Bryan Singer Boarding Battlestar

August 14, 2009

New Galactica moving forward

Drew McWeeny over at HitFix has broken the news that Bryan Singer is in talks to work on a Battlestar Galactica feature film project. Yes, just months after the end of the superlative TV series we could see the start of a new Battlestar on the big screen, in what Universal calls a 'complete reimagining'.

Singer tried to get a new Battlestar TV series off the ground waaaay back in 2001, but after the September 11 attacks the story of a sneak strike that wipes out a large portion of humanity wasn't exactly an easy sell, and the project died. At least, until Ronald D. Moore picked up the ball in 2003 and ran with it,

Now Universal, which owns the film rights, is trying to bring Battlestar Galactica back to the big screen and has asked Singer to come aboard as producer and director. The creator of the original 1970s show, Glen A. Larson, is already working on the project.

So what do you think? Is it too soon after the ace TV show? Are fans ready for another reinvention of the Galactica story? And most importantly: Starbuck, man or woman?
