    yes, but who? you''ll need someone who can look 25 as well as 45...

    ..i thought Starship Troopers was **** funny, but then again, i knew beforehand to seperate the book from the movie, ( especially when you consider it was Paul Verhoven making it...) , but Ridley Scott could really make a proper go at getting this right, i say give him a chance...

    here's on it:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forever_War_(comics)

    as for the actor to play the character of 25-ish Lt.Mandella as well as 40-ish col.Mandella you need someone who can look young as well as older - Di Caprio (seems a favourite of Scott recently).

    i remember in early 2000, when I made money from the internet bubble (all lost since) I contact Joe H. and Marvano as well as their agent to see if I could help fund a movie, but then it's not my trade, so I dropped it. I must say that Joe Haldeman is a very nice gentleman.

    Oh, I don't think it would be that bad.
    Besides, the whole point of a movie faithful to the book would be to make you 'think' about what was going on. If all you want is a pure action flick then try 'Shoot em up'.

    Personally, I'd feel a bit ripped off paying $8 for a ticket and $10-20 for snacks to see a 3 hour movie with (at most) 45 minutes of action.

    Agreed! He allowed one of his stories to be made into a movie in the 50's or 60's and was unimpressed. He swore he would never let that happen again, and he didn't.

    Someday, if we're lucky, they may make "Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers".

    That was the first thing that went through my mind when I saw the title of the thread. “They’ll just make it into another starship troopers”.
    (It’s a good thing that Heinlein was dead when they made that movie or it would have killed him)

    Here's an interesting thought. How do you think hollywood is going to handle this one?
    If I remember correctly, at one point the main charector disovers that while he was gone the U.N. adopted an official policy promoting homosexuality as a means of population control. Later, our hero is in charge of a combat unit made of gays and lesbians that think he is a pervert for being STRAGHT!

    The only director that I can think of that would tackle that one head on would be Mel Brooks!

    Who am I going to get to rock me to sleep tonight. My wife just wouldn't understand.
    After seeing ST I came home and sat looking shell-shocked and muttering "I can't believe they did that" until she brought me a beer

    I will remain optimistic until presented with evidence that things are going off the rails.

    Now, everyone chant to give R. Scott some karma - OOOOMMMMM, OOOOMMMM

    This was a great book, and I would think Scott would not fall into the same "I am an artist" black hole the director for ST did.

    Probably will be a good one to see.
