Roland Emmerich is planning a Stargate reboot

September 9th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments


In an interview with Digital Spy, director Roland Emmerich says that he’s planning a reboot to the feature film Stargate as a trilogy:

“We went to MGM, who has the rights, and proposed to them to do a sequel, but as a reboot… and reboot it as a movie and then do three parts. Pretty soon we’ll have to look for a writer and start.”

Emmerich co-wrote and directed the original 1994 film, which starred Kurt Russell and James Spader. Though he originally planned the first film as a trilogy, he says he decided on a reboot instead since:

“The actors look totally different… it would not work.”

When it came out Stargate grossed nearly $200 million at the global box office.Four television spin-offs were later made from the series.

So what do you think of a Stargate reboot?
