Ronald D. Moore writes film trilogy
If you haven't been watching Battlestar Galactica then you're insane because it's clearly one of the best television shows to be shown in years, and it's definitely deserving of a big screen outing. However that's not going to happen, but some science fiction epic is coming from the typewriter or Ronald D. Moore.
News today has him signed with United Artists to create a science fiction trilogy for cinema, and details of the project are being kept rather quiet.
Ronald D. Moore hasn't just reimagined Battlestar Galactica perfectly, he's written on a number of other television shows including Roswell, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and The Next Generation, as well as films such as Star Trek: First Contact and Generations and Mission: Impossible II. He's also credited with The Thing remake according to Variety.
He's certainly got tons of talent to show, and it seems United Artists have recognised that – quite frankly I'm not sure who wouldn't have at this stage of the Battlestar Galactica run.
Now he's signed up for a three film deal at UA with Paula Wagner saying the following about him:
“Over the last decade Ron has emerged as the foremost sci-fi, fantasy creator, writer in the industry and working with him to bring his creative talents to the big screen is a great partnership for our studio.”
However there's nothing mentioned about the project name or any further details, so we're going to have to be patient here, and that's something that's not going to be difficult while we have Battlestar Galactica to keep us happy.
