stargate

Hey, gang, have we ever got some interesting news for you: a previously-released Hollywood property is getting a reboot!  Isn’t that exciting?  Isn’t that wild?  And guess what?  Not only will said previously-released Hollywood property be getting a reboot—it’s going to be made into a trilogy!  That way, you can pay to see the original three more times!  Isn’t that great?

We here at ScreenCrave hope you liked the above paragraph, as that’s pretty much all you’ll be seeing in our news updates for the foreseeable future, as Hollywood has decided to shoot for the snake-eating-its-own-tail business model and simply remake every film ever made.  Case in point: Stargate.

Yes, Stargate, the 1994 pulp sci-fi hit starring Kurt Russell and James Spader (which has already spawned two straight-to-DVD sequels, three TV series and one animated series) is getting the reboot treatment, courtesy of original director Roland Emmerich:

“We went to MGM, who has the rights, and proposed to them to do a sequel, but as a reboot… and reboot it as a movie and then do three parts. Pretty soon we’ll have to look for a writer and start.”

So not only a reboot, but a trilogy, as all action films must now be made into three-film tentpole franchises.

What do you think of the Stargate news?
