IGN Movies has learned that Universal Pictures is planning to turn the TV series Battlestar Galactica into a feature film with series creator Glen A. Larson being lined up to script and produce it.
We were informed that the film will be based on the original BSG series from 1978-79 rather than the recent reboot from Sci Fi Channel. The story followed a band of humans who were the only survivors of a devastating attack on their colonial home world by the vicious cybernetic race known as the Cylons. The survivors, led by Commander Adama, embark on a journey through space aboard the military vessel Battlestar Galactica to find refuge on a distant planet called Earth.

Universal Planning A Battlestar Galactica Movie?
Sounds interesting and even though I don't watch the show, I'm glad their finally bringing a live action feature film to theaters. What I don't get is why are they basing the movie on the older version? I thought more people enjoyed the newer one. Hopefully they are thinking about ideas and this isn't final, but were going to have to wait and see.
