Perhaps "Superman Returns" did in Bryan Singer's career worse than we thought, because he has now become a permanent fixture of the "Black Tower Homeless Shelter" just as Ronald D. Moore did. Universal Studios / SyFy Channel is where careers come to die if they haven't done so already.
Bryan Singer now has the sort of free time one comes to expect from all those associated with the "Anti-Galactica Movement" within Universal Studios management. Thank God Universal Studios had Bryan Singer on the premises putzing around here and there, because if they didn't they wouldn't have had a director on hand to assign to their most earth-shattering project to date:
"The Munsters" television pilot
And as we all know from observing the endless buslness eccentricities of the "Universal Studios Black Tower", such frivolous, further adventures of Herman, Lily, Grandpa, Eddie, Marilyn, and "Spot" will always take priority over a "Battlestar Galactica" movie. A "Battlestar Galactica" movie announced by both Universal Studios and Singer on October 17, 2011...now kicked to the curb for Herman and "Spot."
This is a project so important to Universal Studios and Bryan Singer that it would be placed on the fast track to production regardless of the "9/11 Tragedy" from 2001, if they were making "The Munsters" at that time.
Since Bryan Singer is no longer an "A-List Director", he can start worrying about the less important matters of working in the entertainment industry, such as trying to come up with a project (along with Universal Studios) that would compete with the "ABC Family Channel's" periodic "Scooby Doo" movies directed by Brian Levant:
1. Scooby-Doo: The Mystery Begins
2. Scooby-Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster
Singer and Universal Studios just might have come up with a "lump of coal" that will attempt to do just that:
1. The Munsters pilot
These are the sorts of unimportant matters an unsuccessful movie studio (Universal Studios) and a former A-List director that has fallen from grace via "Superman Returns" - (Bryan Singer) concern themselves with.
