The press release (above) from Universal Studios and Bryan Singer on October 21st, 2011.
Bryan Singer and Universal Studios will now go dark information wise (because there will be no further information to share) and quietly reinsert this embryonic movie idea back into "Hollywood Development Hell" mode where it will once again never get made.
We now won't hear from Bryan Singer and Universal Studios again about this movie until the Fall of 2013 when they will both re-announce it as going back into production yet again for a fourth time.
This is the work history of Universal Studios and Bryan Singer with this movie / production going back 11 years:
1. 2001 - FOX TV television pilot (Battlestar Galactica) never got made.
2. 2009 - Battlestar Galactica feature film never got made.
3. 2011 - Battlestar Galactica feature film never got made.
And this is my prediction for the future...
4. Fall 2013 - Bryan Singer and Universal Studios will re-announce this movie as going back into production where it will also...never get made.
Bryan Singer and Universal Studios are now in "Biennial Schedule Mode" with these sham movie announcements of theirs for a "Battlestar Galactica" movie.
In the mean time, Bryan Singer will continue to complete a series of fairly unremarkable projects for the television screen uncluding sitcom pilots and television commercials. Most not worthy of mention (and probably won't be mentioned) on the Internet.
If Bryan Singer and Universal Studios ever do manage to make this movie, it will be a fluke of nature or an act of God.
