Bryan Singer is best known for the X-Men movies
Bryan Singer will direct and produce a film version of the TV series Battlestar Galactica, reports say.
Trade magazine Variety claims he has signed up to make the science fiction movie, despite unconfirmed reports that he was linked to another X-Men film.
Battlestar Galactica started as a TV mini series in the US in 1978 and the pilot was subsequently shown in UK cinemas.
It was revived in 2003 in a new version starring Edward James Olmos.
Meanwhile, Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote Singer's 1994 movie The Usual Suspects, has signed up to write a Wolverine sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Australian actor Hugh Jackman is expected to return as the Marvel Comics character and will also co-produce the film.
The studio commissioned a sequel after the first movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, made $363m (£217m) worldwide.
