Universal is now working on a third version of 'Battlestar Galactica,' this time for the big screen, and have hired 'Transcendence' screenwriter Jack Paglen to write it. As when Ron Moore did it, it's likely that it will take the basic outline and go its own way with it (though there will surely be Cylons and a character named Starbuck).
Sometimes when a film is released, the people involved will talk up a sequel regardless if one will actually happen. Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' set up a sequel, and both Scott and star Noomi Rapace suggested that 'Prometheus 2' would happen, but little came of it. Until today, as a writer has just been hired to pen the sequel.
