J.J. Abrams Takes Over Another ‘Star’ Franchise With ‘Stargate’ Reboot

Star Trek, Star Wars, and now”¦ Stargate!

J.J. Abrams, the powerhouse director with a passion for lens flare, has been tapped to take over Roland Emmerich‘s planned Stargate reboot. In an announcement that seems to have come out of nowhere, MGM stated in their official press release that, “If there was ever a director worthy of taking on such a vast and loved universe with an exponential amount of worlds to explore, it’s J.J. Abrams. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on board.”

Deal: ‘Stargate SG-1’ Complete Season DVDs
  |  @   |  

The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is the Stargate SG-1 Complete Season DVDs for $13.99 each (that’s 65% off the list price of $39.98). You can choose any/all of the 10 individual season DVDs for this price.

Note, this sale is only for today, Friday October 15, 2010, while supplies last.

This is a great deal if you need to complete your collection or perhaps want to jump onto the popular scifi series, Stargate SG-1, which stars Richard Dean Anderson, Christopher Judge, and Sanctuary‘s Amanda Tapping.

Also, I noticed that the price on the Stargate SG-1 – The Complete Series Collection has been drastically reduced to $93.99 (down 53% from the list price of $199.98). The lowest I’ve ever seen this box set drop to was $131.99, so this is truly a steal at this point — 10 season DVDs, along with tons (seriously tons) of bonus features, this works out to around $9.40 per season if you buy the entire package. That’s crazy!!!

And though it’s not doing the best at the box office right now, consensus seems to be that it is quite the hilarious movie. But did you know that an actual MacGyver movie was being developed as well?

New Line Cinema has hired Jason Richman to begin work on a script for the movie adaptation of the television series. The series, which starred Richard Dean Anderson, ran from 1985 to 1992 on ABC and followed a brilliant secret agent who was able to infiltrate and escape any place and situation, no matter how difficult or how little resources that he had available to him. Anderson also appeared in a couple of TV movies and in some of the MacGruber sketches.
