question of the day: What is Bryan Singer gonna do with ‘Battlestar Galactica’?

Have you heard? Universal has signed Bryan Singer — of Valkyrie, X-Men, and The Usual Suspects fame — to produce and direct a Battlestar Galactica feature film.

I wrote a bit about my thoughts on this prospect yesterday over at Film.com. The gist: I don’t see how this can end up as anything other than a generic space opera, Singer’s talent aside.

Am I wrong? Is there something left to do with BSG that is neither a continuation of Ron Moore’s Sci Fi Channel epic nor a cheap-ish imitation of Star Wars (just like the 1970s TV show was)?

What is Bryan Singer gonna do with Battlestar Galactica?
