"At Wonder Con this afternoon, actor and Battlestar superfan Richard Hatch, who played Captain Apollo in the original series and appeared as Tom Zarek in the 2004 re-imagining, stated that Universal has been trying to make another Battlestar movie for the last ten years, but was unable to get it off the ground. But now, with the success of The Force Awakens, the prospect is becoming more attractive to the studio, and Hatch claims that the ball is finally rolling at Universal."
The REAL reasons why Universal Studios hasn't made a..."Battlestar"....movie in the past 10 years alone...
1. Universal Studios really hasn't wanted to make a..."Battlestar"...movie ever.
2. Bryan Singer has bailed out of making every..."Battlestar"....movie ever announced going back 10 years, in addition to the 99% of the other movies he has bailed out of making throughout his entire shaky career.
3. Universal Studios has said..."No"....to Tom DeSanto wanting to make a..."Battlestar"...movie after Bryan Singer. Universal Studios has said...."No"....to other interested corporations wanting to buy the...."Battlestar"....property and start it up again during the era of the Richard Hatch promo trailer circa 1999. And finally, going back farther than 10 years, Universal Studios has said...."No"....to...
4. A..."Battlestar"...revival during the era of..."Star Trek: The Next Generation"...."Deep Space Nine"...."Voyager"...."Babylon 5"...."Time Trax"...."Stargate"...and..."Farscape"....
Gee!! One gets the impression that Universal Studios perhaps has (quite frankly) just never liked..."Battlestar Galactica!!"....even in the midst of the favorable commercial climate created by...."Star Trek: The Next Generation"....and those other productions at the time.
Why has Universal Studios been unable to make a..."Battlestar"....production during the past 10 years and earlier? Because they just haven't wanted to make one. That's why.
But Universal Studios sure loves to put out those dishonest / crooked / misleading / balderdash / ...."Fake Battlestar Movie Press Releases"...they keep releasing every two years. Including the latest fake one with Michael De Luca.
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.
