says:

    Ugh, really? Why can’t they just do something original (yes I’m aware of how unoriginal this complaint is)…this was a fun movie but come on…No NPH, no way I’ll see this. Count me out. Just leave stuff alone, suits!

  • The WInchester says:

    This is the worst idea since they decided to take dinosaurs off that island.

  • casting couch says:

    Oh for chrissakes, this is getting RIDICULOUS.
    Why does Hollywood think I will pay money to see a poor version of a great movie I already own?

    They should make it a sequal, where the bugs struggle for survival as they slave under the telepathic commands of the Great Leader, NPH. A story of lost power, the will to survive and one bug's redemption.
