A big screen treatment for TV series "Battlestar Galactica" has been thought of. Recently, IGN have come up with a story that Universal Pictures are planning to develop a feature film based on the 1970s sci-fi series and have lined up series creator Glen A. Larson to be the project's screenwriter and producer.
While the "Battlestar Galactica" remake aired on Sci Fi Channel has claimed an Emmy and Peabody Award, the trade reported that the movie version won't be based on this Ronald D. Moore-created series. IGN further insisted that though Universal Studios have denied the report, they were able to confirm the news from independent sources and expect the studio to make official announcement in the coming weeks.
Having been brought to the silver screen before with the re-edited versions of the TV episodes, "Battlestar Galactica" revolves around a band of humans surviving the devastating attack by the vicious cybernetic race known as the Cylons. Led by Commander Adama, they aboard the military vessel Battlestar Galactica and go on a journey to find refuge on a distant planet called Earth.
