There has been talk about a big-screen version of Battlestar Galactica for years now and it looks like we might finally see something come of it So Say We All!
Ah but there is a catch.
A full-on reboot, and not in the continuity of Ronald D. Moore’s acclaimed remake of the series, or the original 1970s series that started it all. The new project is said to be a “complete re-imagining” of the sci-fi story about humans on the run from Cylons.
Universal Studios hired Jack Paglen (Transcendence) to pen the screenplay. Palgen is a hot commodity these days, he is even working on the sequel to 2012's Prometheus. Glen Larson, producer for the original series, has even signed on to produce
The studios hiring a heavy hitter like Paglen to pen the script shows a serious commitment by Universal to see this through...but remember we also thought the same thing when Kevin Smith was hired to pen a new Superman man movie in the 90's.
What do you think of a complete re-boot and re-imagining?
