Bryan Singer reboot of Battlestar Galactica due 2013/2014

Bryan Singer has announced that his version of Battlestar Galactica will hit theatres in either 2013 or 2014

this was rumoured shortly after the tv show went off the air and most people did not believe another reboot would happen so quickly

Singer has talked about doing the movie for awhile and he just wrapped up Jack the Giant Killer and while prepping the PR for that movie he was asked what is next--he has hired John Orloff to write the screen play.

It was first announced in 2009 this was to happen--now Singer has moved the movie as his next project and delaying Exalibur to sometime later.

The latest developments happened earlier in the year when Glen A Larson finally broke his silence and admitted he had problems with Moore/eick version--he did not like the amped up sex in the series-Larson is a Mormon and had some of his beliefs intwinded with the original series.

What could be interesting is that there is a new Battlestar Galactica series due in late 2012 called Blood and Chrome that is about the first cylon war

So if Singer follow through with his plans for the movie--it cause some confusion as Singer reportedly will go back to the original series and have the Cylons created by aliens

should be interesting

Brian Singer has lost the plot. I'm glad they took Superman from him.

God no.

I'm still getting over the shock of my favourite childhood tv show being bastardized all to hell.

Is that Spartacus set in the distant future?

Guys like me, whose only frame of reference for BSG being the 2004 series, are going to be really confused if Starbuck is a guy.

I, on the other hand, had huge problems with Starbuck being a woman.

As long as the movie has Colonial Vipers WITH LASERS I'll be somewhat pleased.

Still, Singer needs to reboot X-men after/before this one.

I think it's funny people liked the original horrible series more than the 2004 reboot, though.

It's like comparing GI Joe to The Sopranos.

It wasn't horrible in the late 70s. You're only 25, so you couldn't possibly understand. Yes, it was cancelled after one season, but that had more to do with it being expensive and network executives being stupid. The viewer outrage over the cancellation proved that it had a strong following.

Besides, if the original series were horrible, the 2004 series would've never happened. You can bet that the 2004 series will be deemed in 25 years to be "horrible" by the next generation and you'll be 50 years old and arguing online with kids in their 20s who will be laughing at you for liking the "horrible" 2004 series more than 2034 reboot, trust me

I liked the original series plenty, but is there really a ground swell on HF that had huge problems with the 2004 series? That show was fantastic, re-imagining and plot decisions aside. It's some of the best television that's been on in ages. Does anything not on HBO even stand up over that span?

The original just seemed so cheesy, it fit in with 70's TV. While the latest edition was gritty sci-fi, unlike so many of the present shows. People who usually don't dig sci-fi got into it because it was such a refreshing notion of how good sci-fi can give provide deep insight into human nature. Maybe I never gave the original a chance, but they aren't even on the same level to me.

Honestly, it's like comparing Adam West Batman to Christian Bale Batman.

And I hope they don't do this movie, unless it's taken serious not just as a cash grab.

What? That's a terrible idea. The recent TV show can't be topped.

I own about 500 hours of Television from pre-1970. Box-sets, burnt discs and bootlegs. I've listened to probably every surviving radio play from the late 40's on the popular OTR sites.

I'm a fifth level geek, basically, so I knew what I'm comparing it to. The original Star Trek was more often horrible than good, but it had a point. It was about equality and charm, Galactica was a horrid attempt to profit off a booming space opera trade, and the execution was cheesy, even for 1978.

I was very skeptical of the reboot, but it turned out to legitimately be one of the ten or twenty best runs in dramatic television history IMO. A very smart, well paced character drama.

I can't imagine Singer improving on it. I love The Usual Suspects, but I don't think he's ever been good enough to match the 2004 series in effect.

This and the Buffy reboot need to die horribly, basically.

LAWLZ, Singer is going to make an ass out of him self and so are the movie execs behind this. Plus their going to tarnish the the good name of the '04 series.

Also, $50 says Starbuck is a dude, and that ain't cool.

Bryan Singer's sales pitch is basically "Hey guys remember me? I directed The Usual Suspects!"

Frak off, Starbuck NEEDS to be a dude.

Dirk Benedict>>>Katee Sackhoff

I also liked the voices of the original Cylons. Not a fan of the human forms in the new one.

Except for, you know, the writing of the character and the performance of the actor... the quality of the show and the story and the general over-arcing theme.

This has total disaster written all over it. The re-boot is my favorite TV series of all time and nothing comes close. I just finished watching it from beginning to end for the 2nd time since it was cancelled.

The original series was rubbish and yes I am old enough to remember it because I watched every episode when I was a kid. I even watched the reruns about 6 years ago, it was so bad. The only good thing that came out of it was it allowed the re-boot to be made.

Frak off, no thanks.

When I'm watching my BSG and imagining all the wonderful moments Starbuck and I could have together, I want to make sure that it's Katie Sackhoff I'm imagining, not Dirk Benedict.

You know, instead of "Starbuck", you could fantasize about Katee Sackhoff the actress... Or just download free porn from the internet.

For me, Maren Jensen>>>>Katee Sackhoff.
