In case you have spent the last five years hoping for a “Battlestar Galactica” movie to pick up where the story left off, well, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that Battlestar Galactica: The Movie is moving forward. The bad news is that according to Variety, the film will be “a complete reimagining of the story.”
Don’t fret too much though as the original series’ creator Glen A. Larson is on-board to produce the new Battlestar film. Ronald D. Moore, the name behind the 2003 series on Syfy, is not currently attached to the film.
Transcendence writer Jack Paglen will pen the screenplay, with Universal’s EVP of production Scott Bernstein and director of development Jay Polidoro overseeing the project for the studio.
Currently there is very little news about the project other than it is happening. A projected release date has not been announced.
