Starship Troopers fans take note, your favorite alien bug-filled sci-fi universe will be getting the anime treatment. According to MovieWeb, Starship Troopers: Invasion is being directed by Shinji Aramaki, best known for the popular Appleseed and Halo Legends anime features.
In Starship Troopers: Invasion, a distant Federation outpost protected by the Starship John A. Warden comes under attack by bugs and the team on Fast Attack Ship Alesia is assigned to help evacuate the survivors and bring military intelligence safely back to Earth. Before the attack ship can rendezvous with the starship, Carl Jenkins, now at the ministry of Paranormal Warfare, takes the starship on a clandestine mission and goes missing in the nebula. The battle-hardened troopers are then charged with a rescue mission that may have much more sinister consequences than they ever could have imagined.
Set to come out next summer, Invasion will be the latest entry in a series that goes back to Robert A. Heinlein’s 1959 novel that was not-so-faithfully adapted into a film in 1997 and followed by a pair of straight-to-video sequels as well as plenty of games, toys and other collectibles. We’ll see how well this new version will stack up when things heat up next year.
