A post shared by Simon Kinberg (@simondavidkinberg) on reports screenwriter Simon Kinberg will be taking over which had screenwriter Lisa Joy and directors Francis Lawrence and Bryan Singer attached.

Simon spent years on the ‘X-Men’ franchise and has also worked on films such as ‘The Martian’ and ‘Sherlock Holmes’.

Now, Simon Kinberg is looking forward to the project, he said:

‘Battlestar Galactica’ is one of the holy grails in science fiction, and I couldn’t be more excited about bringing something new to the franchise while honoring what’s made it so iconic and enduring.

I’m so grateful that Dylan and my partners at Universal have trusted me with the incredible universe.

‘Battlestar Galactica’ was created by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick and first aired as a television series in 1978, before being successfully rebooted in the 2000s. The franchise has also spawned comic books, novels, board games, and video games.

Simon still has an interest in working on more X-Men films in the future.

He said:

I mean, I love the ‘X-Men’. They were my favorite comic growing up … for a lot of reasons, wanting to fit in growing up and being a bit of an outcast as a young teen, ‘X-Men’ really spoke to me. I’ve obviously dedicated a lot of my life, between ‘X-Men’ movies and ‘Logan’ and the ‘Deadpool’ films. I’ve dedicated a whole lot of my life to it and could imagine doing it in a fresh new way. That would be exciting.
