Just stumbled over this, as I am a fan but must admit I was more of a fan of the original series than sci fy version this look's interesting which though was admittedly better than the original but missed something.

The film is being developed by Universal and Glen Larson will direct it, detail's are sketchy but if you are an avid Science Fiction fan it will be one not to miss, if this is not just another rumor set to sink into the waves of forgotten film project's.

variety.com...

This may already be up but I did not find it when I did a quick check, the news is from april so let's hope it is well made if they make it.

Why? Just Why another one?

There are so many good scifi stories to tell, why do we have yet another remake of a remake.

It is just so silly! It as if the big five have lost their brains after being analy probed by secret aliens.

Just so stupid.

They have no idea what scifi is. Will probably be full of naked bodies, human interactive drama and people with mummy problems.

Yes! Got a dload link?

Some remakes are annoying: The Wicker Man w/Nicholas Cage sucked. You can't beat Edward Woodward.

Other stories kept getting retold because they're classics.

BG was an amazing concept that never took off. They never had the funding or the tech to realize it back in the 70s.

Humans Vs the robotz stories will never get old.

They mirror the industrial nightmare.

Sigh, can Hollywood be any more unoriginal? I was disappointed in the look of the Cylons in the remake TV series and I was not keen on the womantaking the place of one of the original characters just to seem hip...

I loved JJ Abrams remake of BG.
I loved Edward James Olmos as Adama.
The whole cast was full of good actors...but...it has been done, and done well, imo. It's time to move on.

The funny thing about Hollyweird is, if they have fans clamoring for a remake of a past series, they can't seem to get it off the ground. Like the Wonder Woman movie they can't seem to get done. But if it's old and tired, they're all over it. They need some fresh minds in the drivers seat, instead of the stale ones running things now.

I used to curl up with my dad when he was home and watch this show on Saturdays. It was my favorite.


If they make this a movie, I'm definitely there!

I honestly do not think it will be made. This project has been bouncing around hollywood for so long. So many directors and writers have been attached to it over the years both pre and post syfy version of BG. So I think this will get shelved again especially since Transcendence did not do good. I could be wrong though.

Some of the remakes are done because the studio has a license and if they don't do something with the IP, they'll lose the rights.

That being said ... why another Battlestar? I love it, but we don't need yet another one.

Maybe try something new or bring a different IP to the screen.

I really liked BSG. Both the 2000 series as the original.
If they intend to suck a little more out of the subject they should IMO start right where caprica ended.
Explore the beginning of the Cylon integration, the uprise, the rebellion all the way to the first Cylon war.
With good ambitious writers you could get a great show I think.

Just make it a show in wich the plot thickens and not a lameass thrillride of 90 to 120 minutes please. I've been missing a good SciFi show for a while now.
