Today, Variety announced that Simon Kinberg will write and produce a rebooted Battlestar Galactica film. Kinberg recently wrote and directed Dark Phoniex for 20th Century Fox.

I’m so grateful that Dylan and my partners at Universal have trusted me with this incredible universe.” – Simon Kinberg added in a statement
