On location with the "Troopers"

On location with the "Troopers"

“Starship Troopers 2” is in full swing in California. Ok, so there’s no Casper Van Dien, no Doogie Howser and no Denise “love that ménage-a-trio” Richards – but Phil Tippett [Director] and Jon Davison [Producer] well and truly have their fingers in the pulse. If anything, it could be one of the most watchable straight to video releases of the next twelve months.

Dark Horizons had this set-report:

"It takes place 5 years after the first movie, the opening scenes are of the propaganda commercial stating why you should join the Federation Troopers, lots of scenes of Troopers running and then a scene that is a copy of the Iowa Shima Flag Lifting. Immediately cuts to planet Zulu where the troopers are surrounded on a cliff by bugs and they are blasting away and are told to retreat. Nearly ¾ of the troopers are killed as they retreat towards an abandoned military base. They arrive at the base and get no response from the Federation when they ask for evacuation and pick up, meaning they are stranded there. There is also a subplot that the bugs have engendered a virus that infects some of the troopers and the bugs are trying to get the infection to go all the way up to the heads of the Federation. This virus turns it’s victims into Zombies of sorts"

Davison told me he was off to a zombie test last week – now that does sound captivating.
