Director Bryan Singer has an impressive resumé from The Usual Suspects through to the very good X-Men movies and the very bad Superman Returns. But there’s one thing Singer is even better at: not making movies. Since the dawn of the last decade Singer has attached himself – often with great fanfare – to numerous high profile properties only to steer those properties straight into the abyss of development hell. Singer, however, always manages to leap, barnacle-like (or elderly Harrison Ford-like), from one sinking host to another. Just yesterday Singer’s planned remake of 1981’s Excalibur was unceremoniously sheathed but the director was already singing a new, familiar tune, announcing his intention to instead film a big-screen version of Battlestar Galactica that, for no apparent reason, would entirely dismiss the wildly beloved television version that only recently ended. This is not only a terrible idea, it will clearly never happen — a fact that won’t be confirmed until mid 2013 at which point Singer should be free to discuss a deep-seated desire to “reboot” the doomed Green Lantern franchise or perhaps mount a nine-figure “re-imagining” of D.A.R.Y.L. starring a real robot boy who hasn’t been invented yet. And so the question must be asked: is Bryan Singer a perfectionist? Or is he work-averse?
