Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Battlestar-Galactica

Mother-fracker! This is excellent news. “So say we all.” Universal is prepping a big screen adaptation of ‘Battlestar Galactica‘…finally. There have been many attempts to do a big screen version based off of Glen Larson’s 1978 TV series, but none have come to fruition. In 2003, a revamp series aired on SyFy, and became one of the BEST series to ever come out on television.

I just hope that the original cast and crew come back, because it wouldn’t be the same without them. Lisa Joy is set to write the screenplay who recently wrote the script and produced the upcoming series ‘Westworld‘ for HBO, according to Deadline. ¬†Francis Lawrence is signing the final papers to direct as well, which he just directed the last ‘Hunger Games’ movie.

Now, I’m very excited about this, but I want the 2003 show creator Ronald D. Moore to come back and be a part of the his. He knew what he was doing. If Universal does this right, this could be a big franchise project for them, but unfortunately, I’m betting this will be a complete revamp of the show story with a new cast. Still, more ‘Battlestar Galactica’ is good, right?

  1. Which original cast? The ORIGINAL cast or that gawdawful remake that sucked daggit balls?

  2. That shitty remake on the Sci-Fi channel sucked more balls than a $20 whore at a Democrat party retreat.

  3. When they’re pulling it out of their ass and congratulating themselves? Thanks but no:

    “We were in the writers room on the finale of that season … and I literally made it up in the room, I said, ‘What if four of our characters walk from different parts of the ship, end up in a room and say, Oh my God, we’re Cylons? And we leave one for next season.’ … And then we sat and spent a couple of hours talking about who those four would be.” -Showrunner Ronald D. Moore

  4. I enjoyed the mini-series but I very much disliked when the show launched into the full series. I was tired of seeing every war movie cliche being used. They didn’t even bother filing off the serial numbers when they referenced these movies either.

    It got damned silly too when everyone the show practically was a Cylon.

    PS: the CGI of the robotic Cyclons was so bad! The space shots of the ships were fantastic though.
