New “Starship Troopers” Movie Coming

A fourth Starship Troopers movie will make its way to home-theater early next year.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions is behind Starship Troopers: Invasion, a CGI-animated feature that continues the story of the universe began in the 1997 Paul Verhoeven sci-fi movie.

Invasion has two of the original’s involved as executive producers: writer Edward Neumeier and actor Casper Van Dien. Manga veteran Shinji Aramaki, who helmed Appleseed and Appleseed Ex-Machina is directing the project, which is now in production. The movie will likely get a theatrical release next year in Japan, where the franchise is popular. In the U.S., the movie may hit some festivals before going to DVD/Blu-ray.

The new story centers on Carl Jenkins, the intelligence officer originated by Neil Patrick Harris in the 1997 movie, going missing while on a clandestine mission with alien bug-fighting soldiers tasked with a rescue mission that has sinister consequences.
