Universal Sets Its Sights On Space With A Battlestar Galactica Movie Franchise

11 February 2016 5:17 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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.

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Movie Adds Michael De Luca, Scott Stuber as Producers

10 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal has brought on “Fifty Shades of Grey” producer Michael De Luca along with Dylan Clark and Scott Stuber for its movie version of the sci-fi franchise “Battlestar Galactica.”

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.

Producer Michael De Luca Joins Battlestar Galactical Movie Adaptation

10 February 2016 11:23 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Looks like Star Trek and Star Wars are set to have another competitor in the near future. While not quite as beloved and mainstream as those two series, Battlestar Galactica is a well-respected property in its own right. From the short-lived original series in the late 1970s, to the more recent (and more revered) mid-2000s series, Battlestar certainly has the capacity to be a huge mainstream hit if handled properly.

A live-action film has been in development since 1999, and several years after the run of the mid-2000 series, it seems like now is as good a time as any to trudge forth with a feature film. Universal has now hired producer Michael De Luca to take on the project, The Tracking Board reports.

There is very little information on the film itself, but it's said not to be connected with the 2004 series, but will be drawing from the original 1978 series. »

One of the most iconic Great American Novels is finally coming to the stage. Producer Scott Rudin acquired the rights to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, and hired Aaron Sorkin to adapt the novel and write the script (the two have previously collaborated on Moneyball, Steve Jobs and The Social Network.)

Battlestar Galactica movie is back on

The big screen take on Battlestar Galactica has taken a slow shuffle forward...

Well, the box office returns of Star Wars: The Force Awakens may just have had studios scrambling to their cupboards to see what sci-fi and space projects they have locked away there. Universal? It's found its long-in-gestation big screen take on Battlestar Galactica.

Once upon a time, Bryan Singer was set to bring this one to the screen, based more on the original television series than the Sci-Fi channel reboot. Singer, though, then rejoined the X-Men movie franchise (which has taken up a fair amount of his subsequent time), and his next film after this summer's X-Men: Apocalypse is 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea for Fox.

He remains involved with Battlestar Galactica we understand, and is still the only director we know of attached to the project. He's certainly still serving as executive producer at least. »

The Big Short Review

21 January 2016 4:05 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor for Christian Bale and Best Adapted Screenplay, The Big Short arrives on our shores smothered in accolades and reeking of Oscar buzz. Based on the book of the same name by Michael Lewis (Moneyball), it marks director Adam McKay’s first foray into big drama, having very successfully forged his way with comedy and his creative partnership with Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Step Brothers, The Other Guys). Here sans Ferrell, he moves away from the jokes but holds tight to his wit as he dives into the Us financial crisis of 2008.   While not the most enticing of concepts, two hours of people talking about mortgages and banking, McKay has pulled some very skilful moves. First, by assembling a top notch cast at the top of their game in the shape of Christian Bale, Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt. »

Movie Review: The Big Short

18 January 2016 2:03 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Default swaps, synthetic Cdo, and subprime loans are not the first things that come to mind when watching a star-studded Hollywood drama. In fact, unless one happens to be a Wall Street stock advisor, these terms sound like nothing more than a superfluous runaround to ensure that the men in charge stay in charge – at least, that’s how narrator Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling) sells it. As the eyes, ears, and big mouth of the audience, smooth trader Vennett takes viewers by the hand and leads them down the parade of corruption, stupidity, and denial that went into the stock market crash of 2008. He also finds time to define all of the previously mentioned terms, so us simple folk can keep up and focus on the terrible events that transpired.

Adapted from Michael Lewis’ 2010 novel of the same name, The Big Short is about as comical as tragedy can get. »

With writing credits across both television and film that include "The West Wing," "The Newsroom," "A Few Good Men," "Steve Jobs," "Moneyball," and more, Aaron Sorkin, for all his acclaim, has yet to make the leap to directing. But during The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith last fall, he revealed that he once considered directing a film which won him a screenwriting Oscar.

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin will make his directorial debut on the poker drama “Molly’s Game” at Sony with Mark Gordon and Amy Pascal producing.

Sorkin has been working on the script for the project, based on Molly Bloom’s memoir, since 2014 with Gordon. The duo worked together on “Steve Jobs,” for which Sorkin received a Writers Guild of America screenplay nomination in the adapted category on Wednesday.

Sorkin is one of Hollywood’s best-known writers. He won a WGA award and the Oscar for adapted screenplay in 2011 for “The Social Network,” received WGA nominations for “Moneyball” and “The American President” and won a 2001 WGA Award for “The West Wing.”

Aaron Sorkin To Make Directorial Debut With Molly’s Game

7 January 2016 5:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After an impressive career of writing acclaimed films like The Social NetworkMoneyball and Steve Jobs, not to mention having created one of the most iconic TV series of all-time in The West Wing, Aaron Sorkin is finally set to make his directorial debut with Molly’s Game.

An adaptation of Molly Bloom’s memoir, the project will be produced by Mark Gordon and Amy Pascal and is being set up at Sony Pictures. In addition to directing, Sorkin will also pen the screenplay, which is certainly good news given how brilliant he is when it comes to adapting compelling novels.

Like the book, the film will follow the titular Molly, an incredibly talented skier who was at one point, ranked No. 3 in North America in moguls, and also held a 3.9 Gpa in college. However, she failed to make the Olympic team and ended up running “the most exclusive high-stakes poker game in the world. »

The Big Short” is taking its case to Washington, D.C., Variety has learned.

The comedy about the financial crisis paints a devastating portrait of risk taking by the “too big to fail” banks and slams government officials for not doing more to crack down on Wall Street’s excesses.

The film’s director Adam McKay will visit Washington on Jan. 25 for a screening of “The Big Short” hosted by the economic studies branch at the Brookings Institution.
