Topic: Bryan Singer's Battlestar Galactica Movie?!?

Seems so. It's interesting, but not good news. Some excerpts:

I assume Drew got this directly out of the mouth of Singer's "X-Men" producer Tom De Santo, who tirelessly pimped a Singer-De Santo revival of "Galactica" before Ron Moore took over the franchise, and seemed to begin again pimping a De Santo-led "Galactica" revival at last month's Comic-Con.

AICN wrote:

We've just spent four years watching Ronald D. Moore's "Galactica" undertake its very cinematic search for Earth.

Could even the staunchest fans of the franchise be anxious already to see the Galactica crew begin that search anew?

By all accounts, any new feature would take place outside the alien-free "Galactica" universe created by Moore, and be based instead on the original 1978 Glen Larson series.

I can't imagine Singer or the writers he hires coming up with a viable story angle Moore's gang hasn't recently explored. Moore himself said one of the reasons he decided to end "Galactica" was because the series was running out of ideas.

AICN wrote:

I also wonder, given the relatively low ratings garnered by Moore's excellent TV version, if there are enough core "Galactica" enthusiasts to support a pricey movie franchise at this point. And how would modern fans greet a new Galactica shorn of Laura Roslin, Bill Adama, Kara Thrace and Galen Tyrol?

It was so complete, I think that anything that strayed from Moore's vision would be poorly received.

Aaand Hollywood's smelled blood and won't let this one go: apparently the movie is fast-tracked with Singer set do direct. Oh boy.
