Entertainment Weekly is confirming a story—first reported by HitFix's Drew McWeeny (and passed on by SCI FI Wire yesterday)—that Bryan Singer will produce and direct a new film version of Battlestar Galactica for Universal Pictures.

Here's how the magazine somewhat condescendingly reports the news without giving credit where it's due:

Universal Pictures has confirmed blog speculation that Bryan Singer, director of Valkyrie, will take on directing and producing duties for a BSG movie. Glen Larson, who created original series back in 1978, will produce as well. The film is not expected to be a continuation of current popular television show that's running on the Syfy network but will be a complete re-imagining of the sci-fi lore that was invented by Larson back in the '70s.

Other inaccuracies in the story: Battlestar, as we know, has completed its run on Syfy, though The Plan is still to come, as is Caprica.
