Remake[edit]

In December 2011, film producer Neal H. Moritz announced plans to produce a reboot of the Starship Troopers film franchise.[1] In November 2016, Columbia and Moritz announced the writing team of Mark Swift and Damian Shannon had been signed to pen the screenplay.[2] Verhoeven expressed skepticism at the proposed remake, citing reports that it draws heavily from the original militaristic 1959 novel.[3]
