X-Men helmsman to fly Battlestar Galactica
Film promises 'complete reimagining' of sci-fi series
X-Men helmsman Bryan Singer will direct and produce a big screen outing of Battlestar Galactica, Variety reports.
The Universal Pictures movie adaptation is described as a "complete reimagining" of the sci-fi series. Singer had already worked on a possible Fox TV sequel to the original 1978 series, but this was canned following the 9/11 attacks because the premise involved "a human civilization on 12 planets decimated from an attack by intelligent robots known as Cylons", Variety explains.
There is a yet no script for the new film, although insiders have stressed the project will "stand separate from the series". ®
