White House Down, Independence Day, and Stargate movie director Roland Emmerich has confirmed that he intends to reboot the Stargate franchise as a new movie trilogy. Emmerich directed and co-wrote the original Stargate movie back in 1994 which also spawned several television shows. Emmerich told Digital Spy:

We went to MGM, who has the rights, and proposed to them to do a sequel, but as a reboot... and reboot it as a movie and then do three parts. Pretty soon we'll have to look for a writer and start.

Originally a sequel was planned to the Stargate movie however plans got scrapped because "the actors look totally different."
