As we reported last July (here) Roland Emmerich is set to reboot his own Stargate movie so he can bring it to the screen as the trilogy he has originally envisioned all those years ago (1994).
Now THR is reporting that James A Woods and Nicolas Wright will be penning the screenplay. The duo are pretty much unknown but they are currently penning Independence Day 2, also with Emmerich.
It is expected that this new trilogy will not have any ties to the movie or numerous TV series that came after, instead telling the story from the start again – it could, however, be assumed that they WILL contain elements from the first movie, co-written by Emmerich and Dean Devlin, and starring Kurt Russel and James Spader.
We aren’t sure what to make of this, but, like the Ghostbusters fans, we imagine this may make some people unhappy.
