Johnny Rico returns! Yep, Casper Van Dien is back for STARSHIP TROOPERS 3: MARAUDER, because space is not yet safe and there are more bugs to be messily destroyed (after all, we can ill afford another Klendathu). This time he's armed with new military innovations and the ludicrously prodigious lips of Jolene Blalock.
Their intergalactic battles will be going direct to video, and while it looks intermittently cheesy (which is acceptable on a fraction of the original's budget), MARAUDER at least seems to be aiming for the same spirit as Paul Verhoeven's subversive masterpiece of jingoism and mayhem.
James Cameron supposedly required his actors to read Heinlein's STARSHIP TROOPERS novel before making ALIENS.
