Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

Only as much as this... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stargate:_Extinction

Which is mostly the same as your link tongue

Maybe a bit more here, it seems Extinction is the working title.

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

Could it mean Extinction of the wraith?

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

Hmm. Could be, it says it's a lone-story line so as long as they could do it neatly in 1.5-2 hours that would be cool!

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

I hope that they will make a longer movie.. perhaps 3-3.5 hours? That would be neat...

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

read mallozzi's blog... you can glean a few clues from that...1/ it is not going to wrap up the Wraith storyline... remember Atlantis is on Earth, and the Wraith don't know the location.. 2/  it's going to see the demise of Dr Bekket [again...

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

All seasons except the last.... I really think they kinda gave up... or my favorite theory, saved all the good ideas they came up with at that time for SGU

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

There were some good stuff in the last season... the Vegas episode, would be an example of that... But perhaps you're right.. or hopefully you're right.. would be nice if we have all the good stuff to look forward to smile

in season five was clear they had a good idea for an ending, but the episodes leading up to it from the mid season closer/opener were questionable at best... and Vegas was such an awesome episode... it made them look even worse... worth noting too, that even though Vegas was the second to last episode it was shot earlier on so they had more time to perfect it... time well spent though...

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

I heard that Vegas was the last episode they shot... perhaps they started shooting it earlier, but it was finished last, or something.

The last episode should have been much longer than it was... you can't just rap up a 5 season show, in 40 minutes... The wraith should have gotten the ZPM 2 episodes earlier, and than they could have built from there...

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

no no... it was shot early on in production, but spent most of the season in post production, and yes, was one of the last ones finished... and it shows... the look, the editing, the SFX are all well above the SGA standard... well above any show's standard for that matter... and yeah, the last episode was such a let down, especially following Vegas... it was very deus ex machina... at the very least it should have been a double length episode... but honestly right now i'd rather not reopen that wound... i'm going to go watch Vegas instead.... big_smile

True..

Stargate is pretty much the prefect blend between SciFi and reality. Despite all the wormholes, space travel, aliens and such it still manages to stay grounded and "close to earth" if you will...

don't sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project

I wonder what is happening with this project... David Hewlett wrote something on his twitter which made it sound like he had no idea that this project even existed... and yet, IMDb says it's going to be done in 2009!

Has anyone heard anything about this movie?

Getting a lot of questions about Atlantis and my involvement in a possible movie and the new show, and that sort of thing, so here's the latest...

No plans for a return to Stargate I'm sad to say.

I caused a bit of a fuss, with a twitter I sent out the other day about the subject, and thought I had better clarify.... I haven’t heard anything from anyone about an Atlantis film. I mean, I hear/read what you do (what, I can't be a nerd too!?) but nobody has approached me or talked specifics, either confirming or denying the possibility of a movie. When Atlantis was first canceled, an SGA movie was talked about like it was a sure thing. That in not the case now. Knowing that, I’ve got to think that it’s not going to happen. Hopefully I will be proven wrong!

The cancellation of a television series is always a bit messy. I often end up feeling a bit bruised and sore during the process, and Atlantis is no exception. I'm finding that it's even harder with Stargate, as it's a franchise that dares to continue without me! (crazy I know!) I had such an amazing time on that show, so I'm very envious of other people experiencing it all for the first time, working in the same studios, spouting the same techno-babble and eating my donuts (see what I mean!) Having been so invested in a project and in such a fantastic role for so long, it's not easy going cold turkey! McKay Detox is a drag!...in fact I'm not sure I ever want to get rid of the guy entirely!

I have never denied that I am unhappy and sad that Atlantis is over. I hate not being able to play Rodney McKay anymore. But that's the life you lead as an actor. You ride into a show, you play your part, and then you're off again, looking for another show in need of a new character to cause trouble and screw it all up for everybody...my hope is that it will be the one I'm working on right now!

Re: Untitled Stargate Atlantis Project
