In case you haven’t been following our Twitter feed you may not have realised that London’s Earl’s Court found itself transformed into the epicentre of all things cult as it hosted the Showmasters annual London Film and Comic Con. Two guests that THN were very excited to meet were none other than Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer, a.k.a Johnny Rico and Dizzy Flores from STARSHIP TROOPERS.
News has recently broken that a remake of Paul Verhoven’s 1997 cult classic is in the works. After the sequel’s failed to capture the magic of the first film, we at THN are a little uncertain how you can make the original any better. We seized the opportunity to ask the stars if they’d be up for a reunion. Here’s what they had to say.
Casper Van Dien: If they asked me I would be more than honoured.
Dina Meyer: Well you know I died… but if they asked me sure.
Everyone loves a cameo and we feel that this would be the remake’s best way forward; get some of the main cast back, but have them in different roles maybe. If he could return in another guise Casper Van Dien said it would probably have to be ‘Rasczak or someone like that’.
So there you have it folks, should the remake go ahead everyone’s favourite bug-fighting duo are up for another whirl.
