I would have loved to see a sequel to the film that ignored the TV show and brought back Kurt Russell and James Spader.
If the Bill McCay novels are anything to go by (since they were supposedly based of Dean Devlin's notes on the Stargate sequels), it may be better that we didn't, because there were some pretty nonsensical things that put the shows to shame (like humanity reverse engineering alien tech at XCOM speed levels).

That said, there are some ideas from those books that I wouldn't mind seeing used in a Stargate reboot, like Earth setting up a base on Abydos and mining naquadah there, along with enemy politics.
