Brad Wright Discusses Third SG-1 Movie

With Brad Wright hard at work on Stargate Universe, and also the third  SG1 Movie, which is due to be released sometime in 2010 he has taken a few minutes out of his busy schedule to keep us all informed on his progress and whats in store for the Stargate Franchise.

Key facts regarding the third SG1 movie:

  • “We’re making a movie. Carl Binder and I are co-writing the script. Martin [Wood] will direct. If you have a good title, let me know.”
  • “We’re making it in the spring.”
  • “MGM was talking about more SG-1 movies as soon as the first did well.”
  • “The success of the SG-1 movies made an Atlantis movie possible, and all parties decided that was the best way to move forward.”
  • “We need to get some deals in place first.” (why the third movie hasn’t been officially announced by MGM yet)
  • “The next movie will be much more Jack centric.”
  • “MGM owns Stargate, not me. I can’t change studios. The DVD’s came out of a desire to prove we could make movies. I think we surprised the studio with what we could do on a small budget, but not enough to let us make a big Stargate feature.”
  • “If I get RDA in a movie, I don’t cut the scenes. If you’re looking for a re-cut movie, watch Children of the Gods when it comes out.”
  • “I liked the Aschen story too. Insidious. No plans right now.”
  • “I would love to do that [theatrical SG-1 movie with $20-25 million budget]. The reasons we can’t right now are complicated.”
  • Concerning RDA’s limited screentime in Stargate Continuum: “That’s all I could get him for. He’ll be much more involved in the next one.”
  • “I thought Claudia was terrific in Continuum, but Vala won’t be returning in the third movie.”
