Tom Cruise's United Artists Plots Sci-Fi Trilogy From Ronald D. Moore


So, a writer/producer for Battlestar Galactica, Ronald D. Moore, is writing a sci-fi trilogy for Tom Cruise's fledgling United Artists. That's all of the info offered basically. As we've said before, original sci-fi seems to be on the comeback as we close out the decade and enter a considerable unknown. Moore previously worked on Cruise's Mission: Impossible 2. Here's what UA partner Paula Wagner had to say 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."

After striking out with Lions For Lambs, launching a force field against Valkyrie's bad buzz and green lighting a stupid remake of Teen Witch, UA needs to produce a seriously popular and profitable franchise. More news on Moore's trilogy as it develops. Is it just me or should Cruise make two more Risky Business films? Just me? Eeek.
