Are you serious right now!? Starship Troopers is getting rebooted!!

November 4th, 2016 by Marc Comments


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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
