stargate300x150 As early as 2011 and again in 2012 we wrote about rumors in Hollywood surrounding a revisit to the Stargate universe on the big screen from the original film’s writer and producer Dean Devlin.

Now, two years later since our last outing on the subject we can report that it is a done deal. Dean Devlin will again produce and Roland Emmerich, who directed and co-wrote the original feature is returning to helm the project.

This time MGM and Warner Bros. have opted for a Stargate trilogy. There is no word yet on storyline, cast of characters, or if Kurt Russell and James Spader will be returning to their original roles. Currently it is way too early in the project for those kind of specifics so stay tuned here at Slice for updates.

    I love Stargate but this sucks! SG-1, Atlantis and Universe were great shows and I have read that Emmrich hated it. If we could expand on the universe that was created or bring closure to Stargate Universe (what was the signal coming from the center of the Universe?).

    It used to be you’d get a deal for one movie. Now we’re seeing triologies being signed even before the first one is made. On one hand I can appreciate companies taking a long-term view. On the other since movies are so expensive studios aren’t going to take chance with original content. Just do one movie and make it complete then if it’s a success, make your trilogy.

    Sometimes I think the only reason why we have trilogies is that the English language doesn’t have a good word for quadogies.

    • quadrilogy (or quartet), tetralogy (or quintet)… ever since the epic multi-book fantasy series started becoming crazy popular, the words fell closer to the mainstream :)

      And no, I have no idea what the word for the Wheel of Time or Song of Ice and Fire would be. Nor Dresden Files, nor Repairman Jack (17 in the main series). We’re going to need a bigger word…
