SyFy Portal is reporting, but stressing the news should be viewed as rumor, that Sci Fi is close to renewing the critical hit Battlestar Galactica for a fourth season, possibly even before the switch to Sunday nights happens this January.

“Moving a show to Sunday nights might at first glance appear to be an act of desperation, but SciFi Channel is expected to officially give the greenlight to a fourth season of “Battlestar Galactica,” possibly even before the show makes its Sunday night debut on Jan. 21.

The site is also reporting that news isn’t so good for the proposed spinoff Caprica: “Anyone expecting to see ‘Caprica’ before 2008 is fooling themselves,” a SciFi Channel source told SyFy Portal. “There is still quite a bit to be worked out.”

The site also goes on to report that Sci Fi is not expected to grant a greenlight for the recent mini-series The Lost Room which aired at the end of December and averaged a 1.8 household rating over its three nights (1.9, 1.7, 1.7), well below previous mini-series by the network (3.0+ from Mini’s such as Battlestar Galactica and more recently The Triangle).

Battlestar Galactica averaged a 1.5 household rating during the first half of its third season. The show is down nearly 30% from the 2.0 it averaged over the first 10 episodes of season 2.

David Tennant (the 10th Dr. Who) to leave show December 29, 2006 9:47 pm

UPDATE:  There’s an update to this story. Tennant May Not Be Leaving Doctor Who Afterall

Original article follows below:

The Sun is reporting that David Tennant will be quitting his role as the Doctor on the hit BBC series, leaving those in charge looking for yet another replacement.

Tennant will reportedly leave the show during the middle of its fourth season. Possible replacements for the role include Robert Carlye (Trainspotting) and David Morrisey (Basic Instinct 2), both of whom share the Scottish background of Tennnt.

There has been no confirmation of the news, either by Tennant or those at BBC. If it does turn out to be true, it would make the third actor to be replaced on the series. The first Dr. Who (Christopher Eccleston) only lasted one season when he was replaced by Tennant and Billie Piper (who played the role of Rose Tyler: the Doctor’s sidekick) is being replaced by Freema Agyemen for the third season.

A “Battlestar Galactica” direct-to-video movie in the works? December 29, 2006 1:54 am

According Geek Monthly (an online and print entertainment site), they’ve been informed by sources that Universal Home Video is considering greenlighting a Battlestar Galactica direct-to-video film, which would air on Sci Fi Channel.

There is also speculation that the movie which would air before a potential fourth season of Battlestar Galactica would serve as a sort of bridge to the new Galactica-based series Caprica (which has set to be greenlit by Sci Fi).

The series has suffered from declined ratings losing a very large portion of its audience, but it remains a hit among critics and fans alike. It opened this season with a 1.8 household rating, but has fallen to a series low 1.3 household rating.

The third season is currently averaging a 1.5 household rating, down 25% from the 2.0 it averaged during season 2 and down 37.5% from the 2.4 it averaged during the series’ first season. The four-hour two part mini series back in December of 2003 averaged a 3.5 household rating.

IESB.net is reporting on their website that a second film in the newly re-established Superman franchise has now been given an official go. The site is claiming that Singer has reached an agreement with Warner Bros. on the sequel, which will apparently start to get underway next fall and feature more action.

There are however, some conditions, mainly with the budget. Unlike the high $208M budget + $50M for prints and advertising of ‘Returns’ (which also included all the failed projects), this movie will range somewhere around $140-$175 million + prints.

Brad Pitt in Mr. and Mrs. SmithRumors have surfaced on the net with regards to the fate of the Mission Impossible franchise now that Tom Cruise is no longer part of any plans. It turns out that one possible semi-replacement (the character of Ethan Hunt will not be replaced) to helm Mission Impossible IV is Brad Pitt (more recently of Mr. & Mrs. Smith fame).

The British tabloid The Daily Mail is reporting that Paramount is mulling over a decision to offer the lead role to Brad Pitt.

MI:IV will not include Cruise’s character, agent Ethan Hunt,” the Mail‘s source claims. “They’re considering a brief mention, saying Hunt retired to live a safe life with his new wife. … They’re set on Brad taking over as a gutsy new head operative who puts together his own unique team of specialists.”

UPDATE: A paramount source has told TrekMovie that the rumor is “total fiction”.
