Post New Starship Troopers theatrical movie announced
From the Hollywood Reporter today (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-v ... rks-943882):

"The studio [Columbia] is not remaking the film but is said to be going back to the original Heinlein novel for an all-new take. No personnel from the 1997 film are involved."

I still don't think there's any way to adapt Starship Troopers successfully, but that's just my opinion...

Well, for me, this can be only good news, at least until the film is released. I was never pleased with the previous take as a reference to the novel. While I tend to agree with your thoughts, I can but hope that it turns out to be more faithful.

I'm not holding out much hope, either.
