Not much has been heard about the Bryan Singer feature film version of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ since it was announced that the screenplay would be written by John Orloff back in October. Inquiring minds wanted to know about the development of the film and in an interview with IGN, Singer was able to give a little update.
Seeminly reluctant to say much, Singer did reveal that he “had a script that is in revisions right now and it’s very cool.”
The ‘Battlestar Galactica’ film has been in development since 2009 when Universal approached Singer to direct and many have wondered where this film would land in regards to the franchise. Would it follow in the footsteps of the classic 1978-1980 Glen Larson series or continue the storyline started by the 2004-2009 Ronald D. Moore reboot series?
According to Singer, “It will exist, I think, quite well between the Glen Larson and Ron Moore universes, but that’s all I want to say about it.”
So it looks like a ‘Battlestar Galactica’ feature film may be made after all. “It’s evolving quite well, and quite recently,” says Singer. “I’ve been developing this for a while, and certain things came to fruition recently, and I hope to do it.”
Singer has been involved in quite a few projects (‘Mockingbird Lane,’ ‘Jack the Giant Killer,’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’) lately and many BSG fans are closely watching what his take on the franchise will be. With ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome’ relegated to a possible web series, fans are hoping that the feature film will not frak up the mythos of their beloved show.
Having been a fan of both shows, I would like to see a combination of the two. All I ask is that Muffit is left on Caprica! What do you hope to see in the new film?
