Bryan Singer is Still Moving Ahead With "Battlestar Galactica?" Oh, Really? At This Point Does Anyone Even Care Anymore?
Let me direct all of you to an undeniable fact about the would be "Battlestar Galactica" theatrical film that both Bryan Singer and Glen A. Larson were supposed to have been working on since 2009:
Yes, the chronology clearly shows that Glen A. Larson and Bryan Singer have quite frankly, wasted the past three years not doing a damn thing with "Battlestar Galactica." And now apparently, only because the deal with the "Excalibur" movie fell through...Bryan Singer now has a renewed interest in doing a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film? What is this scam? "Battlestar Galactica" only gets made through process of elimination? It only gets made when all of the other scheduled Bryan Singer projects drop like flies and he has enough time on his hands to sit at home 30 odd days a month watching "The View" with Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg?
So now, because both Glen A. Larson and Bryan Singer weren't working on any "Battlestar Galactica" feature film during the past three years...we have to wait yet another two or three years for Larson and Singer to make this stupid movie? And we're supposed to be grateful (??) that it may finally get made now only because the demise of the "Excalibur" movie opened up a window of opportunity for both Larson and Singer to get off of their collective asses and do something?
Of course, this mess is ultimately the responsibility of Universal Studios. What the hell have they been doing for the past three years? Why is it whenever a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film is the topic of discussion, only Bryan Singer's and Glen A. Larson's names are brought up? There are other talented people in Hollywood who could have been making this movie for the past three years. Joss Whedon, JJ Abrams, James Cameron, and even Steven Spielberg if he wanted to betray his friend (George Lucas.) Other people could even have gotten all of the pre-production and prep work done (during the past three years) for this movie until Bryan Singer was ready to come on board for principal photography. Or, if all of the prep work had been done in two years and Singer wasn't avaiable, they could have assigned another director to the project. Why is it the "Law of the Universe" that Bryan Singer is the only director ever considered for this project? Especially when you consider how badly he fucked up "Superman Returns?" Why not give the project to Martin Campbell...director of the "Green Lantern" movie?
So now, because nothing was done in the past three years (compliments and courtesy of Universal Studios), we have a situation where (1) Universal Studios won't have any sort of popcorn movie to compete with JJ Abrams "Star Trek" in the summer of 2012...and (2) The long journey begins where we know damn well that at some point, Bryan Singer's intended "Galactica" movie will fall apart and suffer the same fate as "Excalibur."
(Snapping fingers)...Hey Comcast!! Over here!! I've got another bullshit mess for you to clean up at Universal Studios involving "Battlestar Galactica."
