    My question is “how long will it be?”. I have a major problem with so many current films being too long and having too much padding. Man of Steel was 143 minutes, The Wolverine 126 minutes, both of which could have easily been edited to cut out 10-15 minutes without affecting the story. Amazing Spiderman 2 was 146 minutes and suffered from the same problem as The Dark Knight (152 min) that there were too many extra storylines tacked onto the end. Even X Men:DoFP could have been cut to below 2 hours and it wouldn’t have harmed the movie at all.

    So, can we please have a good, tight plot without any extraneous dream sequences, repetitive battle scenes (how many times do we need to see Smallville/NYC/wherever smashed to pieces building by building?) and long winded expositions, ta?

    Will it involve a new O’neill and Daniel.
    I would rather it set up new characters than use the current ones.

    Will it be a reboot or a new twist on the original ?

    Hopefully, MGM relies how bad an idea this is and call it off.

    One can hope and dream.

    I doubt they will want to delay Independent forever 2 as back to back filming saves money after all. I predict 2018, if this monstrosity isn’t cancelled.

    I would luv for it to be 2016 or 2017. There are plenty of stories to tell.

    I can’t understand people who, if they can’t get the movie their way, they don’t want anyone to get a new movie. I enjoyed the original movie and am looking forward to this version even more than new SG-1 versions. (I own all the Stargate series DVDs and still enjoy all 3 series, so I am a SG-1 series fan.) I want to see how the envisioned Movie plot line carries out. It doesn’t have to be the same as the series because, (spoiler alert) Its not “based on a true story”. It may be great or it may not but I will judge it based on its own merit.

    so we got a few years before the birth parents rip the child from the nice adopted parents and ruin everything. Good to know.

    I think it’s good that Stargate is getting a remake but by the sounds of it it will be a sequel to the original SG movie. If that happens I can’t get over how much canon will be lost. Just think, if we erase the TV series we are left with a Stargate that can only go to one planet, the goauld don’t exist, no cartouche on Abydos, and numerous other things. If they weren’t in the first movie then I highly doubt they were part of Emmerich’s plan for the original movies so who knows where he’ll be going with the story now. But mgm know they have most fans like me in their pockets anyway, I know I’ll probably be going to the first screenings just because I have been SG deprived for so long and I assume others feel the same way. And there is the financial sense for doing whatever they like I guess.

    I loved the original movie *and* SG-1 and just happy to have more stories set in the Stargate universe. This is a chance to bring Stargate to a new generation – there could even be a new spin-off TV series from this trilogy! And that could possibly have a cross-over with the SG-1 Universe. Quantum Mirror anyone? =) I think the new movies should explore other cultures that built pyramids, especially the Mesoamerican and maybe Chinese mythology?

    Everytime I hear the word reboot, the SG1 200 episode comes to mind.

    I have two questions (As soon as I stopped laughing at this news):

    (1) Will this be a sequel to the 1994 film or a reboot?

    (2) In either case, will they perhaps have rebooty-takes on some parts of SG-1, namely their own versions of Samantha Carter and Teal’c?

    I strongly suspect some version of Daniel Jackson and Jack O’Neill (though likely doomed to lack the ineffable charm of Mr. Anderson) will be in this one way or the other, though.

    i have a big question:

    will this trilogy reboot/re-imagine thingamabob have any positive effect on the tv franchise and its chances on restarting?

    that’s ALL i care about regarding this news.

    I hope that Roland Emmerich sets the new trilogy in the same universe as the original because that darker tone then the series worked really well and could open up the story in a good way if done properly!!
