Brad Wright has recently confirmed at his convention appearance that:
1) There will be no SGU movie
2) There will be no SG-1 movie "Revolution"
3) There will be no SGA movie "Extinction"
4) He is clearing out his desk and leaving Stargate
5) The franchise as we know it, (for now at least) is over.
"We just recently found out that the SGU movie is not going to happen," Wright said during his stage panel today. "It took too long. We just couldn't get it together in time, and the window has closed. It's actually sad for me, because after 17 years, I'm cleaning out my desk tomorrow morning."
The capacity crowd at the Metrotown Hilton in Burnaby listened in silence, with some attendees visibly in tears, as Wright waxed reminiscently on the almost two decades worth of the franchise he's had a hand in creating.
"It was a great ride and I felt really good about [SGU] and about Stargate in general," Wright continued. "When something's been a part of your life for 15 years, it kind of takes you over."
"There are moments I'm so proud of and remember with fondness. I really enjoyed the last day of shooting 'Unending' [SG-1's series finale]. And I enjoyed every day on the set of Stargate Continuum. I'm very paternal and I love watching people become great at their jobs. I'm so proud of the pier scene [in Atlantis' Season Five episode 'The Shrine']. Joe [Flanigan] was so powerful in those scenes."
Wright also confirmed that the proposed Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis movies have been permanently shelved, along with another movie idea he had been trying to get a greenlight on, which would have combined and involved cast members of all three series. Scripts for the first two of those projects, tentatively titled Stargate: Revolution and Stargate: Extinction (respectively), were completed well over a year ago.
What does this news mean for the future of the Stargate brand and the franchise? In the short-term, there are no plans to begin production on anything Stargate-related. But it's a situation Wright doesn't see as final — even if he's not a part of it.
"It's a franchise. Stargate is not over," he said. "Somebody smart from MGM is going to figure it out, and something will happen." Wright said, adding that he's embracing the chance and prospect of writing material that isn't Stargate related, and will be actively working on other pilots
NOTE: Bickering and trolling in the comments section will be deleted. The video is about mourning the loss of a franchise we all love in one capacity or another, not snarking at the fans of an arm of the franchise you might not like.
