Yeah... I don't know....


Earlier this week, we heard rumblings that Bryan Singer may be closing in on a deal to direct a BATTLESTAR GALACTICA feature film.


This would not be an adaptation of the recently concluded SyFy series, but an alternate interpretation of Glen A. Larson's source material.


Variety has now confirmed Singer's attachment, offering a touch more detail:


Universal Pictures has set Bryan Singer to direct and produce a feature version of "Battlestar Galactica," confirming a report on the Hitfix website.


The development is something of a surprise because the most prevailing rumor had Singer flirting with the idea of returning to the X-Men series by taking the reins of "X-Men: First Class," which focuses on the younger mutant characters seen fleetingly at the Xavier Institute of Higher Learning. "Gossip Girl" creator Josh Schwartz wrote the first draft of that script.


"Battlestar Galactica" appears to be on a fast track and sources said that Singer could be looking at a $10 million paycheck to sign on to the film.


...says Mike Fleming over at Variety.


Also, a tip of the hat to Fleming/Variety for actually noting that an Internet movie site broke the news that is being confirmed (HitFix in this case). Hopefully this will be the dawn of a bold new age...
