A trailer promoting the Japanese release of the upcoming Starship Troopers: Invasion film was posted on Friday. The 61-second trailer for the computer-animated adaptation of the 1959 Robert Heinlein novel features English voice acting and Japanese subtitles.
A promotional blog for the film has previously posted starship designs, power suits designed by Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) and Shinji Usui (Metal Wolf Chaos, Chromehounds), and bug designs to be voiced by Baku Owada. Aramaki is directing the new film, which is due out in summer 2012. A trailer for the film was streamed on IGN in March.
Flint Dille is writing the screenplay for the film after working as a story editor on The Transformers and G.I. Joe television series of the 1980s. The staff commissioned illustrator Hidetaka Tenjin (Macross Frontier, Macross Zero, Hellsing Ultimate) to create a teaser poster for the film. Joseph Chou (Appleseed films, Halo Legends, proposed live-action Evangelion) is producing the new project. Edward Neumeier and Casper Van Dien of the live-action Starship Troopers film are executive producers.
