Words are, the 'Superman Returns' helmer is on the verge of producing and possibly directing a brand new feature for the TV series originally created by Glen A. Larson.

Should a new "Battlestar Galactica" movie is made, film director Bryan Singer could be involved in the project. HitFix broke the news that Universal Pictures is nearing a deal with the helmer of "Superman Returns" to produce and possibly direct a brand new feature film that is based on the 1970s sci-fi series.

If Singer were indeed involved in the project, it won't be his first work for the feature version. Back in 2001, the 43-year-old filmmaker teamed up with producer Tom De Santo in developing a Battlestar Galactica sequel to the original series. Three months before shooting took place, 9/11 struck and since there are similarities between the planned plot and real-life tragedy, the project was shelved.

In late February this year, speculation that the popular TV series may get a big screen treatment was surfacing. IGN reported that Universal Pictures is planning to develop a feature film based on the 1970s sci-fi series and had lined up series creator Glen A. Larson to be the project's screenwriter and producer.

Having been brought to the silver screen before with the re-edited versions of the TV episodes, "Battlestar Galactica" is said to revolve 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.
