New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson said in a press release that he is “pleased” that production of Stargate Universe is returning to the state.

Cast members participating in the New Mexico shoot will include Robert Carlyle (“Nicholas Rush”), Brian J. Smith (“Matthew Scott”), and Jamil Walker Smith (“Ronald Greer”), according to KRQE News. The scenes to be filmed will also include several extras, for which local casting is underway in New Mexico.

“Malice” is written and directed by executive producer Robert C. Cooper.
