Attention Deficit Disorder is a syndrome encompassing a wide variety of symptoms. One symptom in particular perfectly illustrates how Bryan Singer works as a film director:
-Having difficulty maintaining focus on one task
Now, Bryan Singer announced his plans to direct a "Battlestar Galactica" movie on October 17th, 2011. After that announcement, Singer began to literally stockpile additional projects on his plate diverting his attention away from "Battlestar Galactica."
If this is part of the typical Universal Studios "Master Plan" to endlessly announce "Battlestar Galactica" movies and then never follow through with them, then so be it. However, if it is an indication of something that Bryan Singer may be suffering from, then he and his family have alot to worry about.
Bryan Singer has announced or has become involved with a shitload of projects since his October 17th, 2011 announcement of "exclusively devoting his attention to a Battlestar Galactica movie after Excalibur died." These various projects including:
1. X-Men 4
2. X-Men 5
3. Six Billion Dollar Man
4. The Munsters
5. A web series of some sort
Bryan Singer is not "exclusively devoting his attention to Battlestar Galactica" as he said he was going to do with a full plate like that.
Now, Bryan Singer has a production company of some sort called "Mad Hatter Productions" or something along those lines. Now, is this an actual physical production company along the lines of what Stephen J. Cannell had ("A-Team, Rockford Files, Riptide, Greatest American Hero, Renegade"), or is it just a production company in name only inside of Bryan Singer's head? The reason why I ask is that the only way Bryan Singer could tackle that many projects at one time would be to have an actual physical production company with hundreds of producers, directors, and "Teamsters" working for him to make these simultaneous projects of Bryan Singer come to life.
There is no way all of these projects are going to simultaneously come to life if Bryan Singer doesn't have an actual physical production company. To my knowledge he doesn't have one, because he hasn't been successful enough as a film director to have one.
Which brings us right back to the possibility of "Attention Deficit Disorder."
Bryan Singer throws a bunch of simultaneous projects into a "lottery drum" and spins the "lottery drum" around endlessly. Where the "lottery drum" stops no one knows. If it stops favoring a "Battlestar Galactica" movie, then that will be the focus of Bryan Singer's attention...for 30 seconds. Then he will spin the "lottery drum" again, and it might stop favoring "The Munsters" remake.
Was it "Attention Deficit Disorder" that caused Bryan Singer to immediately focus his attention elsewhere after announcing a "Battlestar Galactica" movie on October 17th, 2011? Was it "Attention Deficit Disorder" that caused Bryan Singer to promise that "Battlestar Galactica" would be the focal point of his attention on October 17th, 2011...only to have him abandon his promise a short time later?
He can't possibly do all of the projects he announced because we all know that he doesn't have an actual "physical production company" as Stephen J. Cannell did. Which means Bryan Singer is going to have to pick and choose out of all of the projects he has announced.
Of course "Battlestar Galactica" will get kicked to the curb. That's just a "given" and it's in Bryan Singer's "psychological DNA" to do so. Both "X-Men" movies will probably get kicked to the curb also.
I predict that "Bryan Singer's main priority from here on in will be "The Munsters" remake. From there, he will go immediately into "The Six Billion Dollar Man" with Leonardo DiCaprio.
As a sidenote, I think that Bryan Singer's remake of "The Munsters" will totally suck ass and fall by the wayside just as all of the other NBC-TV fantasy remakes did:
1. Bionic Woman
2. Knight Rider
"The Munsters" as flesh-eaters?? Yes, that will go over quite well with mass market audiences who affectionately remember the classic comedy series with Fred Gwynne and Yvonne DeCarlo.
If NBC-TV and Bryan Singer are trying to compete with AMC Television's "The Walking Dead", they just title their stupid-ass series...
