Battlestar Galactica producer Ron Moore

Tom Cruise’s United Artists have signed a deal with Ronald Moore, showrunner, executive producer, and co-creator of the relaunched Battlestar Galactica franchise that has been rocking SciFi viewers for four seasons. Moore has previously worked with Cruise on Mission Impossible: II and has dipped his writing and producing fingers into both Battlestar and Star Trek.

Moore has a busy slate which includes a possible re-imagining of The Thing (something I will assuredly rip into in a separate article), a Jessica Biel vehicle called Die A Little, and more Battlestar Galactica-related projects.

The deal with UA is for a science fiction trilogy, the details of which are unknown and, at this juncture, probably don’t exist as much more than thoughts and words on a napkin.

To me, this is a good thing. I’ve only recently started watching Battlestar Galactica on DVD, and it’s fairly entertaining. Season One seemed to get better with each episode, though it’s far from perfect thus far. But we need more good SciFi on the screen. It’s a genre that gets little theatrical attention and often has films that come up short. I’m looking for a nice, awesome science fiction epic that spans three movies. Oh and here we go! Enter Ronald Moore. As details arrive we’ll get more answers as to whether or not this is something to pin our astronomical hopes on or not.
