Battlestar Galactica Movie a Go: Screenwriter Hired

by at . Comments

Battlestar Galactica first charmed audiences as a cheesy but fun TV show, then again as a TV show in the 2000s with a fantastic reboot… and now it’s heading to the big screen.

Universal Pictures announced that it has hired screenwriter John Orloff to draft a screenplay for director Bryan Singer (X-Men, Superman Returns).

Movie Fanatic got to know Orloff really well, having an exclusive interview with the screenwriter who has his Anonymous (check out the trailer) coming out soon. Check back with Movie Fanatic next week for the premiere of that exclusive Q&A.

In the meantime, let’s think about this for a minute. Orloff is a fantastic screenwriter, and Singer has had his great moments on screen, so this new Battlestar could be good. When a new Battlestar will get shooting is anyone’s guess as Singer is currently busy filming Jack the Giant Killer.
