quote - "Battlestar Galactica may soon be giving up its long-running competition with LOST for television series with the least satisfying ending, as statements made at the BSG panel today seem to indicate that Blood and Chrome is still being considered as a new series on SyFy, and Bryan Singer's movie is back on track. Syfy had supposedly killed the series a few months ago, and the movie project has been in limbo since screenwriter John Orloff was hired last October. If Richard Hatch and Jane Espensen are to believed, however, both projects are still happening, leading fans of the show to believe that perhaps there is a God after all... and really, wasn't that the message the show's finale wanted us to understand in the first place?" - unquote
And Bryan Singer didn't help matters any by announcing three simultaneous film projects ("The Munsters", "Star Trek", and "The Six Billion Dollar Man") he intended to direct a mere month after he had announced the "Galactica" movie on October 21st, 2011. Wasn't he supposed to be working on "Battlestar Galactica" beginning in October 2011?...And not announcing other film projects? Bryan Singer's personal definition of "giving the Battlestar movie his undivided attention" (which is a quote from him by the way) was to abandon it and get "The Munsters", "Star Trek", and "The Six Billion Dollar Man" up and running instead....a month after October 21st, 2011.
Bryan Singer abandoned the "Battlestar Galactica" movie one month after announcing it. And now he's back into it? We're supposed to believe that?
Without a doubt, Bryan Singer is the most irresponsible film director in the history of Hollywood. If he were to finish (or even begin no less) a fraction of the movies he keeps announcing, it would be a miracle from God. So quite logically (rolling my eyes), Universal Studios keeps picking him to direct a "Battlestar Galactica" movie that he has now officially (thanks to the above press release)...abandoned three consecutive times. In 2011...in 2009.....and 2001.
You mean...it has never occurred to Universal Studios to maybe hire on another film director to tackle this film? Any film director other than Bryan Singer who would have gotten this film into theaters ages ago? Ohhh...that's right!! A good chunk of the procrastination problem this film project keeps experiencing...is Universal Studios itself....in addition to Bryan Singer.
If Bryan Singer is lucky (at the rate he is going)...he just might get his "Jack The Giant Killer" movie out of post-production...sometime during the next 15 years.
