I feel like it's getting a bit far off-topic for here, anyway, so I'm
going to let it drop for now.  If he'd wanted to make a movie
completely unrelated to Starship Troopers (which is in no way Fascist;
it's closer to Libertarian), I think he shouldn't have claimed to be
making a movie of Starship Troopers.
