MICHAEL TRUCCO (who played Samuel Anders) on what to expect from ‘THE PLAN’:
“It doesn’t extend the story beyond what we saw in the finale. It actually picks up the story between season one and season two. It’s actually prequel to the entrance of Anders, my character, and Cavil, Dean Stockwell’s character. The movie is told from that perspective.”
On whether his character might show up in the prequel series ‘CAPRICA’:
“The Cylons, once we saw them in Battlestar, we realized, ‘Oh, they’ve been around for a long time.’ So it’s certainly possible, and it would be kind of cool.”
On whether or not BATTLESTAR GALACTICA might return as a series, mini-series, or in another movie:
“Ron [Moore] was pretty adamant about not resurrecting the series…
…he said this was the end of the show.”

The Cast of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
Directed by EDWARD JAMES OLMOS, ‘BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE PLAN’ will air on the Sci Fi channel sometime in November 2009 and stars; Edward James Olmos, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Callum Keith Rennie, Dean Stockwell, Michael Trucco, Kate Vernon, Aaron Douglas, and Michael Hogan.
IMDB does not list Mary McDonnell (President Laura Roslin), Jamie Bamber (Captain Lee ‘Apollo’ Adama), James Callis (Dr. Gaius Baltar), or Katee Sackhoff (Captain Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace) as being involved in this movie and that might be most weird in the case of Thrace who ran across Anders in the first place. Then again, the series finale covered some fairly detailed back-story on the above characters so the absence is understandable since there’s always a lot of ground covered in Moore’s stories.
