Universal is ramping up a movie version of the sci-fi franchise "Battlestar
Galactica," aiming to develop the film as a complete reimagining of the story.

"Transcendence" writer Jack Paglen has signed on to write the screenplay.
Paglen has also committed to Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" sequel for Fox that
will start production this fall.

Original series creator Glen Larson will produce the "Battlestar Galactica"
film.
....
Universal's exec VP of production Scott Bernstein and director of development
Jay Polidoro are overseeing the latest version of "Battlestar Galactica" for
the studio.
....

Note the phrase "complete reimagining"...

Yep, more unrecognisable crap that is "Battlestar Galactica" in anem
only. Glen Larson should have more brains and integrity, but obviously
he doesn't give a damn about the fans of his proper version and is
simply interested in pocketing more money. :-(
