Battlestar Galactica film in development

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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.

Currently, there is no writer on this adaptation of Battlestar; only the three producers have been named. De Luca has produced American History X, The Social Network and recently »

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

17 hours ago | 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.

Twitter Shares Plummet on Weak Q4 User Growth

10 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Twitter continued to battle slowing growth in its core users in the fourth quarter, as the social network promised to change broken, confusing elements that are driving users away. Shares tanked as much as 10 percent immediately after the report was released, then backtracked some of the decline to trade about 6.2 percent lower at $14.15 in recent after-hours trading. Twitter has been plagued by questions about its growth since its debut as a public company. The social network faces the conundrum that its quirky elements, like character-count limits and real-time feeds, are what its adherents treasure most but make Twitter unwelcoming for new members. »

The Battlestar Galactica Reboot Is Still On, Get The Details

10 February 2016 12:49 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This truly is the age of sci-fi revivals. The Star Wars franchise just kicked off a new era of live action entries with The Force Awakens last December. The Star Trek movie reboots have been performing well since 2009, and CBS will bring the property back as an online series in 2017. However, one project that hasn’t gained much traction lately is Universal’s theatrical Battlestar Galactica reboot. The last major update we got was in 2014, and since then news on its development has been almost nonexistent. Well, evidently it’s still a go, as they’ve just brought aboard a successful producer. The Social Network’s Michael de Luca has signed on to produce Battlestar Galactica, according to The Tracking Board. This doesn’t provide any new details on the movie’s creative direction, but de Luca reportedly describes himself as a " »

‘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.

Aaron Sorkin to Adapt ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ for B’way

10 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Aaron Sorkin is bringing Scout Finch to the spotlight. The Academy Award–winning screenwriter behind “The Social Network” and “Steve Jobs” is reteaming with producer Scott Rudin with a stage adaptation of “To Kill A Mockingbird” for the 2017–18 Broadway season. Taking a break from musical theater, Tony-winning director Bartlett Sher (“The King and I,” “Fiddler on the Roof”) is also attached for the adaptation of Harper Lee’s 1960 American classic. Both Sorkin and Rudin have a history in the theater; Rudin is particularly seasoned with hits like “A Raisin in the Sun” and “The Book of Mormon,” while Sorkin is best known in theater circles for “A Few Good Men,” for which he also wrote the screenplay. With such heavy-hitters already attached, we can’t wait to see how casting shakes up! Is it too early to tap “Room” star Jacob Tremblay as Scout’s 10-year-old brother, Jem Finch? And »

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. »

Twitter Will Reshuffle Your Tweets After All

10 February 2016 6:39 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Twitter introduced an optional new feature Wednesday that will resurface tweets you missed. The social network is known for its real-time delivery of short messages in reverse chronological order. But the company faced an outcry over the weekend after BuzzFeed News reported it may abandon that approach for a system that would prioritize buzzy items of interest or posts that a user missed while not on Twitter. (Facebook does something similar.) Wednesday’s announcement appeared to contradict CEO Jack Dorsey response to the weekend’s brouhaha, when he tweeted that the company “never planned to reorder timelines.” Also Read: Why »

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. »

Instagram Exploring Longer Video Ad Format With 60-Second Spots

8 February 2016 1:35 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Instagram is expanding its ad offer with a brand new 60-second format -- a move that could enable brands to share longer creative in the vein of a traditional TV commercial.

The social network, which boasts 400 million monthly users, unveiled the capability ahead of last night’s Super Bowl. T-Mobile and Warner Brothers were among the first to take advantage of the feature -- promoting a Drake-starring Super Bowl ad and a movie trailer for How to Be Single, respectively.

Video ad options on Instagram have previously been restricted to either 15 or 30 seconds. But “we recognize that advertisers have a variety of creative resources and want to bring more choice to help them reach their business goals,” the company told TechCrunch.

This is the latest push by the Facebook-owned site to amp up sales. Instagram launched ads in 2013, and now offers three different formats -- photos, videos and carousels -- »

Gotham and Metropolis Revealed in 'Batman v Superman' Turkish Airlines Super Bowl Ads

7 February 2016 1:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a new report surfaced that revealed what studios were planning on airing new movie footage during Super Bowl 50. That report claimed that Warner Bros. would be sitting out today's big game, which surprised some fans, especially since their highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25. However, that report did tease that, while there may not be a new trailer during the big game, there may be an ad featuring Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice characters from one of the movie's promotional partners. During today's pre-game coverage, Turkish Airlines unveiled two new ads, announcing that the airline now offers "service" to both Gotham and Metropolis.

One ad features Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne representing Gotham, who is rebuilding his city through a substantial grant from his foundation, with Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor representing Metropolis, which is being rebuilt thanks to Lex's generous donations. »

Listen to Junkie Xl's 'Dawn of Justice' Batman Theme

5 February 2016 11:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in November 2014, it was revealed that composer Hans Zimmer is teaming with Junkie Xl (a.k.a. Tom Holkenberg) to work on the score for Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hans Zimmer will craft the theme for Superman (Henry Cavill), like he did in 2013's Man of Steel, with Junkie Xl working on a new Batman (Ben Affleck) theme. Earlier today, Water Tower Music released the Batman theme, entitled "Men Are Still Good (The Batman Suite), which you can listen to below.

Before taking on the job, Hans Zimmer admitted in September 2013 that he was unsure about taking on this job, because he didn't want to create new Batman music after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Junkie Xl, a.k.a. Tom Holkenborg, most recently composed scores for Mad Max: Fury Road, Black Mass and Point Break, along with the upcoming Deadpool. »

This Is How Facebook Has Changed Over the Past 12 Years

Happy anniversary, Facebook! What is the gift theme for 12 years? It's hot fudge, right? Quick, someone pour hot fudge all over Mark Zuckerberg! To celebrate the anniversary of Facebook's debut on the World Wide Web, we thought we'd take a look back at what the social media site used to look like, way back when it was only available for Harvard students and "poking" was still a thing. Remember poking? That was a weird time for everyone. 2004 If you've seen The Social Network, then you know that Facebook started as just a website for Harvard students. This is what the login page looked like back then. Notice how "Harvard University" is in giant letters? We get it, »
