A second sequel to Paul Verhoeven’s “Starship Troopers” (1997) is in the works over at Sony, says Cincity2000, via Dark Horizons.
Ed Neumeier will return to the typewriter to punch out the script, which, we guess, will head straight to DVD – just as the first sequel, “Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation” did. According to the site, the film will have even more of a connection to the first film though, with some cast members from the original film returning to the fold for “Troopers 3”.
Casper Van Dien mentioned via his official site that he is involved, reprising his role as Johnny Rico.
Says the actor, “The script is along the same line as the first. It is Awesome”. He adds that Rico would now be a General in the film.
