Sony Pictures has released a trailer for its upcoming sci-fi sequel Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars.

Starship Troopers 1997 by Paul Verhoeven(Robocop 1987, Total Recall 1990, Basic Instinct) live action film has become a cult classic. The subsequent live action sequel, Starship Troopers 2 : Hero of the Federation (2004)and Starship Troopers 3: Marauder(2008) did not fair as well in the box office. In 2012, an animated feature sequel to the original film Starship Troopers: Invasion was released. While Casper Van Dien’s Johnny Rico did not return on the sequel Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation, he did return to reprise his role and served as executive producer in Starship Troopers 3: Marauder and the animated sequel Starship Troopers: Invasion. Casper Van Dien will continue his role in Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars along with another original actor Dina Meyer as the voice of Dizzy Flores. The original script writer Ed Neumeier(Robocop 1987,2014, Robocop 2, Starship Troopers) also returns.
Plot: Rico is demoted and relocated to a satellite station on Mars, while the Federation moves to attack the home planet of the bugs — but Mars just so happens to be the target of a secret bug attack at the same time, and it falls to Rico and a group of new recruits to keep the planet safe while the Federation’s fleet is far out of reach.
