The Starship Troopers remake won’t have much blood or gore in it!?

The Starship Troopers remake won’t have much blood or gore in it!?

So apparently the “Starship Troopers” reboot will be far less violent than Paul Verhoeven’s controversial ’90s incarnation. That’s all well and good, so long as the satirical edge and a cameo by Casper Van Dien (as Johnny Rico) haven’t been expunged from the template too!

Empire spoke to producer Toby Jaffe (“Total Recall”) who confirmed plans for a watered-down version of the bug-busting story.

“The more expensive a film is, the harder it is now to make it that violent. 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.”

Remember the jump suits from Robert Heinlein’s book, though? They’re actually going to be in this movie version! That’s some good news to follow-up with the not-so good, right!?

“Working in a visual-effects 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.”

Jaffe doesn’t sound like he’s a fan of Verhoeven’s film version at all, going so far as to say it was… a joke, almost.

“Verhoeven took [Robert Heinlein’s 1959 novel] from one extreme and made it almost comical, whereas our job is to be a little more faithful to the book, and ground it a little more.”

Jaffe’s latest producing effort, “Total Recall” – it also a remake of a Paul Verhoeven film – is in cinemas in August.
