It’s everything you could ever want in a classic beach movie: Surfing, babes, music, aliens, exploding people… wait, what?
Syfy announced Wednesday that the remaining five episodes of the “Battlestar Galactica” prequel are being lifted from the schedule next week and being rescheduled to air in early 2011.
It is pretty widely known that Eric Stoltz, (Caprica) was originally cast as Marty McFly in the ‘Back To The Future’ Trilogy. What a lot of people don’t know is that they actually did 5 weeks of filming before switching to Michael J. Fox.
Syfy’s Executive VP of Development Mark Stern revealed that the network was interested in expanding its Galactica franchise by possibly developing a second Galactica spinoff.
The name change also includes a new partnership with Acclaim for a SyFy game division. The deal is to develop two games a year that Syfy will have the option to develop into TV shows
Originally, Caprica was set to be a TV Movie, but it has now been greenlit for a full series. Hopefully it will be more exciting than the current Sci Fi showcase, Sanctuary.
