Ah, good… we get to report on another reboot of a movie that still holds up pretty well. Admittedly, the rest of the franchise is a bit, well, crap, but still…
The writers of the Baywatch reboot (we see a trend already) Mark Swift and Damian Shannon will be penning the new take of Paul Verhoeven’s biting, smart and gory 1997 sic-fi movie about a planet full of giant bugs at war with, well, us. It was loosely based on Robert A. Heinlein’s novel.
Neal H. Moritz, the producer of the Fast & Furious franchise, is producing with Toby Jaffe. The two previously worked together on the Total Recall reboot. Really?! REALLY?!!
The only thing that sets it aside from most reboots is that this time out apparently it’ll be based on the original novel more faithfully than the ’97 movie.
Even so… we’re growing very tired of these reboots. Very tired.
