BREAKING NEWS: NEW BATTLE STAR GALACTICA MOVIE IN 2013/2014 ????

Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming is a 1999 science-fiction action film. It was a project to create a pilot film for a proposed new Battlestar Galactica television series that would pick up where the original 1978 series left off. All continuity related to Galactica 1980 would have been completely ignored.

[edit] The Second Coming

Created, executive produced and co-directed by Richard Hatch who starred in the original series as Captain Apollo, the pilot film was conceived to convince Universal Studios, the owner of the Battlestar Galactica franchise rights, to greenlight a new project based on this concept. The pilot film was co-directed by Jay Woelfel and produced by Johnnie J. Young.

Richard Hatch was able to get many stars from the original series including Richard Lynch (in place of Patrick Macnee as Count Iblis), John Colicos (Count Baltar), and Terry Carter (Colonel Tigh, now President of the Quorum of Twelve) to appear in the film. Hatch himself also reprised his own role of Apollo (now Commander of the Fleet).

Filming on the project began in the summer of 1998 and lasted through late 1999. Some of the filming was done in conjunction with the Battlestar Galactica 20th Yahren Reunion which was held at the Los Angeles Hilton in September 1998.

The finished edit of Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming had a running time of thirty minutes in length. A four minute trailer was later assembled from this thirty minute version and state of the art computer generated special effects were added. The rare thirty minute version of the pilot film has never been shown publicly.

The partially complete Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming trailer was first shown at DragonCon in Atlanta on July 3, 1999 and received rave reviews from fans. Once it was complete, Hatch traveled to a series of science fiction conventions to show the trailer and it proved to be very popular at these events.

However, Hatch never succeeded in getting Universal's attention, and a different project, the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica conceived by Ronald D. Moore was ultimately pursued.

Later, Richard Hatch joined the new Battlestar Galactica series cast as the recurring character Tom Zarek. However, Hatch continues to push for a revival/continuation of his own vision of the original series (he writes original novels based on it).

There are no plans to release Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming on DVD.
[edit] Competing developments

Concurrent with The Second Coming was Glen A. Larson's movie proposal. This would have revived BSG as a feature film, centering around the Battlestar Pegasus, set after its appearance in the TV show, and consistent with Galactica 1980.

The project that got the go ahead was the re-imagining of the original series by Ronald D. Moore, which was greenlit as a miniseries by the Sci Fi Channel.

Now, a new movie is being prepared, based on the 1978 TV series, but it is not a sequel to that series, and is set to be released in 2013.

Bryan Singer reboot of Battlestar Galactica due 2013/2014
Bryan Singer has announced that his version of Battlestar Galactica will hit theatres in either 2013 or 2014

this was rumoured shortly after the tv show went off the air and most people did not believe another reboot would happen so quickly

Singer has talked about doing the movie for awhile and he just wrapped up Jack the Giant Killer and while prepping the PR for that movie he was asked what is next--he has hired John Orloff to write the screen play.

It was first announced in 2009 this was to happen--now Singer has moved the movie as his next project and delaying Exalibur to sometime later.

The latest developments happened earlier in the year when Glen A Larson finally broke his silence and admitted he had problems with Moore/eick version--he did not like the amped up sex in the series-Larson is a Mormon and had some of his beliefs intwinded with the original series.

What could be interesting is that there is a new Battlestar Galactica series due in late 2012 called Blood and Chrome that is about the first cylon war

So if Singer follow through with his plans for the movie--it cause some confusion as Singer reportedly will go back to the original series and have the Cylons created by aliens

should be interesting

I was amazed how much he aged between BSG and Star Trak NG. Lost all of his blond mop-top, and looked 40 years older.
