This movie will once again never get made...
Universal Studios isn't like the other movie studios in Hollywood because Universal Studios is not a normal movie studio in a very bad way. Universal Studios is owned and managed by people who are "Conservatively Eccentric" towards all things Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica." Universal Studios does not view both as valuable commodities to be nurtured and cultivated over long periods of time in to vibrant franchises like "Star Wars" and "Star Trek." Instead, Universal Studios views both as quickie...flash in the pan...gimmicks to be exploited spur of the moment...and then immediately discarded.
To Universal Studios...."Battlestar Galactica" was / is nothing but a flash of the pan vehicle for advertising untalented people they always have immediate access to because they are always affordable for immediate hire....Ronald D. Moore....and.....Edward James Olmos. It's never actually about "Battlestar Galactica" itself with Universal Studios because Universal Studios has always hated "Battlestar Galactica." That's the problem. The long term franchise "Battlestar Galactica" is still capable of becoming right behind "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" (as long as Universal Studios didn't own it) is still the sleeping giant it always has been. "Battlestar" requires long term commitment, cultivation, and nurturing to become that decades spanning franchise. Universal has instead....turned the "Battlestar" brand name into nothing but an endless "Narcissistic Photo Op" for Ronald D. Moore. And this nonsense is still going on a decade later
To Universal Studios....Science Fiction is also nothing but a quickie, flash in the pan gimmick to be exploited and then immediately discarded. To Universal Studios, Science Fiction is...."Tom Cruise in a movie with any present Science Fiction elements as a mere afterthought." Science Fiction is...."Johnny Depp in a movie with any present 'Battlestar Galactica' elements as a mere afterthought. Science Fiction is...."Ripping off 'Men in Black' and 'Ghostbusters' in the same movie at the same time ("R.I.P.D.)" Bing...Bang....Boom....Quick and disappointing Box Office run followed by a quick DVD release. Universal Studios is not..... "The Thinking Man's Studio"....when it comes to anything having to do with Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica." It is the house of quick gimmicks, the house of endless "Fake Press Releases" announcing "Fake Battlestar" movies...the house of eternal indifference to all things Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica"....and the house of endless "Narcissistic Photo Ops" for the most untalented people in Science Fiction the world has ever known (Ronald D. Moore.)
Universal Studios will never make a "Battlestar Galactica" movie to anyone's acceptable standards of excellence, and will never make a "Battlestar Galactica" movie period...because of the "Isolationist, Destructive, and Eccentric Attitudes" at Universal Studios towards everything "Battlestar Galactica" and Science Fiction in general. Primarily due to the fact that Universal Studios has never been owned and managed by anyone with even the slightest fondness towards Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica."
Universal Studios is nothing but a...."Fast Food Drive-Thru Window"....for mindless gibberish always claiming to be Science Fiction ("R.I.P.D.") and "Battlestar Galactica" (Ronald D. Moore's "GINO - Galactica in Name Only") series.
Universal Studios is also the only studio in Hollywood without an ongoing Science Fiction movie franchise.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
