Director Roland Emmerich has a lot on his plate, with pre-production on an Independence Day sequel and an original historical drama called Stonewall, but today, MGM and Warner Brothers have announced a partnership to bring a reboot trilogy of the 1994 sci-fi feature StarGate back to cinemas.

Whilst little is currently known regarding the films plot and a script is not believed to have been written, it is understood that the pitch will take the form of a semi-sequel/ reboot project. It's possible, however unlikely that the original film's stars Kurt Russell and James Spader would return.
