In a report that recalls the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” reboot controversy, it appears that Universal is pushing for a “Battlestar Galactica” feature.
Unfortunately, for fans of the dearly departed Syfy (then Sci Fi) hit, the studio is planning “a complete reimagining of the story,” according to “Variety.”
While the cast would not return, the original series’ creator, Glen Larson, is on board to produce.
A reboot itself of the late ‘70s TV series, “BSG” ran from 2004 to 2009, with an all-star cast that included Mary McDonnell (“Major Crimes”), Edward James Olmos, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park (“Hawaii Five-O”) and Katee Sackhoff.
The show spawned three television movies, most recently 2012’s spinoff “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.”
Though the show has been reinvented numerous times, longtime fans might cause an uproar, like “Buffy” fans did when a feature was planned without the involvement of creator Joss Whedon or series star Sarah Michelle Gellar.
