UPDATE: Mallozzi has confirmed the working title for the Atlantis movie. The report below has been updated accordingly.
The Stargate Atlantis movie now has a finished script and a working title, executive producer and co-writer Joseph Mallozzi reported on his blog this week. Mallozzi teased fans that the movie title may be revealed over the weekend.
Today, this photo surfaced — at his dogs’ Twitter account, of all places!
The photo shows the on-screen title page of Stargate: Extinction. It’s the working title of the film, written by Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, who served as executive producers and show runners on the last two years of the television series.
The title is consistent with last year’s direct-to-DVD SG-1 movies, Stargate: The Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum — though it’s possible the studio may wish to keep “Atlantis” in the title to distinguish between the SG-1 and Atlantis films.
“It’s the working title,” Mallozzi added, “but I kind of like it because a) it’s story appropriate, b) a dynamic title, and most importantly c) not ‘Dark Gambit.’”
