There’s Going To Be A New STARGATE Movie, But Not Necessarily The One You Want

Now here’s some monkey’s paw shit for you. The Stargate TV franchise went off the air two years and immediately fans started demanding more of it, with many hoping for a new theatrical film (like Buffy, the original film the series spun-off from is largely ignored). It appears that a new Stargate trilogy is now in development but it will be a rebooted take on the 1994 movie and will have no connection whatsoever to the TV franchise.

Roland Emmerich, who directed and co-wrote the original film is heading up this new take, but won’t be writing it.

“We went to MGM, who has the rights, and proposed to them to do a sequel, but as a reboot… and reboot it as a movie and then do three parts. Pretty soon we’ll have to look for a writer and start.”

As to why it’s not in the same continuity as the TV series, Emmerich has never exactly been quiet about his belief that SG-1 isn’t what he considers to a be a canon continuation of his film. Perhaps this is his chance to tell the story he wanted to tell back in the 90s.

Skott Stotland is a thousand monkeys in a man suit. He has been writing for the internet for over a decade.
