Making Starship Troopers 2 : The Budget

Making Starship Troopers 2 : The Budget
Caffeinated Clint

In what will be the first of a series of conversations with the creators of the forthcoming "Starship Troopers 2", Jon Davison, producer of the film, talked to the site today about the film’s rumoured low budget. "This installment of Starship is being kept low budget for an excellent reason; to provide a comfort level for Sony so that they will hire Phil Tippett as the director. Phil and I have worked together off and on since Dante’s "Piranha". He sculpted the title character, ran the fish factory, executed many of the effects on location and was an all around great guy. Over the years we’ve tried to work together as a producer/director team but I’ve never been able to make that happen until now. The key was the low budget. Sony is getting a huge bargain on the visual effects in exchange for allowing Phil to helm the film. We will also need lots of help from the talented folks in Phil’s shop to make it happen and be visually exciting. It really has to be a labor of love to pull it off for next to no money.", says Davison.
