Director Roland Emmerich has been talking about a potential sequel or reboot of his 1994 sci-fi film Stargate for some time now, but it appears that it is actually becoming a reality. Warner Bros. and MGM will partner on a Stargate reboot, with Emmerich poised to direct the new iteration of his own film. Producer Dean Devlin will also resume his duties as producer of the new pic as well, though it’s unclear how soon the remake could come to fruition. For those unfamiliar with the property, the original Stargate stars Kurt Russell and James Spader and revolves around a team of U.S. military professionals who discover and enter a wormhole to another planet.
