Hi everyone, Bryan Here….
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?
