A few hours ago, Deadline broke the news that Tim Miller has been named director for a film adaptation of Neuromancer currently in development. Tim Miller is possibly best known as director of 2016’s Deadpool.
This is potentially exciting news but some are quick to point out some version of a Neuromancer film has been in development off and on for nearly the past 30 years. It’s also worth noting this project does not yet even have a writer involved, so there isn’t even a script.
Do you think Tim Miller is the correct choice for the job? Do you think the movie will even be made, or is the property cursed? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
Neuromancer is, of course, William Gibson’s 1984 debut novel and is considered by many to be the genre-defining cyberpunk novel. It was the first novel to ever win the Nebula Award, Phillip K. Dick Award, and the Hugo Award.
This trailer (included below) shows much more than the initial teaser, giving us a further look at the animation and hints of the story.
In a Twitter poll conducted after last month’s news, we found more of our followers are fans of the 1997 Starship Troopers film than not. Where do you stand? What did you think of the sequels? Are you looking forward to Traitor of Mars? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
A trailer has just been released for a new Starship Troopers movie, continuing the franchise which began with the movie titled simply Starship Troopers in 1997. Since then, there have been three more movies released in the franchise (two live action like the original and one animated) and an animated series.
The new movie is titled Traitor of Mars and will see Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer return as the voices of the characters they played in the first film, Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores. Also returning for this sequel is Ed Neumeier, who wrote the first film (based, though some would say loosely, on Robert Heinlein’s 1959 novel.)
Release of a film continuing this franchise comes as a surprise to many as there have been rumors of a reboot in the works for some time now.
Traitor of Mars will be in theaters in the US for one night only on August 21st. Check local listings for more details as the date approaches. There is no information yet about home video release.
Will you be seeing this movie in the theater or waiting for later release? What did you think of the other Starship Troopers movies? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
