WTF? Battlestar Galactica Movie News

Well... if Glen is directly involved as a producer, maybe we'll get back to the reptilian Cylons and costumes resembling the originals more-so than the remake.

For me, this is going to be a "wait-and-see" on which direction it goes.

I also wonder if this news has to do with a certain someone I know suddenly disappearing from FB...

Yes, I just saw this news, too. I found an article here:
http://bostonherald.com/entertainmen...e_at_universal

Mentions Larson as producer and does not mention Singer at all… hmmmm.

yeah, but I think we need to focus on the aspect of what they are calling a complete "reboot." Yikes!!!

Odds are, if it's a complete reboot, it will be nothing like TOS...

Reboot. Not remake. Big difference.

But will it be "developed" and "updated", and all the ususal mong which means it's nothing like the original? All the producer-speak daggit drivel?

My guess is that it's going to be a mix of both Galactica shows. Maybe going back to non-Earth centric things such as names, clothing, etc. but, adding a rougher edge to the story.

Also, I predict that there will be NO Hector and Vector!!

Since Hector and Vector were written just for those 2 actors: I think you are right. We won't be suffering through that again.

Reboot to me means more like Abrams' Trek (Very, very good)
Reimagine could go too many ways to even speculate, only a narrow band of them good, IMHO.

To have Larson named as producer instead of fighting to be legally and fiscally involved could be a better sign than the mess that began in 2002/2003.

Time has passed on the original. IF this is true and they finally decide to do this I would imagine it will be a redo. I cannot see them following the original concepts. But I've been wrong before.

I can handle a redo but what I cannot see again is a total tear down and changing the concept once again. But Hollywood loves to do that. If Larson is truly involved there could be some sorta hope.

I also have my reservations that if they do not change major components this would fail in a theater setting. If your going to do this it should be on tv because you limit yourself so much in trying to produce a 2 hour + movie. Just another mistake by Universal.

Default Re: Battlestar Galactica Movie News

Because of the director (Abrams) associated with the project, and Larson as producer, I am inclined to think that we'll be very pleased with the movie. At this point, everything we say is pure conjecture (of course), but from looking at the past history, using Star Trek:
The Star Trek franchise was rebooted under the direction of Abrams in a very successful way, using the original characters (albeit prior to the original series and suggesting an alternate timeline) and very identifiable visuals such as the costumes, ships, and even actors that bore more than a passing resemblance to the original actors. Even an original actor was used in a "cameo" role (Nimoy).

Because of this, and the fact that Larson is the producer and on record for not liking the Moore series and franchise at all, I think we'll see something in the sorts of how Abrams handled Star Trek but as Battlestar, with similar (and somewhat updated costuming), same characters with possibly different/younger actors that resemble the original actors characters, with the thoughts that a successful movie will reboot the franchise on the big screen the way Star Trek has recently enjoyed. So I think we'll see a MALE Starbuck, Apollo, Adama, Tigh, Baltar, Cassi, and other characters we know and love. It will be "edgier" or "darker" in the same vein as the new STar Trek was darker than the original series (probably PG-13 compared to a PG rating of the original BG series and theatrical film)I also think that if there is a cameo (or better role) for an original cast member, we'll see Dirk Benedict….. (just my 2 cents)

I am very much looking forward to this; best BG news I've had in 16+ years…..

the star trek reboot wasn't bad because it took place in an alternate time line and leonard nimoy [spock] shows up. i just wish the shat could show up. his words to the younger version of himself might be. " don't go on the enterprise B and if you do definitely don't go to veridian III."

There is no producer currently attached to this thing. The one guy that needs to be is in limbo as far as I have heard but IF again he is included there is a chance. Glen has some CRAZY CRAZY ideas and has never let go of the Pegasus storyline.

star wars is managing to get a continuation of where jedi left off. i believe they are going to shoot all three films at one time like they did with the lord of the rings trilogy.

Interesting news (on the all three at once). I know that the following are confirmed:
Mark Hamill - Luke
Harrison Ford - Han
Carrie Fisher - Leia
Peter Mayhew - Chewbacca

Nice that episode 7 will be a continuation set 30-35 years after ROTJ…

Would be nice if the new BG movie was a continuation. Would love to at least see Dirk, Richard, and Terry...

Probably not, but you know, whatever we get will be better than the 2003 reimagination and GINO series….

You hope. It may make the 2003 version look great by comparison.

If it gets made at all. This whole thing does echo of the last 25+ years (the last 11 of which I've been listening to), so I'm not going to be holding my breath.

I am

This is all VERY interesting news.
I have to agree with Dawg on this one. I too have heard so many different stories on how BSG was going to be "continued", "remade", "reimaged", "reboot". I too am not going to hold my breath on this one (not only that but I do not look good in BLUE. I am too tall to be a smurf and too short to be a Navi. I am 6' 6" by the way). I will believe it when I see it.

"Darker".
I would think that having your entire civilization annihilated by the Cylons, and then chased across the universe in a running battle was pretty "dark" already. Not exactly sunshine and buttercups.

In my eyes they have a huge chance to fix the mess that was made in the first place. But this is Universal and they have a very serious negative track record to date. As much as I want to believe I have to agree with Sandy...could be worse than 2003.

I have always said if they cannot do it right do not do it at all!

I disagree. I want them to make it, good or bad.

If it's bad, then once and for all maybe they'll let BSG rest in peace, and we won't have to deal with the headache of "Will they or won't they" anymore.

If it's good, then great. Maybe more good will follow.

But it needs to be put to rest one way or the other. No more teasing.

I never thought of it this way before. What you're saying D, makes a lot of sense.

I'll have to think about it.
