Wright: Stargate movies need O'Neill

Monday - May 12, 2008 | by David Read

This summer fans will be treated to the second Stargate direct-to-DVD feature, Stargate: Continuum, a film which will not only rip away the boundaries of what the franchise has done, but will also return to core staples, such as Jack O'Neill.

Richard Dean Anderson will be getting some much-anticipated screen time in Continuum, and if executive producer Brad Wright has his way, it won't be the last.

"For me, an SG-1 movie should include O'Neill. That's how I feel about Stargate," Wright told us. Already a third SG-1 movie is being considered, and if nothing else, Brad says Jack needs to be back.

"[The third Stargate movie] is an O'Neill story, and I would include as many of our cast as we could, both financially and in terms of availability."

Availability may not be as simple as it sounds to the average viewer. With Amanda Tapping producing her SCI FI Channel series Sanctuary and Christopher Judge and Michael Shanks developing Rage of Angels, Stargate is not on the top of their minds.

"These are talented people," Wright said. "They may well not be available at our beck and call when the next time we want to make a movie. And that's what happens.

"But you know what? They have a good time when they come, and I think these guys had a good time making Continuum. Is it likely we'll ever get them all again? That's kind of unlikely just because of the math. But our core folks, I will move heaven and earth to get them if I can."

Season Nine of SG-1 introduced two new characters to the series, Colonel Cameron Mitchell and General Hank Landry, to fill the shoes of Jack O'Neill as leader of both SG-1 and Stargate Command. Fan favorite Vala Mal Doran, played by Claudia Black, also returned to be an added presence during Amanda Tapping's pregnancy.

"I think Jack and Daniel and Carter and Teal'c, and Mitchell now, to a certain extent, and Landry now, to a certain extent, are part of the fabric of SG-1," Wright told GateWorld. "Fans will get mad at me if I don't put them in."

Stargate: Continuum is due to hit store shelves on July 29 in both standard and Blu-Ray DVD formats. Preorder the movie from Amazon.com, and stick with GateWorld for very special coverage in the weeks ahead!
