The new big screen reboot of the long-running franchise has been in the pipeline for a number of years, and it seems they've brought on board someone with just a bit of sci-fi experience.
Speaking of joining Battlestar Galactica, Kinberg said (via The Hollywood Reporter): "Battlestar Galactica is one of the holy grails in science fiction, and I couldn't be more excited about bringing something new to the franchise, while honoring what's made it so iconic and enduring.
"I'm so grateful that [producer] Dylan [Clark] and my partners at Universal have trusted me with this incredible universe."

Galactica first launched in the late 1970s with a short-lived TV series, and later found a new lease of life in the 21st century with a relaunched show, which ran between 2004 and 2009 and received critical acclaim.
Alongside the film, Galactica is set to get a new TV series reboot on Peacock courtesy of Mr Robot's Sam Esmail, which will "explore a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar".
