Tired Of Movie Remakes? Here's One That's Going Nowhereby

There’s broad and often valid concern over patterns in Hollywood that have been emerging over the past few years with regard to the content that is being produced – nostalgia is still very much a huge market and commodity right now, and studios are therefore still keen to reboot or remake a whole host of properties from years gone by to enrapture a new audience. Some do rather well – the Star Trek series of movies featuring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have won fans over and made considerable box office money, as have Disney’s recent run of live-action remakes of their animated canon. However, remaking and rebooting doesn’t necessarily guarantee critical acclaim, or even box office millions – you will only need to look at movie adaptations of Avatar : The Last Airbender and Jem and The Holograms from the last couple of years to understand that.

However, it’s also true that not all remakes are guaranteed to happen. One such reboot currently stuck in development hell is Stargate – a reimagining of the sci-fi staple from the mid-90s, which spun-off the popular Stargate SG-1 TV series, has apparently stalled before it’s even left the gate. According to an exclusive report from Empire, writer and producer Dean Devlin advised that the new Stargate project is not ‘looking so good’ after concerns over where the movie was heading behind the scenes. In the interview, Devlin describes the multi-studio method of moviemaking in today’s climate can potentially overwrite or transform an initial vision – and that he was greatly concerned that Stargate fans may not appreciate the end result, whatever it may have been. It’s this that has been holding the team back, Devlin states, as he is keen not to create a movie that could face rejection from the franchise’s fanbase.

Stargate continues to be a hugely popular series in the world of comics, and is still regarded as one of the best staple of 90s and 00s science fiction. Sadly, for anyone hoping to see more from the continuity or universe in the near future, a movie is not likely to be getting off the ground any time soon. This, of course, does not necessarily mean that it will never happen – and we will of course aim to keep you informed should anything change on the Stargate front. For now, fans may have to stick to their boxsets, comics and original movie for solace.
