I just read something about Universal planning a BSG reboot movie. Either we get more of the same BSG or no BSG at all. Nobody lays a finger on my favorite show.
Hollywood is doing what it does though.
Successfully reboot something. It runs its course. Wait a few years. Reboot it again.
If you thought the past 10-15 years of first-round reboots was bad? Just wait. Now they’re beginning the second and third rounds. Where they reboot a rebooted property that’s been rebooted already.
This new movie will have nothing to do with the great 2003-2009 show.
It will not be a continuation of the 1978 camp-fest.
It’s going to be a reboot in the vein of all the superheroes, of Star Trek 2009, of 21 Jump Street with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. It’s going to pick-and-choose which elements it wants and be otherwise unrelated.
IF it happens.
Thankfully they said they where doing this 2-3 years ago, and it never came about either. So take this “announcement” with a basestar sized grain of salt, too.
I don’t want another reboot of BSG, personally, though.
