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]
"The most chilling ghost story of our time?" you say, new trailer for The Woman in Black? We'll be the judge of that. So far it looks like Harry Potter has gone back in time to trudge worriedly through a haunted house stocked with creepy little girls and jump scares. Can't he just retire these spooks to some old paintings on the wall and be done with them, already? Expecto petr-ho-hum, if you ask me. But take a look for yourself, and stick around for more of your Friday Buzz Break.
