Writer Jay Basu Added to ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Film

Posted by December 18, 2018 Comment

Sounds like someone is spinning up their FTLs on that much maligned Battlestar Galactica feature film, as a new writer has been added to the project.

The Girl In The Spider’s Web scribe Jay Basu has reportedly been tapped to write a new version of the script for the film, taking over the position from Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy. Sounds like Francis Lawrence (Hunger Games) is still on board as director.

Last we heard back in February, things were still moving right along at Universal with Lawrence’s direction and Joy’s script, but obviously that’s changed now, at least on the writing front.

This announcement comes on the heels of the 15th anniversary of Ronald D. Moore‘s reimagined Battlestar Galactica series for NBC/SYFY, which of course has brought the incredible series back into the limelight.

We’ll let you know when we hear anything else about the project.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.



Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 



Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 



Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
