Bryan Singer Directing Battlestar Galactica Movie
Bryan Singer has been hired by Universal Pictures to produce and direct a big-screen version of "Battlestar Galactica". The film is not expected to have any connection to the recently ended Syfy series from "Star Trek" alum Ronald D. Moore and will instead be a complete re-imagining. Glen Larson, who created the 1978 original series, is also on board as a producer. This is actually Singer’s second crack at the property. He and Tom De Santo had developed a TV sequel to the original series and were just months away from filming the backdoor pilot before the attacks on America on September 11, 2001 happened. The network grew nervous and the project fell apart. A few years later a new project from David Eick and Ron Moore and the rest is history.
