    Singer's 'Battlestar" Moves Forward

    Does anybody remember Bryan Singer? You know, the guy who directed "Usual Suspects", "X-Men", "X2", and "Superman Returns" among other films. He seems to have fallen off the map lately, although he managed to put Tom Cruise back on the map with 2008's "Valkyrie". There have been rumors that Singer was eyeing a return to the X-Men franchise but of course those were just rumors and not even news worthy despite some of the coverage. He's been mentioned as a possible director for "Freedom Formula", "Jack The Giant Killer", "Cape Shooters", and "Battlestar Galactica".

    According to Examiner, the speculation can be put to rest, Singer's "Battlestar Galactica" will indeed be his next project and has moved into pre-production.

    Now that pre-production has started, any rumors that Singer's next project was going to be "X" related (as in X-Men) has been put to rest, along with any shot he had of helming another Superman flick. There's been no word if Moore will be involved in the re-reboot, yet given the rumored "rocky" relationship between Larson and Moore, it seems unlikely.

    I personally think this is a genre that Singer is very comfortable in and in some people's minds he is looking to redeem himself to the fanboy masses after "Superman Returns". This could be a good time to get a film like this one up and running with Abrams' "Star Trek" sparking interest in space epics again.  Speaking of Trek, Singer's love for the Trek universe is sure rear its alien head which could either be a good thing or a bad thing. I'm sure you're going to get a classic sci-fi feel from Singer's "Battlestar" mixed with a lot of effect shots. You can expect a release sometime in 2012 although 2011 is still a possibility, albeit a big stretch.
