“Independence Day 2” Writers Likely To Pen “Stargate” Reboot
Nicholas Wright and James A. Woods are the duo likely to script the Stargate reboot.
They are currently in negotiations to write what will be the first of a trilogy.
Roland Emmerich who directed the original film, released in 1994, will helm the remake. Also, Dean Devlin, Emmerich’s longtime collaborator, produced the first movie, and is set to return as producer of the new project.
The original Stargate, which spawned a number of TV series, concerned a wormhole leading to a civilisation descended from the ancient Egyptians. The movie, starred Kurt Russell and James Spader.
No word yet on whether the new version Stargate will revisit the same plot or move into brand new territory.
Wright and Woods worked alongside Emmerich on the script of the long awaited Independence Day 2. Twentieth Century Fox green-lit the movie based on their draft.
