Starship Troopers: Marauder (2007)
I'm one of very few people who not only love the book of Starship Troopers, it's my favourite SF novel, but also loved the movie too, hell I even liked Starship Troopers 2 which was direct to DVD. Anyway now Casper Van Dien is back as Johnny Rico in Starship Troopers: Marauder, and starring with him is everyone's fave busty Vulcan Jolene Blalock, Sub-Commander T'Pol from Star Trek : Enterprise. The new movie is directed by Robocop and Starship Troopers screenwriter Edward Neumeier in his directorial debut. Visual FX are being supervised by Robert and Dennis Skotak who are providing the miniature work, not sure if Phil Tippet's people are involved with doing the CG creatures this time though. Phil Tippet who supervised CGI on the first film directed the $7 million sequel Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation in 1994, the new film has an estimated budget of $20 Million and has been shooting on location in South Africa for a 2008 release, though I assume it's direct to DVD again.
