Battlestar Galactica Movie Back On At Universal

It’s been in and out of development for years now, but it looks like Universal is finally going to get a big screen outing for the crew of the Battlestar Galactica off the ground and into space to take on those fracking toasters.

Variety reports that the studio has hired Lisa Joy to write the new adaptation, and that they’re also looking to The Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence to helm the project, though he hasn’t signed on just yet.

BSG began as a campy ABC TV series back in 1979, but arguably the more popular incarnation was SyFy’s 2003 reinvention, which put a much darker spin on the premise and garnered huge praise from viewers and critics alike. Though this new movie may utilize many of the same characters, it’s unlikely that it will directly tie-in to that show, which has disappointed quite a few of its devoted fans.
