STARSHIP TROOPERS: TRAITOR OF MARS is an upcoming animated film from Sola Digital Arts, Lucent Pictures and Stage 6 Films. Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) 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. Van Dien is joined by original STARSHIP TROOPERS cast member Dina Meyer and new ‘recruit’ DeRay Davis – the film is scheduled for a 2st August release.
