STARGATE: Some Big Names Are Circling A Potential Reboot From Amazon/MGM

When Amazon acquired MGM, James Bond was the big franchise being bandied about, but one of their other properties is Stargate, subject of a possible reboot that big names are circling.

The 1994 Roland Emmerich/Dean Devlin film Stargate was a big enough hit that it spawned no less than three television series in the form of Stargate SG-1, Atlantis and Universe. Those shows, developed and overseen by the likes of Brad Wright, Robert C. Cooper and Jonathan Glassner, have developed and maintained a huge following for the past 25 years, which is why Amazon is currently considering a reboot.

Gateworld.net, the biggest online resource for all things Stargate, in conjunction with the YouTube interview channel Dial the Gate, is offering up a report that details some of what's going on.

"Among those who reportedly have expressed interest in Stargate to Amazon are The Expanse creators Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby ..., the producers of another of Amazon's fantasy hits, The Boys, as well as J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot."

In the video "State of the Gate," both Gateworld's Darren Sumner and Dial the Gate's David Read spoke to marketing veteran Jenny Stiven, who comments, "There was a call from Amazon Creative Studios for pitches from production companies, and it wasn't specific to Stargate ... One of the things that was done was they would say with certain production companies that they had either already worked with or were really excited about — like Mark Fergus and Hawk, his partner — 'Hey, we loved what you've done. What would you like to do?' And from my understanding, they said, 'Stargate.'"

Brad Wright had been developing an idea for a new Stargate that he's had discussions with MGM over, but apparently post-Amazon, things are looking very differently than they had been.

Notes Stiven, "When Brad wrote that script, it was appropriate for where MGM was at the time ... What he wrote and what the series was going to be was appropriate to that particular setup — that equation. [Today] the variables aren't just changed, they're blown apart ... HIs pilot, that series, was part of an equation that no longer exists.
