A long-awaited movie version of Battlestar Galactica is back on track, five years after creator Glen A. Larson first began talks to adapt the cult sci-fi series for the big screen.
Studio bosses at Universal Pictures originally picked up the rights for the original 1978 Tv show in 2009, with X-Men director Bryan Singer attached to direct, but the project suffered a series of delays and went through a script rewrite in 2012.
Now Jack Paglen, the writer behind Johnny Depp's new film Transcendence, has been hired to pen the script, which will be a complete reimagining of Battlestar Galactica, according to Variety.com.
The Tv series featured humans battling a cybernetic race known as Cylons in a distant universe.
Larson is still onboard to produce the film, although it is not yet clear whether Singer will also be involved.
Battlestar Galactica ran for just one season in 1978, and was subsequently revived for a short-lived sequel series, Galactica 1980. It was later rebooted for a series run in 2003 and ran for four seasons.
