Last month we saw a teaser trailer for Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars, an upcoming animated movie set in the cinematic universe which began with Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 cult classic, Starship Troopers.
Also related to the ’97 original is some of the cast and crew. Both Casper Van Dien as Johnny Rico and Dina Meyer as Dizzy Flores return for Traitor of Mars, and the screenplay was written by Ed Neumeier (RoboCop), who wrote the original and all the sequels, and also directed the third entry, Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. The cast also includes DeRay Davis (21 Jump Street, G.I. Joe: Retaliation).
Now an official trailer has been released online. You can read more about the movie and check out the new trailer below.
Another Starship Troopers movie is on the way, this one being of the computer animated variety. The new movie is titled Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars, and features the voices of two stars of Paul Verhoeven’s original movie, Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer.
A teaser trailer for the movie has been released by Sony Pictures Entertainment, which offers a brief peek at how the movie looks. Click on over to the other side to check it out now.
Back in 2011 it was reported that a reboot of Starship Troopers was in the works from Sony Pictures and producer Neal H. Moritz, with Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz attached.
That attempt at the reboot didn’t work out, but the project is not dead yet. It’s being reported that Moritz now has the movie set up at the Sony-owned Columbia Pictures with a pair of new writers, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, now set to pen the script.
Real Fake History returns with its faux-documentary style to analyze the disastrous attempt to defeat the evil insects of Klendathu, in the totally hilarious and awesome action film Starship Troopers, directed by Paul “Showgirls” Verhoeven in 1997. Starship Troopers is fondly remembered because it fully embraced itself for what it was – a tribute to the B-monster movies of the 50s, with updated 90s special effects. It was totally off-the-wall insane, featuring gigantic alien bugs, thousands of war-crazy space soldiers, gory and graphic violence, and of course co-ed showers! It even has the most B-movie cast in B-movie history featuring Casper Van Dien, Jake Busey, and the great Michael Ironside.
Over the weekend, Megan Ellison sent out a short and simple yet intriguing tweet that has led some to think that she and her Annapurna Pictures might be involved in some kind of Starship Troopers reboot.
