NEWS: GALACTICA DVD movie planned

GEEK MONTHLY reports that a direct-to-DVD movie is in the work based on BATTLESTAR GALACTICA:

Despite declining ratings for BATTLESTAR GALACTICA on SciFi Channel, nearly universal critical acclaim along with robust DVD sales have led Universal Home Video to consider greenlighting a BATTLESTAR GALACTICA direct-to-video telefilm, which will presumably air on The SciFi Channel, after debuting on home video, sources tell GEEK. If it goes forward, the two hour telefilm will shoot in March during the series hiatus and prior to the commencement of production on the series fourth season in June. While there is no story for the telefilm at present, plans are afoot to come up with a screenplay that doesn’t step on existing continuity for the series, but utilizes most of its existing sets. There is also speculation the telefilm will somehow tie into the mythology for the GALACTICA spin-off series, CAPRICA, which has not been officially greenlit by SciFi Channel.
