So yeah, instead of building on the phenomenal first movie, Dean Devlin has gone on record stating that they’re full on remaking Stargate. Not doing a sequel, not fleshing out the years of TV shows but rebooting another movie. So sayeth the man:
The Stargate thing is a different story. We did the original Stargateas an independent movie. It was a surprise success. Shortly before the movie came out, the financiers who were frightened the movie might not do well sold the film to MGM. When the film came out, it was a hit and spawned TV shows.
Of all the projects I’ve ever done, Stargate is the only one from the beginning intended to be a trilogy. We always wanted to do parts two and three, but the thinking was they didn’t want to do anything other than the TV series. So literally for 20 years I’ve been chasing this project. Twenty years later, we can’t really do part two. We have to start over from the beginning. So let’s reboot the series, put in all the things we couldn’t the first time, and set it up properly.
I’m pissed, I really wanted to see them do a proper sequel with today’s tech but no can’t do that, everything has to be a damn remake.
