Whither Stargate?

I may have missed another thread on it, but if not, I'm interested if not somewhat surprised at the relative lack of vigor in discussing the MGM Stargate announcement around the turn of the month. One thread, giving out after 4 or 5 days, with a pretty squalid number of posts?

Aside from speculation and/or hopes for specifics on how the films' continuity will play out, one might also expect a greater sampling of the sturm und drang clamor and disgruntlement about it being absolutely the final coffin nail in any potential for a lifeline for all the series, blah blah blah,etc., ad infinitum.... that I've seen in other venues.

Thoughts on the apparent lack of enthusiasm for such discourse here?

Re: Whither Stargate?

So you created a thread to discuss the lack of discussion in the other thread?

It seems the Stargate and ID4 sequels are things that they keep saying Emmerich will do at some point but for some reason they continue to be stuck in development hell.

Re: Whither Stargate?

It takes time to get things rolling on a movie. This new Stargate was only announced a month ago, so there isn't really anything too shocking about the silence. If we still haven't heard anything else this time next year, then I'll start to worry.

Re: Whither Stargate?

I remember enjoying the first Stargate movie when it first came out, but it was a concept that worked much better as a television series. After fifteen years of various series, I don't think I'm too keen on the idea of a new movie--I would much rather see a couple of follow up movies to SGU on a television scale.

Me, too. More of that, and not a compete remake of a movie that was only good because of James Spader (OK, and Kurt Russel, too).

Re: Whither Stargate?

I suspect interest might have picked up when more details are known about it, i.e cast etc...

Re: Whither Stargate?

What do you want us to talk about? I think speculation on a plot or cast or director is entirely premature. Anything is just speculation.

No, its not--this is the internet

I vote for Channing Tatem and Jonah Hill to star alongside Emma Watson.

I'm imagining Channing Tatum as Jack O'Neil and Jonah Hill as Daniel Jackson, and it strangely works. But if Emma Watson is Teal'c, who's Carter? And is it Samantha or Samuel Carter?

I would have been interested in a sequel to Stargate with Spader and Russell, or a continuation of the SG1/SGA continuity. But I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in a remake.
