Writer and producer Dean Devlin says that now that Stargate franchise has wound down on TV, he’s still interested in pursuing sequels to the original movie.
Devlin tells Gateworld that the movies were originally envisioned as a trilogy. But when the film spun-off into the television series, it was decided to not pursue movie sequels.
“We actually wrote it as a trilogy of movies, but we were never able to do parts two and three,” Devlin said. “So our hope is, now that the series is starting to wind down, that maybe it will be time to actually get to do parts two and three. We’re still hopeful that we’ll get to come back and tell the rest of that story.”
Devlin says the storyline for the movies could exist along since what we’ve seen on TV and be a parallel story that wouldn’t necessarily contradict the shows.
“I think it’ll change a little bit from our original idea since so many years have passed,” he said. “We wanted to explore the idea of how the Stargates were built originally, and where else in the universe they exist, and why they exist — and where else they exist on Earth. We had really planned out, as a trilogy of films, to allow this mythology to grow bigger and bigger.”
