another Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Total Recall) movie is getting a remake…via Vulture
Producer Neal H. Moritz who is also developing remakes of Total Recall, Highlander and Escape From New York is also rebooting Starship Troopers which was based on the classic science fiction novel by Robert Heinlein. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz who are credited writers on both Thor and X-Men First Class will pen the remake’s script. I have a feeling Hunger Games and Ender’s Game have a lot to do with this. My personal feeling is that Rupert Sanders (Snow White And The Huntsman) needs to direct this after his amazing ODST trailer and the second attempt to make the Halo film slipped through his fingers as well. Hell Liam Hemsworth could make a decent Johnny Rico and couldn’t be any cheesier than Casper.
