Universal Studios never ceases to amaze and disgust me. Every single time the subject of "Battlestar Galactica" comes up, they always stick with their tried and true dysfunctional little group of nitwits (Ronald D. Moore, Bryan Singer) to try and infuse more life into the property. A group of nit-wits always lacking in legitimacy and respectability in the Science Fiction / Fantasy genre.
Bryan Singer has already bailed out on two "Battlestar Galactica" films in production. The one in production in 2001, and the other one about to start production in 2009. This makes Bryan Singer a desirable candidate to direct Universal Studios latest (and umpteenth attempt) at getting a "Battlestar Galactica" film off the ground? Did I miss something? At what point in Hollywood did it become acceptable to hire the very same film director for the very same film project he bailed out on two times earlier? Does this not reveal a severe flaw in Bryan Singer's work ethic? A flaw so severe he shouldn't be considered for any future stabs at "Battlestar Galactica?" What corporation in their right mind would hire such an idiot for any future endeavors involving "Battlestar Galactica?" Why, none other than Universal Studios where such severe flaws in your work ethic and character are celebrated and worn like a badge of honor.
The latest we know of the usual nonsense we have come to expect from Universal Studios, is that they haven't been working on a "Battlestar Galactica" movie at all for the past three years since their official announcement of such a movie in February 2009. They haven't been doing anything for the (past three years) since Bryan Singer bailed out again on the intended film.
Could Universal Studios have hired another film director three years ago to take the place of the typically unavailable Bryan Singer who always places a "Battlestar Galactica" film dead last on his priorities list? Sure they could have. They could have been interviewing film directors infinitely more desirable in the "personal responsibility department" than Bryan Singer, such as Martin Campbell ("Green Lantern"). But you see, Universal Studios has always had these "weird relationships" going on with losers in Hollywood such as Ronald D. Moore and Bryan Singer. Where apparently the more cerebrally deficient you are in having your finger on the pulse of what mass market audiences want to see, the more desirable you are to helm "Battlestar Galactica" on television and in the movies. So, Universal Studios always falls back on these two losers instead of expressing any sort of initiative in bringing in better quality people to tackle "Battlestar Galactica."
Between Bryan Singer and Ronald D. Moore, the following unfortunate events have happened. All of them man made tragedies at the hands of both of them.
1. "Superman" got trashed in "Superman Returns."
2. "Battlestar Galactica" got trashed in 2001 because Bryan Singer bailed out on the project. 9/11 my ass.
3. "Battlestar Galactica" got trashed again by Bryan Singer in 2009 because he bailed again.
4. "Battlestar Galactica" got trashed by Ronald D. Moore with "GINO", "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome."
"Battlestar Galactica" needs a better quality corporation, and better quality people overseeing it.
