Finally! #Stargate coming back to life with film trilogy reboot! | Blastr


Finally! Stargate coming back to life with film trilogy reboot!

Trent Moore Thursday, September 5, 2013 – 4:14pm

A whole lot of sci-fi fans have been bummed ever since the most recent Stargate series, Universe, went off the air a few years ago. Well, we have some good news: The franchise is coming back to the big screen.

But it won’t be a continuation of Stargate SG-1, Atlantis or Universe. Heck, it won’t even be connected to the original 1994 film that started it all. Get ready for a reboot.

Director Roland Emmerich has revealed that he is prepping a trilogy of new Stargate films meant to reboot the franchise. Originally Emmerich had envisioned Stargate as the first part of a trilogy — but MGM opted to make Stargate SG-1 instead, which ran for a decade and led to the two additional TV spinoffs.

Now that the franchise has been dormant a few years, Emmerich decided it was time to come back and give it another shot. Though the rebooted trilogy could borrow from some of his original plans, Emmerich was quick to point out that the new films will not be connected to the original Stargate film, noting “the actors look totally different … it would not work.”

The films will almost certainly not connect to the SG-1 universe, either, since Emmerich has never really been a huge fan of the small-screen version of the franchise. To this day, he maintains it is not a “canon” continuation from his film.

Here’s what he told Digital Spy:

“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.”

Fans attempting to get Amanda Tapping on Canada’s Walk of Fame


Amanda Tapping – National Nomination

The Canada’s Walk of Fame Award is bestowed annually to Canadians who have demonstrated the true essence of the Canadian identity.
The Grand Empress of Sci-fi, as so lovingly named by her many adoring fans, would join inductees from 2012 such as Sarah McLachlan, Phil Hartman, and former inductees like Nelly Furtado, Kim Catrall, and James Cameron.

One of Amanda’s biggest supporters, Mike Carvalho, @GateworldRocky on Twitter, is working very hard to make this happen. Using YouTube, Mike sings the praises of Amanda’s infectious personality and magnanimous attitude.

As a fan myself, I can completely understand his passion. Amanda Tapping is not only beautiful, but conveys a strength and intelligent female role model for today’s young women. Her role in the Charitable Foundation “Sanctuary for kids” has successfully raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for causes both worldwide and locally in Vancouver.

Amanda is joining “Supernatural’s” eighth season in a major recurring role. She will play Naomi, an angel who wears a business suit and has her hair pulled back.   Amanda’s character will make her first appearance in the seventh episode of the new season entitled “A little slice of Kevin”.

Best know in Sci-Fi circles as Captain / Major / Colonel Samantha Carter in the highly successful MGM television series “Stargate SG-1” – Amanda enjoyed a starring role in the SyFy Channels much loved series “Sanctuary,” where her character led a team of extraordinary people whose mission was to protect the “abnormals” of Earth.

If you, like so many adoring fans, believe Amanda deserves her own star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, you can do your part by going to canadaswalkoffame.com and submitting your nomination for Amanda.

I myself have already put in my nomination, and I urge all my Faithful Followers to do the same. It takes mere moments, and I can think of no one more worthy of this prestigious honor than our beloved Amanda!
