Jake Busey Confirms A Live-Action ‘Starship Troopers’ TV Series Has Been Discussed

Could a Starship Troopers TV series be on the way?

During a recent interview with HN Entertainment, actor Jake Busey opened up about the possibility of a Starship Troopers TV series, that he and co-star Casper Van Dien are both on board, and that they’ve spoken with Starship Troopers screenwriter Ed Neumeier about the potential reboot.

So I think Casper and I would be older men in the battle, in the war room, in the planning room or at the helm of a destroyer but not necessarily boots on the ground. We’re old guys now if you’re 45 years old you’re not going to be running around doing the boot camp thing. But yeah, a TV series would be great”.

For those less familiar with director Paul Verhoeven‘s 1997 sci-fi movie Starship Troopers, here’s a quick synopsis of the cult classic, followed by the original trailer.

In the distant future, the Earth is at war with a race of giant alien insects. Little is known about the Bugs except that they are intent on the eradication of all human life. But there was a time before the war… A Mobile Infantry travels to distant alien planets to take the war to the Bugs. They are a ruthless enemy with only one mission: Survival of their species no matter what the cost…
