“Don’t worry, I’m not gonna frak it up.” That’s what screenwriter John Orloff told the Los Angeles Times when it was announced that he’d been hired to write a new Battlestar Galactica movie for Universal and director Bryan Singer. Orloff wrote Anonymous, which is about to hit theaters; he also scripted Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and A Mighty Heart. He was Emmy-nominated for his work on the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers. Like Singer, he’s a long time Battlestar Galactica fan and has what he calls “a pretty radical take” on the material. We’ve got more after the jump. Read More »

In 2009 we got wind of two possible reboot projects from producer/director Bryan Singer. One was a new take on Excalibur, the bloody, sexy and weird telling of the Arthurian legend from director John Boorman. The other was Battlestar Galactica, a prospect that seems loaded with the potential to fail, given the outrageous popularity of the recent TV reboot.

One of those projects, Excalibur, is now dead, thanks to another Arthurian film that Warner Bros. decided to pursue in lieu of Singer’s reboot. That has left room for the filmmaker to concentrate on Galactica. Read More »

After a long day of flying around in a Viper attempting to preserve the precious few human beings left in the galaxy, a pilot needs a drink. And the best of the best drink out of this. Quantum Mechanix Inc. has created a 1:1 prop replica “Top Gun” stein from Battlestar Galactica, perfect for pretending you just wasted some frakkin’ toasters and need to kick back.

If you need a new way to visualize all the major events that shaped the universe in which Battlestar Galactica takes place, this might help. Billy Ray created the graphic, and says “I created this visual timeline of the Battlestar Galactica universe after the season 4, episode 17 “No Exit” data dump resulted in near aneurism for my friends and me. I later updated it to include key points from the “Caprica” pilot movie.” I still need to go back to season four and finish the series off, so can’t comment on the degree to which this helps or hurts any understanding of the timeline. So have at it in the comments, please.

Page 2

Yes, Page 2 has returned. For a while the excess bits were not enough to build a regular Page 2 column, but I’ve recently been noticing items piling up that I wished that we had gotten to post on the site, but just didn’t have time. I’m not sure how regular this column will be published (and we’ll most likely take a break during the Sundance Film Festival). That said, enjoy the return of Page 2!
