Stargate reboot will be the first installment of an epic trilogy. Dean Devlin, co-creator of the 1994 film Stargate, spoke recently about his plans to reboot and finish what he had set out to do way back then – and turn the franchise into a trilogy. The original did very well in the box office and deserved a sequel, but instead turned it into a successful television show, Stargate SG-1. Then that series had two spinoffs Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe. From the interview co-creator, Devlin explains how the original movie was always supposed to be a trilogy and his plans to revisit the material and finish what he started.
