Third SG-1 movie is Stargate: Revolution

Thursday - November 12, 2009
Category: GENERAL | Tags: ,

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.”

Keep your browser locked on GateWorld for the very latest on Stargate: Revolution has news develops!  We’ll be adding it to our Stargate Movies guide this week, where you can find everything we know about the film at a glance.

  • 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.

  • that is great but didn’t jack get killed in
    Continuim?? he was attacked by Baal. thought he died.

  • I am so ready for a new SG-1 movie! I have been going through some serious Jack, Sam, Teal’c, and Daniel withdrawal. I can’t wait to see the old team back together. Please MGM let them make a new SG-1 movie.
    I hear there is a romantic scene in the new movie and I really want to see it. I want to see you know who and you know who together once and for all. I so hope TPTB will let us see it happen before it is all over. PLEASE!

  • Totally agree with what others have said, I always liked it better with O’Neal, I really don’t care for Mitchell to much, he seems to full of himself for me.

    I just hope Amanda Tapping will be there too, sense she did do SGU, I assume she isn’t against playing Carter again.

    I been watching her new show ever sense it came on, its great.

    But I still love her as Carter too.

    I wonder what Michael Shanks has been doing lately.

    Or Christopher Judge for that matter, haven’t heard anything about them at all.

    I do like Vala though, and hope she is back too.

    But I can live without her and Mitchell both but not the others though.

    Oh and unlike others here I love Stargate Universe too.

    I liked Stargate Atlantis but never really was a huge fan like I was SG 1.

    I like SGU better then SGA, sorry but its just how I feel.

    Sure SGU could be better, I don’t care for all the sex in it.

    But I can live with that myself, their just trying to be like BSG that’s all.

    But I like the darker story lines.

    My favorite person on that show is Eli, I know most are more into Lt Smith, but I like Eli better.

    He’s cute, funny and smart which is sexier to me, then being all tough and ruff.

    I also like Dr Rush, and Col Young.

    I just like the whole show, and I hope it keeps going for many years to come.

  • Woo hoo!!!! >D
    So, if they need extras, were can I sign up?

    Also, the title “Stargate: Revolution”…couldn’t name it better myself, it is just…just…sweet!!!

  • @rsharpe
    Just remember that SGU is a failure in your opinion only not as a fact. So far it is anything but a failure. However I too hope for the movies.

  • I’m please that the third moive got the go ahead… i wounder if the old or new SG1 are going to be in it.

    I hope that there is romance between Jack and Sam if so all of us Jack/Sam shippers would say “It’s about dam time”, lol.

    I hope that the fourth stargate moive will get the green light also.

  • @Alimoo1971
    just becuase it has a working title doesn’t mean they got the go-ahead
    furthermore when you consider MGM’s financial problems it’s hard to imagine they will be getting it anytime soon
    still we can all hope ;)

    perhaps we should contact our governments about investing in it
    my government just keeps handing out billions of euros to banks in financial trouble so who knows :P

  • Yay! Let’s only see the old gang here. In that I mean seasons 1-8 gang. The actors/characters deserve their very own movie as a reward, now they’d stuck to it for over 12 years now and always willing to help out. So let’s leave Mitchell and Vala behind shall we?

    I know some of you adore Michell and Val, but they’ve ONLY been in it for FOUR years. Two of those seasons and the rest for two movies. I don’t really like them, I can tolerate them, but that’s also all.

    No to me the original team (Jack, Sam, Daniel & Teal’c) is the one and only team.

  • That is a great news. I liked that finally a romance screen with sam and o neill they earned it. I prefer the old team carter, tealc, jackson and o neill. O neill is way too funny and the romance between carter and him its always heart aching. so i would like to see them finally together. The new team they are good i like Vala but Mitchell he`s too independent like not one of the team. Not like Oneill the team was his family and they were very united that why they are the greatest and the romantics hints make it more exciting. In season 9 and 10 i`ve seen not any romantic screen that what was missing but they were good. Me especially till when Carter had returned because the first 5 episode i didnt like them they were too different, missing..

    The SGA i love it not great as SG1 but close. On the other hand ther SGU is a joke i dont like it a bit. Sorry i prefered they continue with either SG1 or SGA what waist of money and time. I expected to be with their league but not even close i stopped watching from episode 5. I got tired waiting to something happens.

    So fingers cross

  • I agree with charlieblue and 24frida. The original team just rocks the most. I really had to get used to Vala and Mitchell and I do like them but I loooove Sam, Teal’c, Daniel and Jack. I hope to see a lot more of them. Also I really hope that Richard D. will someday pick up the pen again and write some more seasons of SG1.

  • Well, my love affair with STARGATE ended last night with the 11-20-2009 epidsode of SGU. This show is so far adrift than just in space. There is no plot, there is no story, there is no acting, the photographer has the shakes and needs to stop drining on the job, the acting is in the basement. I have better things to do with my time than waste another minute on SGU. I am writing to MGM, SYFY/SCIFI, the producers, the director, the writers. SGU was not a well-thought out production. They didn’t even get the new found chair correctly. Nothing was down-loaded in McNeill’S BRAIN from the chair. Since I wouldn’t watch it over and over again like I did SGA and SG1, they have lost on the sell of DVD’s also. There is no need for sex in this show and definitely not the lesbian scene. SGU is ROCK BOTTOM rating of “F-minus” PlEASE BRING BACK SG1 AND SGA cast intact.

  • I’m all for a third SG-1 movie, but damnit, we still want Stargate: Extinction! Quit stalling!

  • How do we know it’s not some crap reality show soap opera script like SGU? I find it hard to trust SG writers these days!

  • @gigitravels
    Let us try to keep ourselves happy and just assume that it won’t be. And it if turns out otherwise then imagine that Stargate ended with Continuum.

  • Im glad there still pushing out stargate SG1 movies cause the new one sucks bad. Will alaways be a faithfull purchaser of SG1 and atlantis which there better be more of! the stargates have been the best programme on TV for years.

  • i hope they will make it in the next 5 years, cause RDA is not getting any younger (no offense).

  • Micheal Adamthwaite (Ha’rek) wants in on the new SG1:Revolution project.. let’s get him in.. :-)

  • I love SG SG1… but I thought it went downhill when they brought in Mitchell and Vala and I don’t think I saw a single season 10 episode straight through, except for the last episode which, we won’t talk about it.

    Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE Claudia Black and Ben Browder… and I REALLY REALLY wanted to love them in the show… but…

    while I was getting KIND OF use to Mitchell… I just HATED the way they wrote Vala. She was flakey, she was annoying, she was all flirting and sexual innuendos, no substance… and she was beneath Ms. Black’s talents.

    So I’m kind of glad they are not bringing Vala back. In fact, I secretly hope they wrote her out of the show for good. lol. Maybe she and Mitchell secretly got married and ran away. LOL.

    No matter what though, I LOVE the stargate Franchise (since my dad took me to see the first movie at the theater when I was little)… so I can’t wait for this next movie, even if Vala does appear in it in the end.

  • also, I’m going to agree with those who say bring back SG1 or SGA and get rid of SGU. I really don’t like the show. It just doesn’t feel like stargate. Someone said, they’re just trying to be like Battlestar Galactica. Well that’s fine… but this is stargate, and what was good for BSG doesn’t work for SGU.

  • Cant Wait!
    But I am wondering who the enemy will be I mean the Ori is destroyed along with the system lords ect.
    The only real enemies left are the lucian alliance and they are no challenge plus they are the main enemy for SG:U

  • excited! but your right, no bad guy-maybe the ancients will decide they’d like more power and go evil

  • […] December 10, 2009 in Cast | Tags: Richard Dean Anderson, Stargate | by Maria According to GateWorld, Richard will next appear in the Stargate Universe episode “Subversion.” The same site also reports that he will also appear in the next Stargate movie, tentatively titled Stargate Revolution. […]

  • YAY! O’Niell is back, without him the show was just missing something, but it would still be good if thy could incorporate Vala and Mitchell in it, my mate especially wants Vala back though for reasons males should figure out quite easily.
