Stargate

The Stargate franchise is ready for a return to the big screen with the announcement of a new re-imagining that’s being planned as a trilogy.

MGM and Warner Brothers have reached a deal with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin for the reboot, with Emmerich directing and Devlin producing. The duo was also behind the 1994 original Stargate, which starred Kurt Russell and James Spader, in the same roles.

In a joint statement, Emmerich and Devlin said of the news:

“The ‘Stargate’ universe is one that we missed terribly, and we cannot wait to get going on imagining new adventures and situations for the trilogy. This story is very close to our hearts, and getting the chance to revisit this world is in many ways like a long lost child that has found its way back home,”

Emmerich is very busy right now, currently shooting a movie titled Stonewall while also in pre-production on the planned two-part Independence Day sequel, ID Forever, which will be filmed back-to-back. It’s assumed that Stargate will come after those projects are all wrapped up, so it’s likely still off in the distance a bit.
