and their going to try for a trilogy again?  maybe they can bring in The Rock.

So here we are, nearly twenty years later, talking about STARGATE once more.  Surreal an unnerving in many regards, but also strangely comforting.  Seems Roland Emmerich (is Dean Devlin along for this ride?) is entering into discussions about rebooting STARGATE as a film franchise - three films from the sound of it.  Emmerich is very clear to state that this is not a continuation of of his feature film, whose universe was largely re-cast and beaten into the ground (my wording, not his) by televisionís STARGATE SG-1 and its numerous spin-offs.  Indeed, this sounds like a full-on restart. 

Whatís interesting to me about this - other than I think thereís vast and unexplored potential in the STARGATE mythos even as itís currently defined - is that Emmerich has stated all along that heíd originally hope to develop three films from the STARGATE concept he and Devlin launched back in the early 90s.  If memory serves (I believe this is more or less correct - but itís been a while, so allow a margin for error), E&Dís original intent was to more or less continue addressing the threat posed by the super-race we saw pulling the strings in the first film...but on worlds featuring extremely different environments, each presenting very different and unique threats.

Will Emmerich & Co. revisit this notion for these new pictures, or will time and re-think take The Powers That Be in very different directions - given that the TV seriese mayíve already stolen a bit of thunder in this regard? Although...most of the alien worlds on those shows looked suspiciously like Canada, so Emmerich may have some room to breathe...

I dunno. I can't see a Stargate without Richard Dean Anderson thanks to the TV show. And he's just a little old to be reprising his part.

I loved the first movie, but I was never really able to get into the TV show, so I was disappointed that there was no followup to the first movie.

I never thought the original movie was all that good to begin with, and I never watched the TV shows.   paranoid

The only tv series I watched was SG: Universe. It started out pretty shaky but was starting to get good when they canceled it. Don't think I ever saw the movie, so I just added it to my netflix queue.

Loved the original movie - Its the only one I'®ve ever been to a danish cinema in which the audience spontaneously clapped (At the saluting in the end).

Yep. Well, maybe not Universe. Everything I seen of that was pretty bad.
