...this time, it's Starship Troopers:

Written by the authors of the upcoming Baywatch movie (why, another franchise reboot). Double yay!

goodnight

They claim that they are absolutely going to stick to Heinlein's novel, and not Verhoeven's film, which could at least be a (dim) ray of (faint) hope.

That didn't work well for Judge Dread, though, nor for Total Recall.

Why men throw their lives away attacking an armed Witcher... I'll never know. Something wrong with my face?

LOL

Honestly, this is so absurd it should qualify to be an article on the Onion.


Needless to say I'll be passing.

Maybe the studio should get Tyler Perry to direct? It will give the film a distinctive urban flavor.

I've not read it either so I can't judge them. smile


Then again, David Lynch did read Dune before his film was made and it still came out being quite different so even the writers/directors reading the source material is no guarantee.

Yup. It's crazy for me to think that 1997 was fricking 19 years ago.

Let's just say Heinlein's book does not really fit in all that snugly with the currently dominant Hollywood worldview. wink

There was a reason why Verhoeven gave the story that satirical twist.

I just checked, and Denise Richards is 45 now.

Daaaaamnit! She was soooo hot back then.

And in very typical Hollywood industry fashion, her major film roles dried up after she passed age 35 or so.

Only took 10 years there, or 5 if you consider Spider-Man 3 was 2007.

Or how about:

Captain America Civil War 2016
