New “Battlestar Galactica” film eyed

Adding another layer to the “this has all happened before and will happen again” phrase from the current “Battlestar Galactica” series: Word comes from The Hollywood Reporter that Universal has entered into negotiations with Glen A. Larson to write and produce a motion-picture version of the “Battlestar Galactica” property.

The new film version would have no connection to the Sci Fi television series, which is nearing an end.  It would feature characters like Adama, Starbuck and Baltar, according to the Hollywood Reporter, but would be a new version.

Of course, “Battlestar Galactica” has had false starts, before, as well: Bryan Singer’s version very nearly made it to television in 2001, as I wrote about here.
