Top Cow Prods. and Arclight Films have picked up Michael Rymer to direct Witchblade. The helmer has directed twenty episodes of Battlestar Galactica and will remain behind the camera for the show's series finale. Rymer also recently wrapped production on Revolution, a two-hour series pilot for NBC and the Sci Fi Channel.
