Starship Troopers Remake

quote:
Vulture has the news, saying that Thor and X-Men: First Class screenwriters Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz have come on board to write the script. The duo also worked on episodes of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Fringe."

From what my friend tells me, the original source material for Starship Troopers is quite a bit different from the movie, and quite good. I actually kind of enjoy the film.. it's fun and satirical, but I think Paul Verhoven in general is mediocre at best. So hopefully this will be more of a re-envisioning rather than a remake of Verhoven's film.

i enjoyed the movie he made even if its "loosly" based on it from what i hear.

The book's tone is different. It makes a sincere case for fascism as a stable government!

I'm okay with a re-imagining remake, but if they try for the same kind of movie as the '97 film, it will blow by default. No one can replace Casper Van Dien.

I enjoyed the 97 version, the only thing i found totally stupid were the asteroids with the bug stuff in it, flying ALL the way across the galaxy to hit earth. the bugs must be a very good shot and the asteroids must be traveling at a hell of a rate. that was just stupid.

What I found unbelievable was that Brenda Strong's character came back to life as someone else.

Well you know plenty of people have established the sequels are terrible.

Blasphemy. The second movie is better than the first because there are more titties. The third movie is better still because there's a not-so-subtle overtone of religious commentary. With titties.

We can't forget the first film was a major box office disappointment in 1997 - no matter how much better it's reputation has gotten over time - and the sequels all went direct to DVD. No surprise they want to try again as a franchise. Too bad much of it's tech was borrowed & used by James Cameron for Avatar.

Symbolic of "fu#king over the enemy," I'm sure. Actually, I guess at that point it's literal.. heh.

Not to mention casually incapacitating a soldier bug with a rifle for a home audience. He also played a serious weirdo in L&O Criminal Intent and was very convincing too.

I don't honestly think you can beat or improve what the first movie did, it was large scale in terms of the story, but told in a very compact and satisfying way. It had a cast with great chemistry and didn't pull its punches which is what you'd expect with Verhoeven. Its just a shame he never got to expand on the characters with proper backing like the first, because the ending certainly alluded to more possible adventures.

I'm not familiar with the second film that was made but the third was completely awful; I tried to give it time but it was too much torture.

The Third Movie loved to execute people for some reason.

The 2nd movie was directed by Phil tippet, the puppet maker on star wars. Just goes to show if you are a fx person it does not mean you will be a good director just like the brothers Strauss (avp requiem and skyline)

Oddly enough I actually kind of liked the 2nd film. It was unoriginal, yes, but I thought it was entertaining. But yeah, the brothers Strauss, they suck beyond belief.. they really should not be allowed to direct.
