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.
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?
