Last week, we told you about reports that director Bryan Singer was looking to resurrect his vision for “Battlestar Galactica” on the big-screen.
Now it’s official. According to Variety, the director has signed on with Universal Pictures to create an all-new “Battlestar Galactica” for the big-screen.
And no, it won’t have anything to do with the recently completed Ron Moore reboot of the series.
According to reports, the new version will follow Singer’s vision for a reboot to the series from the late 90s that was abandoned after the attacks on September 11, 2001. The plot line involving sneak attacks, Universal decided to not pursue the projects in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on New York City and Washington D.C.
Now, eight years later, Universal wants to resurrect the film and put it on the big-screen.
