Another idiotic and popintless reboot for a franchise already ruined by
Moore-Ron's ill-fitting mess. :-(


From ComingSoon.net ...

Jay Basu to write Battlestar Galactica reboot for Universal
-----------------------------------------------------------
Jay Basu (The Girl in the Spider's Web, Charlie's Angels, Labyrinth)
has come on board Universal's Battlestar Galactica reboot to pen the
script for the reimaging of the television series created by Glen
Larson, The Wrap has confirmed. Lisa Joy wrote an earlier draft of
the script.

Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games franchise, Red Sparrow) is
directing the project. Dylan Clark (Oblivion) will produce for his
Dylan Clark productions alongside Michael De Luca Productions
(Social Network). Scott Stuber (Identity Thief) will executive
produce. Jay Polidoro and Lexi Barta will oversee the project for
Universal, with Brian Williams overseeing for Dylan Clark P
roductions. Elishia Holmes will oversee for Michael De Luca
Productions.

Battlestar Galactica began with the 1978 television series, which
chronicled the adventures of space faring vessel centuries in the
future. At the end of a millenia-long conflict with a robotic race
known as the Cylons, the last surviving warship, the Galactica, 
leads a convoy of hundreds of human vessels in search of a mythic
planet called Earth.

The first Battlestar Galactica series was followed by a brief
sequel/spinoff series, Galactica: 1980, two years later. The
franchise is arguably best known today, however, as a rebooted
television version that premiered in 2004. That series, created by
Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, was followed by a short lived
prequel series, Caprica, in 2010 and a webseries, Blood & Chrome,
in 2012. It is believed that the new Battlestar Galactica movie,
which is being produced by Bluegrass Films, will again reboot the
franchise.

The remake was better than the original in every way except one
(unless your favorite food is cheese): It wasn't Battlestar
Galactica.

Those credits do not instill confidence in this.

I was out at the word "reboot". :-\

If these lazy asses can't come up with their own ideas, they shouldn't
be in Hollyweird at all.

Hollywood doesn't like original ideas. They are risky. They might not
sell and there's a risk of being sued if the idea wasn't original
enough. So Hollywood runs the people who do original out of town.

Couldn't we at least get hybrids like "Criminal Minds meets X-Files"?
(There's actually an anthology book series that does that, though it's
closer to "Criminal Minds does Alphas". It's called Shadow Unit, with
Emma Bull and Elizabeth Bear as editors. A special bureau of the FBI,
some of whose members have psi powers, secretly investigates
criminals with psi powers. The series is very clearly structured as
television episodes.)

That would be fine as you really don't want to know how many TV series
and theatrical movies are pitched as "X meets Y with some Z thrown in".

You pitch what you think the studio idiots will buy. (Especially if
you're a no-talent hack, too.)
