Third SG-1 movie is Stargate: Revolution

SGU "Earth" - O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson)The working title for the next Stargate SG-1 movie has been revealed.  Stargate: Revolution will reunite the cast of the long-running show, including former lead Richard Dean Anderson.

The title has announced at Stargate writer-producer Joseph Mallozzi’s blog.

Revolution will be the third DVD movie for the SG-1 team — if it gets made, that is.  After reportedly giving the production a green light this past spring (story), MGM placed it back in drydocks along with the Atlantis movie, Stargate: Extinction.

As of last spring, the intention was to shoot one or both of the movies this fall, with the SG-1 film apparently taking priority in the production schedule.  But continuing economic pressures have prevented MGM from committing just yet (story).

Stargate: The Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum filmed in 2007 and were released in 2008.

The script for the SG-1 movie has been written by Brad Wright and Carl Binder, who are currently serving as executive producers on Stargate Universe, with a story reportedly set sometime between Continuum and the start of SGU.  Wright told fans at this year’s Vancouver Stargate convention that “I had a story idea that really worked with O’Neill.  And it’s not just his character, by any means. It’s a Stargate story that brings O’Neill back in a big way.”

  • Sounds good to me. Any chance they’ve changed their minds about having Vala back? As I recall she was not slated to appear, and I really like her character!

  • So we bring back the original team? More O’Neill, less Mitch and Vala…? Not that I dislike Mitch (Vala is another matter, she can be rather annyoing at times), I simply like O’Neill and the old dynamic better…

  • Totally loving the working title for the third Stargate SG-1 movie! Very cool! I’m so very much looking forward to seeing Richard Dean Anderson back as Jack and reuniting with the original SG-1 team of Sam, Daniel, and Teal’c. IMHO they are the best, definitive, and most memorable team dynamic of all of Stargate SG-1’s ten seasons! Seasons 1 – 8 rocked and if the third movie is in the same vain as those first 8 seasons…it’s gonna rock too! Cannot wait!

  • Title is so very.. Matrix-ian (as in third movie of Matrix, Third movie for SG-1?)

  • Yeeeees :D Can’t wait!!!! And please please bring the old team back – they were by far the best team in Stargate universe!

    Waiting for more news…. :)

  • SG1: Revolution? Nice! / Still DO WANT one Atlantis Movie. New and BETTARRR!! :))

  • I dont care how long it takes them to get the money, I’ll wait. Dont give up on it.

  • @zackwbrandon
    I agree, Vala and Mich should both be in it. After all they are both SG-1 members now. If they are not in it it’s still an Stargate film just not an SG-1 film.

  • Interesting, that the news of a title gets released today, when news outlets are reporting about MGM’s catologue been sold.


    Specifically took this link, because it did mention the idea of the Stargate franchise, much like the Bond one, the possibility of been sold separately.

    As much as I’d love to see some more good ol’ classic Stargate – I wouldn’t be holding my breath.

  • MGM’s financial trouble could be a great thing for the franchise or a horrible thing depending on who buys it (the franchise). I could imagine some company buying Stargate and learning that two scripts (this movie and the Atlantis one) have already been written and decide to make those movies (the new company would not have to pay anybody to write a script). Also, does anybody know if the Atlantis sets are still standing?

    Or the new company might want to do something completely different, such as no DVD movies or TV shows and do something like a reboot. Or a new company might just want the revenues from syndication deals and not be interested in making new stuff.

  • I think we should overload the MGM site with our desire they make these movies. If they want to see if it will make money then MGM put up a pre-order site and see what comes in. If we don’t come through then just refund the money and don’t make the movies. Either way, make a decision!

  • I hope Mitchell and Vala are in it, especially Mitchell. Seasons 9 and 10 are in my top 4 seasons along with 2 and 3.

  • It sure is nice to hear there is still some development on the SG1 front, even though it’s only a working title.
    If MGM is so worried about the economic climate that they’re holding back on producing these movies, what about easing their mind a little.
    I would like to pre-order both the movies on DVD. That way they have at least two copies sold. If they would somehow collect pre-orders from people until there are enough to warrent the production going ahead then that would solve the problem wouldn’t it.
    I’m sure there’s plenty of people out here that can’t wait to get their hands on any new Stargate movie.
    Perhaps you people at Gateworld could poll this and help convince MGM of our necessity…

  • Nice title, somewhat epic. The only thing I don’t like about the new movies getting delayed is how they prematurely planted seeds for them in things that have already come out. Even if it takes them five more years to make these movies, they’re still supposed to take place before Stargate Universe begins. I like things to be released in REALTIME, much like Star Trek did. It would be wise if the producers didn’t trap themselves into a timeframe in the future, and to allow their plots to be a bit more flexible so that the release date of the movie roughly matches the date of the events IN the movie.

    I know it seems trivial… I just hate watching Stargate Universe knowing that two epic events have already transpired, and we have to find out about it out of order. When The Ark of Truth came out, it had already happened as compared to what was currently happening in Stargate Atlantis. And long after Continuum came out, we find out that when it came out and we all first saw it, it hadn’t happened yet in terms of how it lined up with Atlantis. Gah.

  • @US06154 The Matrix had a completely different name: Revolutions with an s at the end lol

    Jokes aside I really do hope that this and Extinction are made.

  • I can only hope that after spending way too much money on the failure that is Stargate:90210, there will be enough to make both movies. If I have a choice, I would much rather the Stargate Atlantis movie would be made. We only had five seasons and the show was getting better with each one. The episode, Vegas, showed that there was so many more stories that could have been told. I have all five seasons on DVD and rewatch them constantly. A Stargate Atlantis movie would rock my world.

  • sounds neat but considering how deep MGM are in trouble: considering to sell of the bond franchise and another one(forget sorry), I would say this movie is a long way off. But, if they have named a working title then it definatly means something is happeining behind the scenes, but I’m being way too hopeful. lol.
