I read this over at Dark Horizons, that Universal may be considering a Direct-To-Video movie for BSG.  They quoted a story over at Geek Montly.

Follow the DIRECT LINK for the full story.

Direct to DVD? :P

I want THEATRICAL RELEASE!

Why direct to DVD? That's little better than a TV movie or miniseries. We've had that.

GIVE US THEATRICAL RELEASE!

Someone ease my fears, because that article said that BSG is experiencing a ratings drop and Sci-fi hasn't committed to Season 4. If BSG gets axed...well, let's not even go there. :mad:

I hope they don't make any movie and just keep going on with the series.

Glen Larsen holds all rights to do Galactica movies.  He's not a fan of the new series so a theatrical release won't happen.

This doesn't look like a good sign, after all look what happened to Stargate.... Direct to DVD movies after the show was canceled.

Stargate had been talking about a direct to DVD movie for the last 4 seasons. There was supposed to be one after series 7 ended. Let's not start sounding the death knell for BSG on one tiny piece of data.

The threat of a direct to DVD movie is a tactic frequently used by sci-fi shows during contract negotiations. It's a way of pointing out to the TV channels that they don't need them and can make money out of their IP without them.

I think this is great, any new BSG I welcome. :) I was especially interested in those parts of the column mentioning the revival of Firefly, that'd be cool! :D When they were mentioning Babylon 5 there were they talking about the films that were already made or a totally new B5 film? The end part seemed to suggest a new film.

There is a new B5 film for a direct to DVD release already in filming.

Sci Fi did not commit to seasons 2 and 3 until well into the second half of the preceding seasons.  This is typical.

We're extremely lucky to have any Battlestar Galactica whatsoever.

People would rather watch cliche "reality" tosh than a gripping sci-fi epic drama - because most people are generally idiots.

i'm just guessing here but if they are working on a galactica dvd to tv movie, i think it's probably going to be Caprica....that's just my guess though.
