Another Battlestar?

Director Bryan Singer and Glen Larson (creator of the original TV Battlestar Galactica and other hit shows) are planning a big-screen Battlestar Galactica totally unrelated to the recent "re-imagined" TV series on Sci-Fi/SyFy.

Another re-imagining. A re-re-imaginging. I like BSG, but for Pete's sake let it alone for a few years, mmmkay? I could almost forgive the back-to-back Hulk re-imaginings given how bad the first one was, but this is getting to be a real trend. Like the Batman re-start.

One re-imagining per property per decade, please.

the worst part is that the latest Battlestar Galactica (the Sci-Fi version) was actually really good. It's not like Hulk or Batman where the last version was so bad that it was a better choice just to start completely over.

Yeah, that's a good point about the Battlestar remake being a lot better than the initial Hulk or Batman remakes. I didn't think the Michael Keaton batman was that bad, but by the time Clooney was involved it was pretty terrible. Dark Knight was much better.

I don't know if they're going to do a full reboot of Star Trek and continue this timeline, but I think they gave it enough distance from the prior stuff. Last movie was 2002, "Enterprise" ran until 2005 but nobody watched it.

Plus, Trek has several distinct iterations. Since we're dealing with TOS, you could almost argue that the clock should start back with Star Trek VI (or 'Generations', if you feel that the Kirk stuff in that movie should count...which only brings the clock up to 1993).
