Jay Basu to write Battlestar Galactica reboot for Universal
Jay Basu (The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Charlie’s Angels, Labyrinth) has come on board Universal’s Battlestar Galactica reboot to pen the script for the reimaging of the television series created by Glen Larson, The Wrap has confirmed. Lisa Joy wrote an earlier draft of the script.

Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games franchise, Red Sparrow) is directing the project. Dylan Clark (Oblivion) will produce for his Dylan Clark productions alongside Michael De Luca Productions (Social Network). Scott Stuber (Identity Thief) will executive produce. Jay Polidoro and Lexi Barta will oversee the project for Universal, with Brian Williams overseeing for Dylan Clark Productions. Elishia Holmes will oversee for Michael De Luca Productions.

Battlestar Galactica began with the 1978 television series, which chronicled the adventures of space faring vessel centuries in the future. At the end of a millenia-long conflict with a robotic race known as the Cylons, the last surviving warship, the Galactica, leads a convoy of hundreds of human vessels in search of a mythic planet called Earth.
The first Battlestar Galactica series was followed by a brief sequel/spinoff series, Galactica: 1980, two years later. The franchise is arguably best known today, however, as a rebooted television version that premiered in 2004. That series, created by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, was followed by a short lived prequel series, Caprica, in 2010 and a webseries, Blood & Chrome, in 2012. It is believed that the new Battlestar Galactica movie, which is being produced by Bluegrass Films, will again reboot the franchise.

Loved Galactica as a kid in the 70's 80's. Was glued to the TV when the new series was on. I thought Olmos was fantastic as Adama. His speech to the crew telling they were at war was great. I'll be looking forward to watching this version as well. Too bad they couldn't sneak Richard Hatch into it. On a side note I met him a few years before he passed here at a comic show. What an interesting guy, It was the second time he was at this show and I guess most people had seen him the year before so only 5 of us showed up to his panel. So he had us pull up the chairs in a tight circle and then just started BSing with us telling us about his days on the show. Very personable and nice to his fans.

Yeah a lot of the cast are pretty cool. Here I'm hanging out with Michael Hogan (Col. SAUL Tigh).

Aaron Douglas (Chief Tyrol) was awesome. He kept screaming out "so sat we all" and the room would explode with everyone repeating it back.
