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

Seven Years in Tibet (1997)
Ingrid Harrer:
[in a letter] Dear Heinrich. Please sign the divorce papers and send them to my lawyer. Horst and I intend to be married as soon as the divorce is finalized. As for your letter, yes, your son Rolf Harrer was born while you were climbing the mountain. He is now two years old and calls Horst papa. When he is old enough I'll tell him his real father was lost in the Himalayas. It seems the kindest thing to say since you never wanted the child anyway. Needless to say I have to intentions resolving our differences as you suggested. They were resolved the moment you left Austria. I'm sorry you have been imprisoned in India and hope this dreadful war will soon be over for everyone's sake.
