Bryan Singer’s Excalibur is Dead, Focuses on Battlestar Galactica

Movie News


Two years ago, Bryan Singer wanted to do an update on John Boorman’s epic 1981 spin on the King Arthur legend “Excalibur” but WB killed that idea and now since that project has been flushed down the toilet, Singer explains to SFX Magazine about what happened during the annual Sitges Film Festival.

“Yeah, unfortunately it is no longer going to happen,” he says. “I was really enthused to do it. I’m a fan of John Boorman’s movie and it was my intention to get it going after Jack The Giant Killer was completed. The project was with Warner Bros and what happened is that another King Arthur project was brought to them during that time. Basically, it was just more ready to go into production than ours was. That is why our version of Excalibur ended up being negated. But, when that happened, it allowed me to go straight into developing Battlestar Galactica – which I think will be really exciting.”

So he’s back working on the big-screen reboot of “Galactica”? Yup, the one that has nothing to do with the old Lorne Greene series or the very popular SyFy remake. I’m guessing that won’t go down too well with fans?
