All this has happened before, and all this will happen again. The Tracking Board reports Michael De Luca will join Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark to produce Universal's Battlestar Galactica feature film. Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica was cancelled by Syfy after one season. ABC cancelled the 1970s original Battlestar Galactica series that spawned it all, also after one season.
Reportedly, Universal has been looking to make a Battlestar Galactica film since the late 1990s, but hit pause, when Syfy's 2003 mini-series and 2005 Battlestar Galactica TV series went forward. Movie talk bubbled up again in 2009. According to The Tracking Board, the feature version is expected to be more in line with the late Glen Larson's original 1978 series. In 2014, prior to his passing, Variety reported Larson would be involved with the film.

All this has happened before and all this will happen again thanks to a deal Universal has made to develop the long-gestating Battlestar Galactica film.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, producer Michael De Luca is teaming up with producers Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark of Bluegrass Films to bring Battlestar Galactica to the big screen. Ever since the rebooted television series ended in 2009, Universal has been looking to bring the Battlestar franchise to the big screen, attaching Bryan Singer to direct at one point. He eventually left the project when it couldn’t get off the ground, but in 2014 it was said series creator Glen A. Larson was working on the project with Transcendence writer Jack Palgen. That project again fell through.

Since its debut in 1978, Battlestar Galactica has never really been absent from popular culture. That first series may have only run for one season, but it has been rebooted, re-imagined and re-worked more times than anyone over the age of 35 would probably care to remember. Despite more failures to launch than successful orbits, Universal has assembled a team of powerhouse producers to make a Battlestar Galactica movie franchise a reality.
Michael De Luca (Captain Phillips, Moneyball, The Social Network, and the Fifty Shades franchise), Scott Stuber (The Break-Up, The Kingdom, Ted) and Dylan Clark (The Heat, the Planet Of The Apes franchise) are combining their considerable forces to begin piecing together what the studio hopes will become a movie series of the tent-pole variety. While that sounds, perhaps, ill-advised, it is certainly the case that the Battlestar Galactica brand has enormous potential for development.

Way back in 2009, Universal Pictures announced plans to bring Battlestar Galactica back to the big screen, following the success of Ronald D. Moore's hit Syfy series which ended its run that year. Over the years, Bryan Singer was attached to direct at one point, although be parted ways with the project in 2014. Today we have word from The Hollywood Reporter that the studio is taking another crack at the big-screen project, with producers Michael De Luca, Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark boarding the project.
We last reported on the Battlestar Galactica movie back in 2014, when Transcendence writer Jack Paglen was brought on to work on the script. Back in 2011, John Orloff (Anonymous) signed on to write the script, which was said, at the time, to be based on the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica TV series, and not the 2003 Battlestar Galactica remake series. The project doesn't currently have any writers attached, »
De Luca finalized a three-year first-look deal to produce movies for Universal Pictures last year and is producing the next two “Fifty Shades of Grey” films. Stuber and Clark operate through Bluegrass Films, based at Universal.
Variety reported in April 2014 that original series creator Glen Larson was on board to produce the “Battlestar Galactica” film at Universal with “Transcendence” writer Jack Paglen on board. Larson died later that year.
There have been four “Galactica” TV series (including the brief “Galactica 1980” and “Caprica”). The first, starring Lorne Greene and Richard Hatch, ran during the 1978-79 season and was centered on humans engaged in a lengthy war against a cybernetic race known as the Cylons while searching for Earth.

Sheldon’s Meemaw paid her beloved Moonpie a visit on Thursday’s Big Bang Theory, which found two of the most important women in his life at odds.
Dr. Cooper’s frequently-discussed-but-never-before-seen grandmother (as portrayed by Oscar nominee June Squibb) arrived from Texas in the aptly titled “The Meemaw Materialization,” and it wasn’t long before she and Amy were at each other’s throats.
The reason, you might ask?
The otherwise endearing Meemaw has an axe to grind with Shelly’s girlfriend over her decision to break up with him last year. »
