Bryan Singer's <i>Battlestar Galactica</i> Gets a Scriptwriter

Things seem to be moving forward quite quickly with this, as hot on the heels of the news that a BSG movie would be Singer's next project after Jack The Giant Killer Deadline report that John Orloff is on board to write it..

According to Deadline Universal Pictures is closing a deal with John Orloff to write Battlestar Galactica for Bryan Singer to direct. Orloff has previously scripted Anonymous and Legend Of The Guardians among others. At the very least, he's a fan..

“I have wanted to write this movie since I was 12 years old, and built a Galactica model from scratch out of balsa wood, cardboard, old model parts and LEDs. I love BSG, and I would pass on the job rather than frak it up.”

That "Frak" suggests that Orloff is a fan of the recent reboot of the tv show so could that influence his take on the mythology? Both he and Singer, who has been trying to get this project off the ground for 10 years, are clearly passionate about this but it still begs the question: After such a successful rebooting of the old tv show what exactly is the point? Will these guys use the same characters, setting, story? If so what will be the tone? Guess we will find out. How do you CBMers feel about this?
