Starship Troopers Reboot to be Less Violent?

by SuperHeroHype

June 27, 2012

Though it might seem sacrilegious to many to even make a Starship Troopers reboot, this might really get your blood boiling. According to the producer, they are aiming for a less violent take on the story.

In an interview with Empire, Toby Jaffe said: "The more expensive a film is, the harder it is now to make it that violent. With Recall in particular, we made a conscious choice to keep it tonally closer to something like Minority Report. It gives the studio, and us as producers, the opportunity to reintroduce it in a new way."

What is cool, however, is that Jaffe menionts the "jump suits" featured in Robert Heinlein's book: "Working in a visual-efects renaissance as we are, we have the ability to do so much more now. We can do the Jump Suits [armoured exoskeletons from Heinlein's novel], for example, which I don't think they could have done before."

No word on a release date or director but Thor and X-Men: First Class screenwriters Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz have written the script.

What do you think? Does this sound like a mistake or the proper route to go?

Total mistake. There's a reason the original was rated R, and for me at least it's the only way it worked. The acting was cheesy, but at least we had blood and guts.

Why?
The series wasn't broke. Just ignore 2 and 3 and the animated series.

The first one is a Paul Verhoeven and Edward Neumeier classic!

Actually, I kinda liked the animated series.

But I agree, if it doesn't have an R rating, it's not going to be a true Starship Troopers movie.

Is Hollywood SO out of ideas that even mid-level hits need to be rebooted? :roll:
