Battlestar Galactica Feature Once Again Moves Forward With Michael De Luca

battlestarsSince 1999, attempts have been made to bring Battlestar Galactica to the big screen. The original 1978 series, created by Glen A. Larson, survived a single season on ABC, but grew a cult following in syndication. The feature was put on hold when the then Sci-Fi Channel developed its four-season re-imagining of the concept.

But the project once again moves forward as The Tracking Board reports producer Michael De Luca has signed on to produce the feature. According to the report, De Luca is a big fan of the original series and the project will take its inspiration from the Lorne Green starring series. Both versions centered on the last of mankind as they ran from a robot empire while searching for a mythical planet called Earth. But unlike the Sci-Fi series, the original was more of a straightforward sci-fi/fantasy in the mold of Star Wars.

Director Bryan Singer has been attached to the project for a decade, but it is unclear if he will ultimately direct the feature.
