Space-colony ambush survivors (Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict, Lorne Greene) head for unknown Earth, followed by the robot Cylons.
A remake of director John Boorman's 1981 take on the King Arthur Legend, Excalibur, has been in the works since 2009, with director Bryan Singer (X-Men, Superman Returns) attached to helm the project. Singer took a break from putting the finishing touches on his next directorial effort, Jack the Giant Killer, and spoke to SFX at the Sitges Film Festival, only to reveal that his Excalibur remake was no more.
Yeah, unfortunately it is no longer going to happen. I was really enthused to do it. I’m a fan of John Boorman’s movie and it was my intention to get it going after Jack The Giant Killer was completed. The project was with Warner Bros. and what happened is that another King Arthur project was brought to them during that time. Basically, it was just more ready to go into production than ours was. That is why our version of Excalibur ended up being negated. But, when that happened, it allowed me to go straight into developing Battlestar Galactica — which I think will be really exciting.
