Starship Troopers Might Use Some More Bug Spray; 3rd Sequel Planned

According to Moviehole.net, a third Starship Troopers movie is being planned. Ed Neumeier will be writing and directing the third chapter. Neumeier has never directed a movie, but his writing credentials include the first two Starship Troopers films, Robocop and Anacondas 2. Casper Van Dien is rumored to return and wear the uniform of Colonel John Rico yet again. I guess we can expect new bugs, more satire, and a new weapon from the Federation!
The first Starship Troopers was released in 1997 and earned a splattering $121 million worldwide. The second film, Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation, was released straight to DVD and made on a strict $7 million budget. This was dramatically lower than the $95 million budget the first film had. Starship Troopers 2 received horrible reviews among fans of the first film and was generally a disastrous release. It will be interesting to see if Sony has bigger plans for the third installment. I only hope that they recover from the second one and give this latest installment a bigger budget and maybe a theatrical release, even though very unlikely. But we can dream…
