This has all happened before, and "Battlestar Galactica" could happen again.
Rumors are swirling on outlets from IGN to The Hollywood Reporter about a possible deal between series creator Glen A. Larson and Universal to bring "Galactica" to the big screen. The kicker is, the movie would not follow Sci Fi's current series, but would instead play off of the original 1978 incarnation. While the Sci Fi series ends this spring, it's already spawned a prequel in "Caprica," as well as rumors of its own big-screen franchise.
Questions abound: Would the Sci Fi series go unacknowledged? How about "Galactica 1980," when the ragtag fleet finally did find Earth? Would Richard Hatch, who stars on the current series, reprise his Apollo role from the 1978 shows?
Universal was forthcoming about none of the above. Representatives from Sci Fi told Zap2it they hadn't heard anything about the plan either.
