I guess Bryan Singer just assumes that everyone is going to forget about his October 17th, 2011 annoucement of directing a new "Battlestar Galactica" feature film the more time passes and the more his career continues to bounce around like a pinball to its ultimate destination: Remake Obscurity.
Since his October 17th, 2011 announcement of wanting to devote his undivided attention to a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film, he has shifted his undivided attention to:
1. The Munsters
2. The Six Billion Dollar Man
3. X-Men 4
4. X-Men 5
Bryan Singer has now shifted his undivided attention once again to "Star Trek" for television.
October 17th, 2011 just isn't one of those dates that anyone is ever going to forget about because October 17th, 2011 was the date Bryan Singer announced his intent to devote his undivided attention to the "Battlestar Galactica" feature film. I would imagine that October 17th, 2011 was a special date in many other ways as well.
Perhaps on October 17th, 2011 there was a special cool front that rolled into Los Angeles with partly sunny skies. Or that on October 17th, 2011 a new flavor ice cream was introduced at "Baskin-Robbins" ice cream.
I wonder if even Steven Spielberg was aware of the special significance the date October 17th, 2011 would eventually hold in Bryan Singer's life while he was sponsoring Bryan Singer's internship in the Director's Guild. That October 17th, 2011 would signify Bryan Singer's sole interest in only directing everyone elses original ideas:
1. Battlestar Galactica
2. Six Million Dollar Man
4. Star Trek
7. The Munsters
That since Mr. Spielberg represented Bryan Singer in the Director's Guild, Bryan Singer's original ideas for movies and television series have been as follows:
That's right. Bryan Singer hasn't had one original idea for a movie or television series since he began directing.
Bryan Singer now wants to direct "Star Trek" for television. Gee, hasn't "Star Trek" already been done to death by:
1. Gene Roddenberry?
2. Rick Berman?
3. J.J. Abrams?
Now, why would Bryan Singer want to do the "Star Trek" gig, when the "gig" isn't even his and the "gig" has already been done to death? Well, it certainly gets him out of the responsibility of following through with the "Battlestar Galactica" feature film he announced on October 17th, 2011...doesn't it? Special date that October 17th, 2011, isn't it?
What could Bryan Singer possibly bring to "Star Trek" that Gene Roddenberry, Rick Berman, and J.J. Abrams haven't already brought to it?
NOT A DAMN THING
