Jul 01, 2001 | 8:26am EDT

Studios USA has received its battle orders from Fox: produce a two-hour Battlestar Galactica movie based on the popular 1970s series, with a possible series to follow. The Hollywood Reporter asserts that Bryan Singer (X-Men, The Usual Suspects) will direct the TV movie, and then stay on to executive produce the series, which is slated to begin in the fall of 2002. The new series is expected to be set just subsequent to where the original series (1978-1980) left off, somewhere in the seventh millennium.
