It seems that the Byran Singer directed re-make of John Boorman’s Excalibur won’t move forward. The project has been dropped as another King Arthur project, also named Excalibur, was ready to move forward before Singer could get to work on his, so his got dropped.
The other Excalibur? Directed by Guy Ritchie. Okay, that’s kind of neat. And written my WARREN holy-mother-fuckin’-cool ELLIS. I’m trippin’ balls on this.
And while I would very interested in seeing Singer re-make Boorman, I’m more interested in seeing him re-make Larson.
See, apparently dropping Excalibur means that the next project on Singer’s menu is a “re-imagining” of Battlestar Galactica. Not a remake of the recent series, but a remake of the original from 1978. Very cool. I’m assuming this is going in a totally different direction than the Ronald Moore production. It better.
Unless Singer wants to re-do the finale, because I’d be all for that.
