Syfy has never been afraid to tackle some of the more ambitious fare in genre literature, and they've set their sights on another classic. Next up? The network is taking a stab at one of Robert A. Heinlein's most decorated novels.
It's been a while since we've seen anything fun from the upcoming CGI sequel Starship Troopers: Invasion, but with the August release date fast approaching, the studio has released an epic new trailer. The bugs are back!
Based on Robert Heinlein's novel of the same name, the 1997 film Starship Troopers is revered by fans as one of the most cheesily awesome, and wildly violent sci-fi films ever made. With a reboot now in the works, it seems the new version will apparently be missing some of that violent, bug-killing charm. But why?
One of Robert A. Heinlein greatest novels, Have Space Suit, Will Travel—the the author last published specifically for a young audience—is being adapted for the big screen by Harry Kloor, who's written for Star Trek: Voyager and Earth: Final Conflict, Variety reported.
