Galactica’s Moore & Tom Cruise Team

United Artists has signed Ronald D. Moore to create and write an original sci-fi trilogy for the big screen says Reuters.

Moore co-created, pens and serves as executive producer of the Sci Fi Channel’s highly acclaimed “Battlestar Galactica” currently in its fourth season.

He also served in similar capacities on such shows as “Carnivale,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Roswell”.

Moore previously worked with UA’s Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner on “Mission: Impossible II” on which he scored a story credit. He’s also co-written the films “Star Trek: First Contact” and “Star Trek: Generations”.

“Over the last decade, Ron has emerged as the foremost sci-fi, fantasy creator, writer in the industry and working with him to bring his creative talents to the big screen is a great partnership for our studio” says Wagner.
