Starship Troopers 3 to be madeLeon
In 1997 moviegoers exhibited mixed reactions to the film adaptation of Robert A.Heinlen's Starship Troopers. Many people loved it, others hated it. In 2004 a direct to video sequel was made which many fans considered to be a failure. Despite the poor reactions/reviews recieved by the second film, it seems that Edward Neumeier(writer of the first two starship troopers films)will be scripting and directing a third film. Productionweekly.com claims that the movie will once again center around the first film's protagonist Johnny Rico, who is now a seasoned General in the Terran Army.
ST3's filmmakers are currently in negotiations with Casper Van Diem to see whether he will reprise his role as Johnny Rico. The film is set to start filming March 2007 in South Africa.
