“I just heard about the first Battlestar movie being greenlit,” Grace Park tells the Los Angeles Times in a story dated June 28. “It's supposed to start in August.”
The August start assumes that the Screen Actors Guild is not on strike at the time. The guild’s contract with the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers expires Monday.
The movie is widely expected to be, like last year’s “Razor” TV-movie, set before the events of next year’s “Battlestar Galactica” series finale. Many expect the movie could air on SciFi this autumn, before the next year's final 11 hours of the regular series.
As many as three new “Galactica” movies have reportedly been discussed.
Principal photography on the series finale, hitting the SciFi Channel next year, was expected to be completed before the SAG contract expires.
“There's one episode where everything is explained and I had to read it three times,” Park told the Times. “I had to sit down with [executive producer] Ron Moore and he had to break it down.”
Park apparently let the news slip while promoting her role in another cable series, “The Cleaner,” which premieres July 15.
