<i>Starship Troopers: Invasion</i> Anime Set for Summer 2012 Release

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.

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.
