Starship Troopers Reboot Got It’s Writers

STARSHIP TROOPERS Reboot Will Be Less Violent

The Hollywood Reporter released some new news about the upcoming Starship Troopers reboot. Writer Mark Swift and Damian Shannon have been hired to write the script. Shannon and Swift are most well known for writing the 2003 hit Freddy vs. Jason and the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th. Their new movie will be the upcoming reboot of Baywatch which will come next summer.

“For the record, we think Verhoeven’s version is amazing and we aren’t trying to redo it,” the pair wrote on Twitter. “Will talk more about it soon, but we’re excited!”

HR reports that they will be going back to the original basis for the film, the 1959 novel by Robert A. Heinlein.

The original Starship Troopers was released in 1997 and starred Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer, Denise Richards, Jake Busey, Neil Patrick Harris, Clancy Brown, and Michael Ironside as soldiers fighting an alien race of bugs. Though a critical flop and a mild box office success upon release, the film garnered a cult following through the years and even earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Visual Effects, losing out to James Cameron’s Titanic.
