Taking reader questions for Empire Online, AlmightyPopcorn (probably not a real name) asked which if any elements from the TV show 'Stargate SG-1' would be adapted for his sequel reboot, to which the director responded: "Elements of it will flow into the reboot, definitely. The amount of characters, for instance. It's not a two-hander like the first one with James Spader and Kurt Russell, this time it's a bigger group. Yes, there's still the James Spader character and the Kurt Russell character, but other people are equally important. James and Kurt won't come back - maybe as cameos - it'll be a younger cast."

So there you have it - probably not much.
