A Battlestar Galactica movie? By Bryan Singer?

Posted on 13 August 2009 by Quaid

UPDATE: Variety has confirmed that Bryan Singer is attached to direct the film.  So much for the “grain of salt” theory.

Let’s take this one with a grain of salt, shall we?  Hitfix is reporting that Bryan Singer is close to closing a deal with Universal to produce a Battlestar Galactica film.  

Battlestar_Galactice_IconWhile no plot or story have yet been worked out, the studio might also be looking to the Singster to direct the film as well.  

While this news might seem to come out of left field, it’s really not too out-there when you consider that Singer was trying to put together a film of the property way back in 2001.  Then 9/11 happened and, well, the movie didn’t materialize.

After that, the property was rebooted as a wildly successful TV show, and now things come full-circle with Singer toying with the idea of taking back the director’s chair.

We’ll keep a close eye on this one for you Battlestar fans.  You think Singer is a good choice for the franchise?

    Many years have passed since NBC killed off the original Galactica and from those years on only the generation of that era kept in the back of our minds that maybe a Battlestar Galactica Movie might one day appear. Then came the word that Mr. Singer with Mr. DeSanto would do a continuation movie and it was killed dashing many hopes of seeing a great show return. To add insult to injury came the re-imagining from Sci-Fi. If anyone could pull off what many of the original core fans want to see, it would be Bryan Singer and a version of Galactica the way it was meant to be. I also think that some of the original actors could be incorporated into some sort of role and what an excellent choice Richard Hatch would be for the role of Commander Adama.

    PS Singer’s version of Superman was an incredible movie and I wished he could have continued the franchise.
