Independence Day and White House Down director Roland Emmerich has plans to reboot his Stargate franchise as a movie trilogy.
Emmerech, one of the co-creators of the original Stargate movie back in 1994, has pitched the reboot of his series to current rights-holder MGM.
"We went to MGM...and proposed to them to do a sequel, but as a reboot" Emmerich told Digital Spy. "And reboot it as a movie and then do three parts. Pretty soon we'll have to look for a writer and start."
When asked by the website if Emmerich has plans to reunite original Stargate cast members Kurt Russell and James Spader, Emmerich was...well, realistic with his answer. "The actors look totally different... it would not work," he said.
Emmerich is currently working on another sequel to one of his big-name properties, Independence Day 2, which might star Will Smith after all.
