STARSHIP TROOPERS Animated Feature Coming in 2012
Sony Pictures is set to release Starship Troopers Invasion in 2012 from the director of Appleseed, Shinji Aramaki.
Here is the synopsis:
In Starship Troopers: Invasion, a distant Federation outpost protected by the Starship John A. Warden comes under attack by bugs and the team on Fast Attack Ship Alesia is assigned to help evacuate the survivors and bring military intelligence safely back to Earth. Before the attack ship can rendezvous with the starship, Carl Jenkins, now at the ministry of Paranormal Warfare, takes the starship on a clandestine mission and goes missing in the nebula. The battle-hardened troopers are then charged with a rescue mission that may have much more sinister consequences than they ever could have imagined.
The project is being produced by Edward Neumeier (the original film). The project also has Casper Van Dien on board as an executive producer, and a screenplay by Flint Dille who’s writing credits include the original Transformers and GI Joe cartoons.
Starship Troopers Invasion is being animated by Sola Digital Arts, Inc. in Japan and is expected for a Summer 2012 release. It is not known if this will be a theatrical release or just a DVD / Blu-ray release.
