All this has happened before, and all this will happen again. The Tracking Board reports Michael De Luca will join Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark to produce Universal’s Battlestar Galactica feature film. Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica was cancelled by Syfy after one season. ABC cancelled the 1970s original Battlestar Galactica series that spawned it all, also after one season.
Reportedly, Universal has been looking to make a Battlestar Galactica film since the late 1990s, but hit pause, when Syfy’s 2003 mini-series and 2005 Battlestar Galactica TV series went forward. Movie talk bubbled up again in 2009. According to The Tracking Board, the feature version is expected to be more in line with the late Glen Larson’s original 1978 series. In 2014, prior to his passing, Variety reported Larson would be involved with the film.
