A new writer will pen Universal’s feature adaptation of the sci-fi franchise ‘Battlestar Galactica’ film. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Simon Kinberg would write the screenplay and also make the film. Also, he has directed the 2021 women-led spy thriller movie ‘The 355.’ Kinberg was the main man behind the X-Men for decades.
Kinberg conveyed his excitement in a statement: “Battlestar Galactica is one of the holy grails in science fiction, and I couldn’t be more excited about bringing something new to the franchise while honoring what’s made it so iconic and enduring.”
He added that he would join Dylan. He is so grateful that Dylan and his partners at Universal have believed him with this tremendous universe.
Formerly, Jay Basu and Lisa Joy were hired to write the film. But recently, Kinberg will make a fresh start, and we can anticipate a completely new edition of the screenplay.
Another X-Men director, Bryan Singer, was involved in directing this movie in 2009, But he has not worked on this project for a long time. Since 2016, Francis Lawrence has almost performed direction duties.
Firstly, it premiered for ABC as a live-action TV series in 1978. Following the series’ acclaimed essential cable reboot in 2000, it was seen as a rip-off of ‘Star Wars’ featuring Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, and Katee Sackhoff.
As per Galactica, both shows discover a chase of a fleet of human stars, as they escape a group of massacred robots called Cylons and attempt to find a mythical planet called Earth. The film has gone through the hands of so many writers who could not produce a good result. But Kinberg’s enthusiasm bodes well for this sci-fi genre.
There is no confirmation of casting and release date yet; maybe we all have to wait a while for this movie to be released. Till then, stay with our site for more updates.
