Roland Emmerich to reboot Stargate

He’s been talking about it for years, but Roland Emmerich is finally ready to reboot his 1994 sci-fi Stargate – launching a new trilogy of films that take place beyond the wormhole.

No word yet on any plot details (or if we should expect Kurt Russell to return), but given the two movies, three TV shows, cartoons, games, books and comics that spun off from the original portal-hopping space adventure, Emmerich has plenty of material to work with.

Not that we should expect it anytime soon… Currently in production on his gay-rights historical drama Stonewall , Emmerich is already pretty busy revisiting another ’90s classic – prepping two back to back Independence Day sequels for a 2016 release.
