Re: Stargate to receive movie reboot, trilogy planned

This from Gateworld:

A source told GateWorld that, while preliminary conversations are taking place between the producers and the studio, the project is not yet in development. The director’s comments indicate that the next step in the process is to hire a screenwriter. Any official production commitment from the studio would likely require at least a completed script that all parties are happy with.

Re: Stargate to receive movie reboot, trilogy planned

IMO, Devlin and Emmerich kept trotting this out every once and a while during the runs of the various Stargate TV series in an attempt to draw attention from them and/or try to de-legitimize them in the eyes of fans of the original movie. Now, it's possible that they're just a bit delusional.

First off, I don't think the Stargate movie was better than SGU but that's because I think SGU was the best of the entire franchise. Second, your position that you would rather see a franchise die to cling to your aging memories of them rather than see them continue in a rebooted mode just makes you nostalgic fanboy rather than someone who really has the best interest of a franchise at heart. Stargate is fast fading from public memory and Star Trek was also gradually slipping from public consciousness before the reboot sparked renewed interest.

I'd rather a franchise survive and grow than die because I may feel some angst about all my "accepted fantasy related" beliefs might be threatened or re-imagined. In fact, I find it odd that so many aging fans probably share such a childish reaction. But that's just me.

Re: Stargate to receive movie reboot, trilogy planned

For a movie reboot, let's hope it is a good script, so there could be a trilogy with box office success.

Re: Stargate to receive movie reboot, trilogy planned

I would rather see the TV version of the Stargate universe revived and continued. Not because I have any intrinsic objection to reboots, but because it's a very rich and broad universe and there's plenty of room for continuation or expansion. I'd still like to see a sequel series set after knowledge of the Stargates has become public, and explore how that affects human society.

I'm attached to the lore and the characters, not the brand name. I couldn't care less about the health of the franchise if all it offers up is a reboot.

Re: Stargate to receive movie reboot, trilogy planned

Given that all the costumes, props and set pieces have been sold at auctions, revisiting Stargate would essentially mean rebuilding from scratch. Sure that doesn't require them to reboot, but it could be a convincing enough argument to reboot all the same.

Re: Stargate to receive movie reboot, trilogy planned

Again, I've got nothing against reboots in principle. But if I were an MGM executive, I'd look at how much money Wright & Cooper's version of Stargate had made my company vs. how much money Devlin & Emmerich's version had made my company, so if I wanted someone to start up the franchise again, I'd call Wright first.

I would tell that executive how stupid that way of thinking is.
Comparing the money gained by 20 TV show seasons and 2 TV films to the money gained by 1 feature film.

Well, comparing it to Star Trek, I despise the star trek reboot. I also consider the reboot's existence more harmful to the franchise than if the franchise had just stayed dead, because now we'll almost certainly not get a real movie/series and instead get just this watered down action junk with the ST name for the forseeable future. Staying dead is a better alternative than a bunch of junk being released under a franchise's name. Because of that, I definately don't support a Stargate reboot, especially not in movie form and completely unrelated to SG-1. Best case scenario, its an good movie. Worst case, its terrible but sells well (like Transformers and JJTrek) and we get a continuing series of horrible stuff. What would actually happen if it gets made is probably somewhere in the middle of those two scenarios, but after star trek I can't support a reboot of anything, especially not of a sci fi series I really enjoy.

Looking at the ratings, which steadily declined during the last five years or so Wright was in charge of the franchise, I don't know if he'd be a prime candidate for the job. I mean, Rick Berman made Paramount a lot of money running Star Trek for 18 years, but the studio isn't going to put him in charge of the franchise now, either, because it also suffered from diminishing returns by the end of his tenure.

Re: Stargate to receive movie reboot, trilogy planned

I might have the cast of the original movie, meet the cast of the series--an alternate universe type deal, with the explanation that one team's meambers had the same names, but not the same genetic code. Someone was trying to fix a timeline. If one party found the other dead, it might make for an awkward moment.

I always had this fantasy of a Jurrasic Park for actors. Vincent Price's clone would only be allowed to be adopted by persons in a certain place, and the clone reared well away from distractions.

So you have nice dead ringers adopted by movie fans, but it all becomes rather dark at the last.

That might work between the two casts of the Stargate film and series in some manner--were I to helm the picture...

SG1 was the highest rated show on Sci-Fi until Atlantis started up and season eight of SG1 was their highest rated season on Sci-Fi. Wright and Cooper left Atlantis for two seasons to develop Stargate Universe and it was Cooper who left during season two of Universe.

All information I am aware of, and nothing that contradicts my point.
