Devlin on the film trilogy not to be


Stargate rules forever
Jul 5, 2003
Many Stargate fans know that when producer Dean Devlin and director Roland Emmerich released the original "Stargate" film back in 1994, they hoped to turn the single film into a trilogy of movies. But production company Centropolis films sold the rights to MGM to get the film released -- and MGM declined to support a sequel film, instead launching Stargate SG-1 on television in 1997.

According to a report at Ain't It Cool News, Devlin spoke briefly about his original intentions for the film trilogy at a recent screening of another of his popular films, Independence Day. The sequel to the 1994 hit "Stargate" was to reveal a connection between the pyramids in Egypt and the Mayan pyramids in the Western hemisphere. In "Stargate 3," the producers hoped to make a connection between every myth on Earth, "from Yeti to the Loch Ness Monster."

With MGM acquiring the rights to the Stargate franchise and opting for the television series instead, it seems as though Devlin's film trilogy is not to be. Devlin said that he has no plans to make the sequel films.
