Stargate‘s Christopher Judge (“Teal’c”) may be headed back to your television with a role in a brand new science fiction series.
“It’s a sci-fi show,” Judge said. “We are going to announce soon. We’ve already signed a deal with a certain company, and I think fans will get a kick out of who it is. And we are in negotiations with a second company that also fans will get a kick out of, because they are doing some of the best stuff in film right now. And it will be only their second foray into television. I can’t wait to let it out of the bag.”
The actor said he believes both Stargate fans and sci-fi fans in general will be excited about the new show.
“The announcements will probably be relatively soon,” Judge said — “probably in the next month or so.”
Judge has previously spent years working on writing and producing a new fantasy series Rage of Angels, which was picked up for development by Starz Entertainment in 2010 and was believed to be on its way to shooting a pilot (story). If that’s not the series Judge is talking about, it’s likely still languishing in development hell.
In the meantime, he’ll make an appearance in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, opening in theaters around the world next week (story).
Judge also appears in the upcoming film “To Have and to Hold,” a period piece based on the classic novel set in 1619’s Jamestown, Virginia colony. He’s in Cambodia this week to begin filming another new project.
