Very interesting indeed!

Hope they do it right this time...

I think it will be a challenge. The screen play writer is somewhat new to Hollywood (3-5 years), and I haven't seen any of her work. She seems a bit young also, so I am not sure how well she will understand something come and gone decades before she was even born. :erk:

So...dead again? Larson's feature film property ownership was settled last year with his estate, so there theoretically shouldn't be any legal obstacles for Universal any more. Has Lucy pulled the football away and sent us astrum-over-teacup again?

DeLuca was just starting %0 Shades Darker when the announcement was made that he was going to take the lead on Galactica. As soon as that wrapped he was hired to produce the Oscars coming up this weekend. I hope now was this has finished he is able to address the Galactica movie. I am pretty sure that if we don't hear anything in the next 3-6 months I would call story closed, but also we have no idea if he has a small office set up at Uni with a small crew working away. I did call Uni about 6 months ago, and asked to be transferred to his office. The operator was baffled. He received calls now, and then and she took a transfer call for him just the day before and now the number was gone. So not sure what to make of that.

I just found out that Michael De Luca has moved back to Uni. Time to make that phone call again.

Looking forward to hearing what you find out. Hopefully there's still life in the old property yet, and that Universal didn't just settle with the estate to simply bury it from view.

I have a friend working the Oscars tonight, and he is a BSG fan and if by chance he meets up with Michael De Luca I asked him to check the status.

Also just a gut feeling the Mr De Luca has been working the event leading up tonight all week non stop. I am assuming tomorrow if not late tonight he is blasting out of town back home for the week. It won't stop me from calling his office tomorrow anyway.

Good news for Michael, bad news for the Galactica movie.

Sigh. I was afraid something bad might happen. Didn't know that it would be specifically this particular turn of events, but it definitely appears that any kind of new BSG film project has officially entered "cursed" mode. I think this is the fourth or fifth failure to launch in the past 2 decades now. Congrats rightfully go to Michael for the progress in his career, but this still makes me sad. :sad:
