Park: BSG movie is a go

  • 27comments

The Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica may currently be shooting the series' final episodes, but that doesn't mean the sci-fi hit is done for good.

In May, The Chicago Tribune unleashed a tidbit of information that made BSG fans' heads spin--there was talk behind the scenes of making up to three made-for-television movies set in the Battlestar universe. The series already had success with a pair of telefilms: the two-hour pilot and Razor, so the idea wasn't completely alien. A follow-up by The Tribune in June reported that at least one of the new movies was "looking likely."

The latest on the prospects of a BSG movie comes straight from the mouth of Grace Park, who plays Sharon in the series. Speaking with The Los Angeles Times, Park said, "I just heard about the first Battlestar movie being greenlit. A TV movie, but still!"

Apparently the news is so fresh that none of the cast's managers or agents have been contacted. Production is currently scheduled to begin in August.

As for those still reeling from the series' midseason finale, be prepared for some more mind blowing when Battlestar wraps in 2009. According to Park, "There's one episode where everything is explained and I had to read it three times," Park told the paper. "I had to sit down with [series creator] Ron Moore and he had to break it down."

The second half of Battlestar Galactica's final season is expected to air sometime early next year.
