Original Battlestar Galactica
producer/creator Glen Larson has the final say on whether or not the franchise can move onto the big screen, but current producers David Eick and Ron Moore are game. In interviews conducted at a Battlestar Galactica
all access event this week, IESB
interviewed Eick and Moore about the upcoming final season of Battlestar Galactica
and what the future may or may not hold.
On the subject of a big screen turn for Battlestar Galactica, Eick was enthused by the prospect but acknowledged they would first have to make peace with Glen Larson, who currently holds the feature film rights.
Eick was enthusiastic about the final season and presented a heavily liberated tone in discussing where the series was headed as it hurtles towards its conclusion. Eick says we should expect Galactica to be more intense and faster paced then it has leading up to now.
is reporting that the original Cylon design from the late 70’s may be making a walking, talking appearance in the Pegasus prequel movie Razor. The original Cylon Centurion design has previously appeared on the new Battlestar Galactica in a display case. Information from SyFyportal seems to indicate we will be seeing the classic baddies lurking about.
In one of the IESB interviews, Ron Moore is asked about whether the constraints over major character death will be lifted. He jokingly says that, yes, the cast needs to be very afraid.
The interviewer also managed to get Moore’s perspective on the up and coming Star Trek re-imagining due from JJ Abrams. Moore was an integral part of the franchise for many years and had nothing but praise for Abrams’s approach to re-imagining the Kirk and Spock characters.
The Battlestar Galactica movie is currently set to debut in November of 2007, with the fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica starting somewhere between January and February of 2008.
