For me it’s not a Starship Troopers movie unless Casper Van Dien is involved. Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars might be a CGI film, but it covers the golden rule with Van Dien voicing his longtime character Rico.
Dina Meyer also returns to the series to voice Dizzy Flores. Newcomer to the cast is comedian and ‘Starship Troopers super fan’ DeRay Davis. Ed Neumeier, who wrote Starship Troopers and Robocop handles the script so it’s legit.

And for a special touch, Traitor of Mars is getting a one night only theatrical screening on Aug. 21 thanks to Fathom Entertainment.
Here’s the synopsis:
Johnny Rico has just been demoted and sent to a small satellite station on Mars whilst the Federation attacks the bugs’ home planet. While trying to train his new recruits on this remote quiet station, the bugs show up in a surprise attack but the Federation’s Fleet is too far away to help. It’s up to Rico and his Troopers to save the planet and uncover how the bugs made it so close to home.
This premiere event includes a special introduction by Van Dien and Neumeier will kick off the festivities with a special introduction. The premier event also includes behind-the-scenes footage and filmmakers’ interviews.
