After enduring five years of Time Magazine and every idiot rambling on about “The Final Five”, fans of the classic Battlestar Galactica may be seeing a ray of hope after all, as word is that after flubbing Superman and with his future on the man in the suit uncertain, Bryan Singer will be doing a Battlestar Galactica movie instead.
This news isn’t completely out of the blue. Singer has a well known fondness for making sequels to classic franchises and had actually put a lot of work into a Battlestar Galactica sequel at one point. And with Hollywood remaking anything and everything, this was practically bound to happen sooner or later. Star Trek’s success over the summer was likely a major priming factor for getting a Battlestar Galactica project moving along, and with Hollywood being what it is, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see more Space Opera reboots on track. Lost in Space is once again the likeliest possibility, even though it was already done once.
Naturally Mooretards are whining that there’s no need for a movie, what with Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica having finished off the story so spectacularly well by having some people turn out to be angels, while the rest give up their technology and die of starvation on a prehistoric earth. But this just puts them in the same position as the classic BSG fans who were pissed about what Ron Moore did to their show. Now it’s the turn of the Mooretard BSG fans to begin shouting, “Get off my lawn.” Something they probably thought they wouldn’t have to do for years and years.
I’ve got to tell you though, the thought of a Battlestar Galactica movie that actually revolves around Cylon robots as the bad guys, instead of a bad soap opera in which a whole bunch of annoying people spend years shrieking at each other, sleeping with each other, committing suicide and then coming out as secret Cylons or angels… is pretty damn refreshing.
