Battlestar Galactica Hitting the Big Screen!!!

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Bryan Singer (Valkyrie) is taking the wheel with a big screen adaptation of the 1978 TV series. He’s as giddy as a schoolboy, as is his screenwriter, John Orloff (A Mighty Heart).

“I would pass on the job rather than frak it up,” Orloff is reported to say, indicating his love for the franchise.

Singer has wanted to direct this film for at least a decade, especially now that his Excalibur remake is no longer in the works (see, now THAT piece of unoriginality could have been a great film.) It could still be awhile before Battlestar goes into production, since it’s Singer’s style to wait until everything is ready. With Orloff’s writing talent, however, it shouldn’t be a horrific wait.

Singer is currently directing Jack the Giant Killer for New Line. I’m excited.

Movie Quotes

Pulp Fiction (1994)
[Jules, Vincent and Jimmie are drinking coffee in Jimmie's kitchen]
Jules Winnfield:
Mmmm! Goddamn, Jimmie! This is some serious gourmet shit! Usually, me and Vince would be happy with some freeze-dried Taster's Choice right, but he springs this serious GOURMET shit on us! What flavor is this?
Jimmie:
Knock it off, Julie.
Jules Winnfield:
[pause] What?
Jimmie:
I don't need you to tell me how fucking good my coffee is, okay? I'm the one who buys it. I know how good it is. When Bonnie goes shopping she buys SHIT. I buy the gourmet expensive stuff because when I drink it I want to taste it. But you know what's on my mind right now? It AIN'T the coffee in my kitchen, it's the dead nigger in my garage.
Jules Winnfield:
Oh, Jimmie, don't even worry about that...
Jimmie:
No, No, No, No, let me ask you a question. When you came pulling in here, did you notice a sign out in front of my house that said Dead Nigger Storage?
Jules Winnfield:
Jimmie, you know I ain't seen no...
Jimmie:
Did you notice a sign out in front of my house that said Dead Nigger Storage?
Jules Winnfield:
[pause] No. I didn't.
Jimmie:
You know WHY you didn't see that sign?
Jules Winnfield:
Why?
Jimmie:
'Cause it ain't there, 'cause storing dead niggers ain't my fucking business, that's why!
