"MGM was talking about more SG-1 movies as soon as the first did well....The next movie will be much more Jack centric." — Brad Wright in Joseph Mallozzi's Weblog, Brad Wright Answers Your Questions, January 2, 2009.

Although the script for the movie was written, MGM discontinued the Stargate franchise before the movie could be produced. The news of the end of the franchise was announced by creator Brad Wright at the Vancouver Stargate Con on April 17, 2011 (Solutions: Brad Wright: Stargate Movies Won't Happen, April 17, 2011).

Solutions Summary

"Finding out about the Stargate has been a story that has always been at the back of my mind as a potential, big thing we could do, and I think it’s a big enough story to save it for a movie. Hint. Hint. Hint. Hint." — Brad Wright, MGM Video Interview, posted in July 2008, removed 2009. Excerpted in Solutions News Blog.

  • "Well, it’s definitely in the works. Brad and Carl hammered out a story and Carl is presently writing the first draft. I also believe there has been some preliminary discussions with the actors." — Joseph Mallozzi, December 21, 2008.
  • "Carl Binder and I are co-writing the script. Martin [Wood] will direct. If you have a good title, let me know." — Brad Wright in Joseph Mallozzi's Weblog, January 2, 2009.

  • "So what, many of you have been asking, IS happening with the SG-1 and SGA movies? Well, at last report, Carl was about 20 pages away from a first pass of the script which will then find it’s way onto Brad’s laptop where he will do his pass. The Atlantis movie is still an outline but Paul and I will be starting work on the script in the coming weeks and hope to have it completed by April. An official production start date for either movie has yet to be announced. More detailed discussions on both movies will be taking place in the coming weeks and, hopefully, I’ll have more definitive news for you then regarding everything from actor participation to a preliminary schedule." — Joseph Mallozzi, January 26, 2009.
  • "There will be a Stargate SG-1 movie [for DVD], probably filmed around the same time the [Stargate] Atlantis movie is filmed this coming summer. So that’s all going to be going on. [...] as far as I know, is pretty Rick-heavy [as in Richard Dean Anderson], pretty O’Neill [Anderson]-heavy. So I don’t know much more than that, but I will most definitely be involved in it." — Michael Shanks, Solutions: SGU, SG-1 Movie Casting News, January 26, 2009.
  • Concerning the Stargate Program going public: "Yeah, you know what? It was a possibility, it was something we considered, but obviously it couldn't really be dealt with in that episode [SGA's "Enemy at the Gate"]. We would have had to have come back to deal with it. And Brad has said that it's something that he wanted to deal with in SG-1. At this point I'm not sure -- if we had done it it would have run counter to what's going on with the third SG-1 movie. For that reason alone, we couldn't have done it. It would be nice to sort of take that step and open up and make the program public." — Joseph Mallozzi, interview, posted in early February 2009.
  • Concerning Richard Dean Anderson and the Stargate franchise: "If it hadn't been for Rick, the franchise wouldn't be the franchise. I don't know that we would have done ten seasons, much less done the spin-off. So the success, and a lot of the humor, really goes back to Rick." — Joseph Mallozzi, interview, posted in early February 2009.
  • "No title yet. Carl has finished work on his first SGU script, Water, and is moving on to an outline for his second script. Once that is done, he’ll finish his pass on the SG-1 movie and then send it Brad’s way at which point Brad will do his pass." — Joseph Mallozzi, February 3, 2009.
  • "I would have thought word had gotten out by now, but as I am informed, so shall ye be: the movie has been green lit. There are so few details beyond the ‘go ahead’, but I sat next to Charlie Cohen and across from Brad Wright at dinner two weeks ago (the cast dinner for the launch of Stargate Universe), and just an hour prior to sitting down to mediocre cuisine, Charlie had announced MGM’s intention to make the next Stargate movie. As I am led to believe, shooting may start this summer, most likely." — Richard Dean Anderson, March 2, 2009.
  • "Everything I've heard is probably the stuff that's on the Internet, which is that [another] film has apparently been green-lit, which just means the financing has been approved, and that there's a fall shoot expectation, an October-November kind of thing probably, when Universe wraps. They want Martin Wood to direct it. They probably want Amanda in it, and her [Sanctuary] schedule probably goes through the fall as well. So that would make a lot of sense on a lot of levels, but there's nothing been confirmed, no contracts in place." — Michael Shanks, Sci Fi Wire, April 29, 2009.
  • "I was admittedly wistful. After all, I’d written for those standing sets for seven great years and, suddenly, they were gone. But eventually, as the new sets took shape, that initial melancholy gave way to excitement at the prospect of the upcoming Stargate: Universe series and the third SG-1 movie. Over the course of the next few weeks, the sets were finished and, as impressive as they were on those casual strolls, they were ten times more impressive once properly lit and engaged. And then ten times more impressive than that when we first saw them in dailies." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 3, 2009.
  • "Just because the SGC isn’t there now doesn’t mean it can’t be for the movie." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 4, 2009.
  • Jedi Master also writes: "An WHY is a SG1 movie being done first!!!" Answer: "Actually, we don’t have a firm production date for that either." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 6, 2009.
  • "I don’t know anything about the movie. Michael [Shanks] and I were just talking about it; as far as we know, it’s going to be filming in the Fall and Rick [Richard Dean Anderson] [is] going to be in it and Chris [Judge] and Michael and I don’t know anything else beyond that." — Amanda Tapping, Moviehole interview, May 2009.
  • E writes: "Have Brad and Carl shared any updates on SG-1 movie?" Answer: "Not a one. And that’s just as well. I want to be surprised like everyone else when the movie finally comes out." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 25, 2009.

  • Scary writes: "# 1 Does the SG1 movie have a title like SGA does? # 2 When you get the “call” do you think that both movies will be made at the same time or will they only make one at a time? # 3 How long do you think you will get to shoot each movie?" Answers: "1) Stargate: Revolution 2) I wouldn’t even dare hazard a guess. 3) 3-4 weeks for each movie would be great." — Joseph Mallozzi, November 11, 2009.
