It looks as though Universal is set to bring Battlestar Galactica back to the big screen at some stage in the near future, with a reboot said to be in the works. Although it's been just five years since the last run of the TV show ended, the studio is keen to reimagine the franchise, starting with a brand new cinematic adventure.
What approach will be taken remains unseen, although it doesn't look as though the studio is willing to continue along the same lines as the last series, which was a reboot itself, but instead it wants to craft something new within the franchise's universe, and the creator of the original series, Glen Larson, is said to be front-runner on the production side of things, while Jack Paglen has signed up to provide the screenplay according to Variety.
The Battlestar Galactica franchise has a long and storied history dating back to 1978, before a reboot kicked off in 2003 and ran for another six years.
It'll be interesting to see how the studio broaches a new reboot, given the huge success of the last effort, but with Larson looking after things, and Paglen on writing duties, it sure looks promising!
