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.
I’m still on the fence with Kristen Stewart as Snow White but Rupert Sanders’ Snow White & The Huntsman looks interesting enough.. Along with it’s comparisons to a Lord of The Rings gritty style and tone…
the rest of the cast is stellar which includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Avengers, Red Dawn), Charlize Theron (Prometheus, Fury Road), Sam Claflin (Pirates 4), Noah Huntley, Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Attack The Block), Ray Winstone, Ian McShane (Deadwood), Bob Hoskins (Hook), Toby Jones (Captain America), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes, Jack The Giant Killer) and Steven Graham (Snatch, Boardwalk Empire).
