Remember the classic 1978 TV series, Battlestar Galactica? It also had a rebooted series in 2004? Well there’s now a movie in the works. The sad news it that this movie will have no ties to the rather impressive ’04 series that starred Edward James Olmos, Jamie Bamber, Mary McDonnell and Katee Sackhoff.
This latest incarnation of the Battlestar Galactica mythos in apparently already in the early stages of pre-production. Glen A. Larson, who created the 1978 TV series, is on board as a producer, whilst Transcendence‘s Jack Paglen is working on the screenplay.
Despite having no ties to any previous incarnation of Battlestar Galactica, this movie will follow a similar premise. Basically, expect to see Cylons hunting down the last remaining members of the human race throughout space.
Expect more on this as it develops.
