After ‘Independence Day 2’ Roland Emmerich Wants To Make A Rebooted ‘Stargate’ Trilogy
  |  @   |  

We’ve heard plenty about Roland Emmerich‘s work to make Independence Day 2 happen and trying to get Will Smith to return to star, but Emmerich is already looking beyond that.

In a recent interview, the director talked about how he’d also like to reboot Stargate and make a new trilogy out of it. Stargate was originally co-created by Emmerich and Dean Devlin, who also worked with Roland on Godzilla, The Patriot, and the past and future Independence Day flicks. The first movie was released in 1994 starring Kurt Russell and James Spader. After the movie numerous TV series, video games, and an animated series followed.

Here’s what Emmerich had to say about the planned reboot:

“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.”

But don’t expect to see Russell and Spader back for the reboot. According to Emmerich, “The actors look totally different. It would not work.“

Would you be excited to see a new Stargate reboot trilogy? Who would you want to see cast if Russell and Spader won’t be involved?
