Another Starship Troopers movie
This is not the reboot of Verhoeven's film. This is more like a spin-off that is half way between that movie and, say, Roughnecks: The Starship Trooper Chronicles
. The movie, titled Starship Troopers: Invasion
, is a CGI animated movie that will have some anime influences (since it's being directed by an anime director) but is produced and written by Americans. It promises to include powered suits. After all, it's animated so why wouldn't it. The IMDb article (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2085930/
) lists a release date of 2012, but the production blog (http://starshiptroopers.tumblr.com/
) sounds like they are still in pre-production.
As someone commented on the ST reboot, it's hard to imagine how this could be worse than the Verhoeven version so it has potential to be better. Based on the drawings in the production blog, I don't care much for the design of the ships or the powered suits, but those probably aren't final, yet. I really don't expect it to be especially true to Heinlein's novel but I'll see it anyway. Maybe it will be fun.
