‘Battlestar Galactica’ Movie Adds Michael De Luca, Scott Stuber as Producers

Universal has brought on “Fifty Shades of Grey” producer Michael De Luca along with Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark for its movie version of the sci-fi franchise “Battlestar Galactica.”

De Luca finalized a three-year first-look deal to produce movies for Universal Pictures last year and is producing the next two “Fifty Shades of Grey” films. Stuber and Clark operate through Bluegrass Films, based at Universal.

Variety reported in April 2014 that original series creator Glen Larson was on board to produce the “Battlestar Galactica” film at Universal with “Transcendence” writer Jack Paglen on board. Larson died later that year.

There have been four “Galactica” TV series (including the brief “Galactica 1980” and, more recently, “Caprica”). The first, starring Lorne Greene and Richard Hatch, ran during the 1978-79 season and was centered on humans engaged in a lengthy war against a cybernetic race known as the Cylons while searching for Earth.

In 2003, a reimagined “Battlestar Galactica” miniseries aired on Syfy followed by a four-season series, starring Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell.

Stuber’s credits include the “Ted” movies. Clark’s credits include “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”

De Luca’s credits include “Moneyball,” “The Social Network” and “Captain Phillips.”

The news was first reported by the Tracking Board.
