Just when you thought the remake mill had churned its way through every conceivable property, a news story comes along to remind you that there's still plenty to plunder.
Yup, producer Neal Moritz has decided that Starship Troopers is due a remake, having ordered a script from Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class).
Moritz is also behind the remake of Total Recall, another of Verhoeven's culty sci-fis.
Will Troopers be stripped of its political vitriol and OTT violence by a sanitised remake? It's only guesswork at the moment, but it's safest to presume the worst when it comes to remakes.
There's no word on an intended release date yet.
Is there any conceivable way this could be a good idea? You thoughts please!
