fall? maybe hope so!!
fall 2008 just checked
Direct to TV/DVD release? if you have a link to some good info that would great.
Intrestingly enough a co-worker confirmed that these will be direct to DVD release just today. sould be nice to have the saga rapped up.
i agree ..really hate when a shows ends leaving you hanging
Continuum and ark of truth will be aired at the fall 2008 but we haven't seen the last of Amanda tapping because she is now leader of Atlantis as a colonel. Also we will see Michael shanks in an upcoming episode of eureka! http://www.gateworld.net/news/2007/07/icontinuumi_pushed_to_late_2008.shtml
yeah the first in march the second in june-july cmon march
Ark of truth screener is available now but the effects are not finished some of the audio is not complete
@Uncertain; think I will wait for a more finished version. I am truly curious as to how they wrap up the Ori situation but having seen a few screeners of Atlantis in the past and knowing how effects-centric this show is, it misses alot without sound. Probably something fun will be floating about in another two months or so...
Shanks: Another SG-1 movie may not happen
The much-anticipated third Stargate SG-1 movie might not come to pass, “Daniel Jackson” actor Michael Shanks told SciFi Wire. “Given the amount of time lag that’s gone on between us doing the movies, I suspect that we might be very far away from, if ever, doing another DVD movie,” he said.
“This might be the closing of the book on that particular [chapter of the] franchise.”
“I think everybody’s moving on to a certain point,” he told the site. “And with the new show doing well, everybody’s focusing their attention on that. The SG-1 idea is somewhat on the back burner, which is a little bit unfortunate, because I think one more story would have been a great way to bring Rick [Richard Dean Anderson, Jack O'Neill] back in and really go there. But you know, business is business.”
But it doesn’t mean that fans won’t get any Daniel Jackson and Jack O’Neill. Both actors will reprise their roles in the back half of Stargate Universe’s first season.
While Anderson otherwise enjoys semi-retirement, fellow former SG-1 cast member Amanda Tapping is busy producing and starring in her own series, Sanctuary (recently renewed for a 20-episode third season).
The script for a third SG-1 movie (as well as a Stargate Atlantis film), titled Stargate: Revolution, has been written. Though the producers were hopeful that it would go into production last fall, MGM’s financial woes and a depressed DVD market have kept it waiting in the wings.
MGM, which owns the rights to the Stargate television franchise, is up for sale and is currently in the second round of bidding from Time Warner, Lionsgate, and a few other interested parties. The studio will bring potential new owners the James Bond, Rocky, and Stargate franchises,as well as a 4,000-title film library. It also owns half the rights to the two Hobbit movies being produced by Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings). The downside: MGM comes with a reported $3.7 billion in debt.
Whoever the studio’s new owner ends up being, the math for the profitability of more direct-to-DVD Stargate films has to add up.
Shanks, though, certainly isn’t giving up hope. “Never say never,” he said. “It’s always a possibility.”
It's the job that never ends," said Shanks. "I just finished the guest spot on Supernatural as well. I've covered all the 'S' shows that shoot in Vancouver. I think that's about it. I may have covered all the 'S' shows that are on television. I have to find a different letter to move on to." Hmm ... Smallville, Stargate, Supernatural ... yep, that could be all of them.
As far as his Supernatural gig, the episode is called "99 Problems," and he plays a man who is part of a "Bible-thumping militia" that's fighting to stop the apocalypse. "I think I get my ass beat by both Jared [Padalecki, who plays Sam] and Jensen [Ackles, who plays Dean] at different points in the show. It's a lot of fun," he said.
"The reason why I did that was because it timed in perfectly, because pilot season is underway. I'm reading for Danno in Hawaii Five-O," he said with a laugh. "I don't know what to say about that. I haven't read the script yet, so I'm going, 'Really?' I'll have to wait and see.'"
If cast, Shanks would be appearing with Lost's Daniel Dae Kim, who'll be portraying Detective Chin Ho Kelly, a role played in the original series by Kam Fong, the Hollywood Reporter announced today.
While he doesn't have any information about how they will reboot the iconic police procedural, which ran on CBS from 1968 to 1980 and spurred the famous catch phrase, "Book 'em, Danno," Shanks knows one thing. "I'm sure there's some updates, because I don't think we could pull off that kind of brow furrowing with a straight face in this day and age. I'll tell you one thing, to go to Hawaii to shoot a series would be a dream come true, that's for certain. Not a bad gig there. ... I don't feel too bad for the people on Lost. Oh, you're on Lost. Poor guys. Yeah. Boo-hoo. Go back to your cabana and have another mojito [laughs]."
What do you think? Is it finally time for us to bury Stargate SG-1? And would Shanks make a good Danno in a new Hawaii Five-O
I would like to see some more SG1 movies...
