Battlestar Galactica feature film is gearing up at Universal

After having multiple TV series, it seems as though Battlestar Galactica will soon again become part of geek consciousness. Variety reports that a feature film version is once again in the works, who is currently being scribed by Transcendence screenwriter, Jack Paglen. The original series creator Glen Larson, is also onboard as a producer for the film.  



First conceived in 1978, Battlestar Galactica had a major resurgence, when Ronald D. Moore and David Eick resurrected the series in 2003. The show is set in the far distant future, where humans live on The Twelve Colonies, a series of twelve different planets within a galaxy. They are attacked by cybernetic robots, called Cylons, who wish to destroy all of humanity. After a major attack that wipes out most of the human race, the rest of civilization that exists, embark on a journey aboard the Battlestar Galactica, a giant warship, in search of the lost 13th colony, Earth.  The X-Men: Days of Future Past Director, Bryan Singer, was attached to the feature film version a few years back, which would've been a continuation of the original 1978 series.
