It seems that a beloved sci-fi series might make its way to the silver screen after its television run. IGN is reporting that a Battlestar Galactica film is being developed.

The site is also reporting, however, that the film will be based on the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica series and not the popular Sci Fi channel reincarnation that is finishing its TV run up this year. Original series creator Glen R. Larson is set to write the script and produce the film.
