Variety says Battlestar Galactica main man Ronald D Moore has signed a deal to make a big-screen science fiction trilogy. Produced by Tom Cruise’s United Artists, the project is shrouded in secrecy, and will give Moore something to do when Galactica’s four-year journey ends.
A remake of Joe Dante’s 1978 Jaws spoof Piranha, directed by French helmer Alexandre Aja (Switchblade Romance), is to be made in 3D, according to SCI FI Wire . It’s set to be the first ever R-rated live-action 3D movie, and Aja’s promised it’ll push the boundaries of screen gore. “We are ready to break all the records of blood used,” he said.
SCI FI Now also features some spoilers about Lost, which is about to return to US TV after a strike-induced hiatus. Executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have been yakking about what’s in store, with revelations about the Oceanic Six, love triangles and tensions between Jack and Locke.
