As it has been doing since 2001 (the beginning of its "Fake Battlestar Galactica" press releases), Universal Studios deftly demonstrates the power it has to make it snow during the summer months.
Red Flag #1:
Universal Studios wants to "reimagine" Battlestar Galactica once again. As if the first time around via Ronald D. Moore's laughable reimagining wasn't disastrous enough, right? Of course this press release like all of the others is fake so, why bother worrying? Of course, the fact that Universal Studios still mentions the word "reimagining" even in its "Fake Battlestar Galactica Press Releases" is sadly indicative of the fact that Universal Studios remains clueless as to what "Battlestar Galactica" really is and never should have owned it in the first place.
Red Flag #2:
Jack Paglen has got to be the "least happening scriptwriter right now" in all of Hollywood. Not in demand by anyone due to Johnny Depp's latest theatrical flop. So of course it makes perfect sense that Universal Studios would "pencil him in" as the scriptwriter of its latest "Fake Battlestar Galactica" movie that will never happen because when the movie doesn't happen, everyone will still not know who the hell Jack Paglen is.
Red Flag #3:
When was the last time Glen A. Larson had a formal, honest to gosh paying job of any sort in all of Hollywood? I'm thinking the "Knight Rider" reboot back in 2006 or so (on NBC-TV) where he was nothing more than an "Executive Consultant." Glen A. Larson is even more so...."not happening"....right now in all of Hollywood than Jack Paglen.
Universal Studios chose two of the most....."least effective"....guys in all of Hollywood to attach their...."Fake Battlestar Galactica"....movie to. Convenient, right? Makes it that much easier for this latest fake press release to quietly blow over until it's time for Universal Studios to announce its next "Fake Battlestar Galactica Movie" in 2016.
Paglen's last paying gig was a flop and Glen A. Larson (the poor guy) is not getting any younger.
File this one under....
"Development Hell Ad Infinitum" once again for a "Battlestar Galactica" movie.
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.
