Who's Ready for "Stargate 2" (and Maybe "Stargate 3")?

Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin don’t seem to work together anymore, but now that MGM is apparently interested in re-starting the "Stargate" movie franchise, the old partners might just be back in business. And Devlin seems pretty confident about getting James Spader and Kurt Russell back for a pair of sequels.

Courtesy of IGN FilmForce: "We always envisioned ("Stargate") as a trilogy, and, unfortunately, the way in which the movie got made, we didn’t really have control," Devlin explained.

"They think there is an audience out there who would like to see what part two and part three were intended to be because there was a larger story arc that we had in mind," he explained, adding, "and we never got to explore it. So I think it will be very exciting to actually get to go do parts two and three."

Devlin also said that the first film’s stars, Kurt Russell and James Spader, have long expressed interest in making a sequel. "The irony is actually because it was twelve years ago that we made "Stargate," part two was actually supposed to take place about twelve years later. We were just going to kind of age them up as actors so it actually works out really nicely."
