Dean Devlin Wants to Make ‘Stargate’ Sequel
Producer/Director Dean Devlin told the press that he has ideas for big screen sequels to his Stargate.
“Roland [Emmerich] and I had always planned to do three films and want to do more,” he said of Stargate which was a 1994 success before finding its true home on television. “MGM has said they want to play out the television series first so we are on the back burner.” Stargate and its spinoffs have been running ever since with the latest iteration, Stargate Universe, due in 2009.
And as to inevitable question about a sequel to Devlin and Emmerich’s most success film, Independence Day, he said, “We never intended to do any films in that series beyond the first one. I think something may happen though as it seems a better idea now the further we get from 911. The visuals of the film would not be much fun in the wake of such a devastating tragedy but since time has passed and the bad guys are aliens and not terrorists perhaps it might be time to revisit it.”
