Sorry for those who didn't notice the question mark, but... no, "Stargate 2" has not been announced yet.
It's just that yesterday, while I was surfing on the internet, I happened to read an old news about the possible sequel to the beloved Stargate film.
I remember having already read that news at the time it was announced (2006), but, well, finding it again had the obvious effect of refreshing my memory about it.
A couple years ago, at the San Diego ComicCon 2006, Dean Devlin, co-creator and writer of the first film, expressed a desire to bring back on screen what he originally envisioned as a trilogy.
So, he basically said that back in 1994 he was planning to do at least a sequel to the Stargate film. He said that the premises were pretty good and that he hoped to enlist Kurt Russell and James Spader - the two main protagonists - for the new film(s). He said that if ever done, "Stargate 2" and "Stargate 3" would not fit the well established canonicity of the several Stargate-themed TV series, but would instead develop a completely new continuity for the franchise.
He also added that he had some interesting ideas, and that the new film(s) would no more center on the egyptian mythology, but leave the adventure open to a myriad of new possibilities.
Now, it's ages since I last saw Stargate, but when I was younger I liked it a lot. I've never been a great fan of the TV series (you know, I'm not a fan of TV series in general) but the episodes I've seen through the years were pretty entertaining.
No doubts I think a hypothetical Stargate trilogy, if well done, could be potentially great.
So, I was wondering: what about Stargate 2?? Would you be interested in it??
