Uh-Oh

JoBlo.com: If it exists, it must be rebooted. That's the current mantra in Hollywood, and the reason we now have this bit of news. STARSHIP TROOPERS is now about to get the reboot treatment courtesy of Sony.

Maybe they'll do it right this time.

That's right, Cap' Bob.
I don't approve when filmmakers twist a novelist's intent for their own political purposes.

Modeling Heinlein's Mobile Infantry uniforms on Third Reich German uniforms certainly illustrates the original filmmakers' views clearly.

Similarly it wouldn't be right to make Vonnegut's SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE into a pro-war flag-waver...

Well, losing Jake Busey and his ridiculous plexiglass violin would be a definite plus. On the other hand, they'll have a difficult time finding an adequate replacement for Dina Meyer's naked breasts.

I don't know how her character played out in the book, but I kept hoping for those aliens to kill Denise Richards in that movie. Gods, she was a bad actress!
