The Only Director on Earth Who Could Make a Decent "Battlestar Galactica" Movie

Forget Bryan Singer, who for 10 years (and counting) couldn't even get a "Battlestar Galactica" movie into the pre-production phase. "Battlestar Galactica" needs to move back to its "Birth Roots." Its real "Birth Roots."

"Battlestar Galactica" needs to return to the hands of one of its real fathers (second only to the real father / creator of "Battlestar Galactica" - Leslie Stevens.) "Battlestar Galactica" needs to return to the thoroughly professional and highly capable hands of director Richard A. Colla, who directed and filmed "Saga of a Star World" in the Spring of 1978.

It was Richard A. Colla who filmed and directed "Saga of a Star World" as a personal favor to his friend and mentor at Universal Studios - George Santoros. It was Richard A. Colla who developed the groundbreaking visual look of "Battlestar Galactica" along with John Dykstra, Jean Pierre-Dorleac, and John E. Chilberg II while "Saga of a Star World" was in pre-production. It was Richard A. Colla who completed principal photography for the theatrical-esque "Saga of a Star World" in a mere 45 days.

Return "Battlestar Galactica" to the highly capable and genius hands of Richard A. Colla, who is the only director on Earth who could successfully bring "Battlestar Galactica" into the 21st Century.

Banish Bryan Singer and all of the present day "Black Tower" executives to the soundstage of the "Maury Povich Show", where they all belong. Their combined uselessness would prove most beneficial there. Translation: The lot of them would be out of everyone's way while a "Battlestar Galactica" movie was in production with no more strategically choreographed interruptions coming from either one of them or all of them combined.
