I Say Again...When Is Bryan Singer Going To "Bail Out" On This Project?
Bryan Singer states in the above article that he has wanted to make a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film for the past decade. Was that during the time he "bailed out" on the "Battlestar Galactica" feature film in production in 2001, or the time he "bailed out" on the "Battlestar Galactica" feature film intended to be in production starting in 2009? He had two opportunities in the decade of the 2000s to make his dream come true, but he "bailed out" on both opportunities. Whose fault is it that a decade later, Bryan Singer's dreams for himself haven't come true yet? Hint: All he has to do is look in the mirror. When is this man going to begin taking responsibility for his own actions when his "dreams" don't come true?
It states in the article that Bryan Singer doesn't want to do "Battlestar Galactica" as a feature film unless the conditions are "just right." I suspect that the "conditions" Bryan Singer is looking for, is not having to direct the damn thing while still drawing a director's salary. He doesn't want to work...but he does want to get paid.
He wants to have a "Thingamajig Consultant" credit on the damn thing, while sitting at home and watching the "View" with Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg...while drawing a director's salary for not directing "Battlestar Galactica - The Feature Film." Yes, I think that is what would be "just right" for Bryan Singer.
We also have the issue as to why Bryan Singer is still attached to this damn project. There are other directors who can direct this thing (and not chronically bail out on the project.) Singer has a bad reputation of "bailing out" on projects. It's ludicrous that Singer is still on board this thing. He is a deadbeat director.
Universal Studios could have assigned a scriptwriter to this thing long before now. Such as..."Oh, I don't know"...say three years ago when they initially announced this project in February 2009? That's a good example of the old fashioned notions of expediency...punctuality...emotional maturity in business. Notions totally foreign and extra-terrestrial to Universal Studios executives. To this very day, Universal Studios remains a stenching cess-pool of emotional immaturity and catastrophic business practices of the most embarrassing order. Comcast would be wise to begin taking the trash out of Universal Studios beginning right now. Trash that has been rotting at Universal Studios since the summer of 1979.
