'Battlestar Galactica' movie: a potentially out of this world project

See also

The popular science fiction television show “Battlestar Galactica” has seen several iterations. 1978 saw the launch of the original series, followed by the 1980 tangential continuation. In 2004 a re-imagined version debuted, and in addition to the various tv runs, there have been spin-off shows, video games, graphic novels, and a slew of other related media.

According to current chatter, a theatrical release may be under development. Variety recently reported that Glen Larson, who created the 1987 version, will produce the forthcoming movie. Universal has allegedly named Jack Paglen as the screenplay writer. “Battlestar Galactica” has achieved enormous success, largely thanks to passionate, devoted fans. It seems the imminent cinematic version will be a fresh retelling rather than a prequel or sequel. This project further exhibits the intersection between television and movies, also evident in the Marvel universe, “Veronica Mars” flick, and the possible “Luther” big-screen adaptation.

Is the possible “Battlestar Galactica” movie the best news you’ve heard this week, or more distressing than the second “X-Files” flick? Leave a comment below or tweet @mitchellclong to join the discussion.
