The SCI FI Channel’s live-action spinoff of Stargate SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis will go into production early in the new year and debut with a two-hour crossover movie in next summer. The shows will apparently be paired on the schedule as well as SG-1 goes into it’s eighth seasion. Given that Don S. Davis (Gen. Hammond) is apparently not signed for SG-1, perhaps he could be heading to another galaxy? The spinoff involves the discovery of a base on Earth used by the Ancients, the creators of the stargate network, in the ruins of Atlantis. This base leads to another galaxy, where they find primitive humans threatened by a brand new enemy.
Update: CNN has confirmed the report, saying that Jonathan died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center early on the 12th after a friend called from Brandis’ apartment shortly before midnight claiming Brandis attempted suicide, which is being investigated.
One of these days I intend on doing a MAJOR revamp of Sci-Fi Storm, and I’m talking from the ground up – starting first with dumping Slashcode (which is way too bulky for this) and writing my own software, with the eventual goal of a complete integrated site with both blog-style news and forums and other areas. It’s a way off (I have to steal my wife’s iBook and get it set up for programming), but I’m planning now.
So, speak up! What features should Storm 2.0 have? What should I toss? And how can I get you guys to submit more stories? 🙂
Update 11/20: just bringing back to the front for more comments.
Quite a while ago I remember talk about turning Arthur C. Clarke’s 3001: The Final Odyssey being turned in to a film. Well, there’s ben some movement on a movie called 3001 – but I’m pretty sure this ain’t it. Mike Judge, creator of Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill, is working on a script with fellow King writer Etan Cohen which involves a man who wakes up 1000 years later (sounds like Clarke’s), to find everyone is so dumb he’s the smartest person on Earth (don’t remember that…)
