We Can Ill Afford Another Klendathu, But They’re Remaking Starship Troopers Anyways


?“They” in this case being Fast and the Furious producer Neil Moritz and Thor and X-Men First Class screenwriters Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz. Now before we get into the inevitable argument whether Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 film adaptation was a brilliant satire of Robert Heinlein’s book or an atrocity committed against a science fiction classic, let’s have this argument: will the new movie being a remake of the movie or the book? I can see it going either way, frankly, but I’m guessing the new movie will be closer to the book — and likely include the power armor that Verhoeven omitted — but it’ll sacrifice a bunch of other shit pissing off the book’s fans, but it also won’t be nearly as clever as the Verhoeven movie, pissing off everyone else. Basically, I expect disaster. Anyone disagree? (Via /Film)
