STARSHIP TROOPERS Reboot To Be Less Violent According To Producer Toby Jaffe
As you might know, Starship Troopers will get a reboot, and in a recent interview producer Toby Jaffe says that it will be following a less violent path to "reintroduce it in a new way". More deitals after the jump.
Last december, it was revealed that the 1997 Starship Troopers movie would be getting a reboot, with Toby Jaffe (also the producer of the Total Recall reboot) as the producer. Now, in a recent interview with Empire Online, the producer says that the upcoming reboot would be following a less violent direction, stating that nowadays it is harder to make a violent movie when it is too expensive to produce:
"The more expensive a film is, the harder it is now to make it that violent," explains Jaffe, also one of the team behind the Colin Farrell's Total Recall. "With Recall in particular, we made a conscious choice to keep it tonally closer to something like Minority Report. It gives the studio, and us as producers, the opportunity to reintroduce it in a new way."
"Verhoeven made his movie a critique of fascism," says Jaffe, "whereas Heinlein was writing from the perspective of someone who had served in World War II. Y'know, one man's fascism is another man's patriotism..."
"Working in a visual-efects renaissance as we are, we have the ability to do so much more now. We can do the Jump Suits [armoured exoskeletons from Heinlein's novel], for example, which I don't think they could have done before."
Both the release date and the director for the movie have yet to be announced, but we do know that Thor and X-Men: First Class screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward Miller have written the script.
