What writer Ron Moore did with the recent Battlestar Galactica series was monumental. Not only did he rejuvenate a series whose previous incarnation was a little too bogged down by 1970’s tech and Star Wars references for its own good, but he somehow managed to craft a science fiction show with huge depth and amazing effects on a shoestring budget and insert it onto the fringes of the mainstream. If you haven’t seen it, find your way over to Netflix and get started.
Now that the series is over though, fans have been looking for their BSG fix and they’re about to get it. Bryan Singer has long been toying with the idea of directing a film using the BSG moniker, and the project is finally getting off its feet. We learned recently that Singer’s Excalibur project is dead, leaving him open to do his BSG film next. And the day after that, we learned that Anonymous writer John Orloff would be at the pen.
Orloff recently spoke with HitFix about the project and alluded to the fact that his movie won’t undo anything that has been done by the Ron Moore series. In fact, he’s hoping the two project can coexist in the same space.
