I guess I must be under a rock. I dont recall there being a Starship Troopers 2!
“Looks like – fingers crossed – Sony is moving forward”, Neumeier, who will write & direct the film, tells Moviehole. “Plans are afoot to shoot next year. Casper Van Dien will be back as Colonel John Rico. There’ll be a new bug or two. Also draft riots. Religion makes a comeback. And the Federation has a new weapon.”
As silly as it was, I have to say I liked Starship Troopers. Sure it had NOTHING to do with the book, and it was more a movie about some friends facing their own very different futures than it was an action futuristic war movie.
I don’t really get it. I honestly liked the first movie, and like most movies that they make sequels out of, I dont see why they made more. From the trailers for this movie that I was able to find online Starship Troopers 2 was barely a hair’s width higher quality than a fanfilm. No wonder it was direct to video (hense me not knowing it existed). And none of the original cast is in part 2.
So to see a Starship Troopers 3 is either redemption for part 2, or its just going to be another layer of crap on the feces cake that this sequel appears to be. At least they are bringing back Rico. Maybe we will see Doogie Howser too!
Has anyone seen Starship Troopers 2? Is it as bad as the trailers imply?
