Starship Troopers remake talk resurfaces

Annapurna Pictures' Megan Ellison, currently working on the Terminator reboot, hints at a new Starship Troopers...

Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures is the company that snapped up the rights to the Terminator franchise a year or two back, and remains involved as director Alan Taylor calls the shots on Terminator: Genesis (if that's still the film's name). Annapurna also has several other big movies to its name, including Foxcatcher and the Seth Rogen co-penned animated movie Sausage Party. Most recently, it released the likes of American Hustle and Her.

A teasing Tweet from Megan Ellison however suggests that the firm may well now be in the Starship Troopers business. "Would you like to know more?", she Tweeted, a phrase which Starship Troopers fans know only too well. And when sent a picture of the film in reply, she responded with a simple "Yes".

Now: there may be a mountain made out of a proverbial molehill here, but when the person backing a major sci-fi reboot suddenly starts Tweeting about another one in such a way? It's hard not to read something into it (especially when it's little secret that a Starship Troopers reboot was in the works a year or two back, only apparently hitting the skids when the new Total Recall underperformed).

We await further details...
