Details are starting to come out about the proposed BSG movies. According to Galactica Sitrep the first of three (?) planned movies will likely include Dean Stockwell (Cylon Brother Cavill), Michael Trucco (Final Five Cylon Anders), Aaron Douglas (Final Five Cylon Chief Tyrol), Grace Park (Cylon Boomer/Athena), Michael Hogan (Final Five Cylon Col. Tighe) and Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck/”The Harbinger of Death”). The composition of this cast suggests we may be in for some Cylon skinjob backstories in this movie. I’m game.
Jane Espenson (Firefly and BSG writer/producer) will write the script and Edward James Olmos will direct. According to io9, Espenson is an excellent choice since she seems to have a knack for writing episodes showing insights into the Cylon perspective, while Olmos has directed some of the more lackluster episodes.
