Looks like Universal Pictures is looking to bring Battlestar Galactica to the big screen.

Variety reports today that Jack Paglen has been hired to write the big screen adaptation with original BG creator Glen Larson producing the film.

There’s no word on director, whether this will somehow tie into the 2003 series, or if it will be a whole new reboot. ¬†Interestingly, Jack Paglen’s “Transcendence” movie opens April 16, 2014, so there may be publicity for the Johnny Depp movie tied into this announcement.
