Battlestar Galactica movie will have sexy cylons

When the Sci Fi Channel announced that Battlestar Galactica would conclude its series run after 10 more episodes, fans of the series wept like little babies. But their sorrowful secretions were momentarily slowed when news broke that the space opera would be coming back--in telefilm form.

The Battlestar Galactica stand-alone movie is set to air sometime in 2009 after the series' final episode, Sci Fi said last month. The film will follow a pair of Cylon agents who are dealing with the small amount of humans who escaped the bombastic attack on Caprica.

Edward James Olmos, who plays rough and gruff Bill Adama, will direct the two-hour event, and Michael Trucco (Sam Anders), Aaron Douglas (Chief Galen Tyrol), and Dean Stockwell (Brother Cavil) are set to star. That sounds pretty cool...wait! Where are the lovely ladies of Battlestar?

Those who feared there would be no estrogen--albeit artificial--among the robotic ranks, fear not. Though Sci Fi Channel didn't say that Grace Park and Tricia Helfer (Boomer and Number Six, respectively) would be in the movie, The Chicago Tribune does.

Citing the ever-present "source close to the production" (that guy is everywhere!), the newspaper says Park and Helfer will be in the telefilm, likely playing multiple Cylons within their model, as will other "toasters" Rick Worthy, Matthew Bennett, and Callum Keith Rennie. However, Michael Hogan, who plays Saul Tigh, won't be in the film extensively. Bummer, he rocks.

Regardless of the rumors that have spread across the Web that the second half of Battlestar Galactica will return in April, Sci Fi Channel still expects to get things going in January.

Are you as psyched for the Battlestar movie as we are?

Good, so far Battlestar G. is a classic in the making, and the side projects hold up to be good viewing as well. If this movie can tide us until Caprica airs, more BSG for me please, especially the sexy cylons.

Sexy cylons are always good. Park is not so sexy, though, kinda boyish looking.

I knew it. Just as I get hooked on a TV-series they close it down. It happens all the time. Hmm, must bring bad luck...

Sweet. I assume we'll also find out who the final Cylon is and it'll be in the movie too. So hopefully by the end this movie still has some bite. Same with Caprica, which looks awesome.

BSG is one of the most overrated shows out there, so I don't care for a movie anyway. But pretty cool for the fans I guess.

To clarify, the series wasn't cancelled as bermyblue states. It is simply ending, as the creators envisioned it would.
