Dean Devlin developing STARGATE sequel

Dean Devlin, the co-writer and producer of the original STARGATE, has a production deal with MGM to develop a sequel that will pick up the story from the 1994 film.

Devlin spoke to Sci Fi Wire, saying, "We would just continue the mythology of the movie and finish that out. I think the series could still live at the end of the third sequel. So we're going to try to not tread on their stories."

"When we created the original Stargate, we always envisioned it as a trilogy, and, unfortunately, the way in which the movie got made, we didn't really have control over [it]," Devlin added. "I think it will be very exciting to actually get to go do parts two and three."

Roland Emmerich will have the opportunity to direct the film if he wants, and Devlin said both Russell and Spader seem interested in coming back.

I don't know, ponyboy. I loved the movie and have never liked the TV series (or spinoffs). I have always thought Russell *was* O'Neil and that MacGyver was just a bad replacement. And that No-Name-Guy is nothing compared to Spader.

I don't know about this. The TV series was one of the few that built on an existing movie mythos instead of re-imagining it all together. in my mind the 10 years of Stargate: SG1 is the sequel...hmmmmm

I never watched the series and only caught the movie once. They have every right to make a sequel--they originated it. I understand the series was mostly made by Canadians.

I'm actually torn on this. Loved the movie and the show. But the show takes place RIGHT at the end of the movie. How can you put two more movies in there?!?! And although I'd love to see Russell and Spader reprise their roles the actors of the show have made the characters their own. I'll still see the movies though.

Sithangel, Love the Lumley referance. Spiderkeg, What could possibly be marketing for the third series a Stargate: Special Task Force?

I've never been a big fan of the Stargate Series (It's Richard Dean Anderson's fault), but man if I didn't love the movie. Yes!!!! They need to sign up everyone especially Roland Emmerich, Spader and Kurt 'My name is Snake Pligskin and I kick A**' Russel, and make this PRONTO!

Kurt brought the more kick butt, action hero torn military man, while Anderson brought the more cynical, and pithy military man who is just along for the ride.

Might be a little more difficult with Spader, he has matured, and got a little heavier from a those sessions with his pal on the balcony at Boston Legal.

I saw the movie way back when found nothing nothing special or versatile about Stargate. If you like it, that's cool. I just happen to not to. So, don't get offended.

Yeah Dean did really hump the pooch with that craptacular installment in the Godzilla movie world. It was just so limp! I mean a Godzilla thats maybe 20 stories tall, NO F****IN' WAY! He's the king of monsters he should be as he was over in Japan 50 plus stories tall. And that whinny reporter should have been trampled by the big G.
