Though CinemaCon was held last week in Las Vegas, a few important quotes from interviews conducted at the confab are only now making their way to light.
Case in point comes a video interview with producer Neal H. Moritz posted at HitFix where the topic of the proposed “Starship Troopers” reboot came up.
At last report, the new take would follow the original Robert A. Heinlein novel closer than Paul Verhoeven’s well regarded 1997 sci-fi feature. What’s surprising in the quote today is that the future for the franchise may no longer be on the big screen. Moritz says:
“We’re developing it. We’ve actually been talking about either doing it as a feature or doing it as a television show. So, we’ll see.”
The original film made just $121 million worldwide on a budget of over $100 million, but has since become a cult classic that spawned two direct-to-DVD sequels and an animated TV series.
