Ehmm so considering they have the storyline, and they have the script?
Now they gonna search for locations? If Ridley is involved, if another producer will do it nehhh no location searching.
They want Fassbender and Rapace again? are they available or do they have other work? or will they use cheaper actors?
how long will it take to film? how long will the editing take and the new costumes and cgi etc etc? will there be new actors? casting?
If they started just now they will have at the most 22 months till cinema release.
Im not very familiar with movie making but im getting a feeling its gonna be a Starship Troopers 2 Hero of the Federation,
not saying it was a bad movie but it was Starship Troopers 2
