    Stargate - Revolution Petition ?

    So, it looks like to many of our dismay this Stargate Film is extremely unlikely to me be made, I don't know how the rest of you feel about this, but personally i'm mega disappointed. I was really looking forward to this, and it sucks to hear it most likely will not happen.

    It got me thinking though, is there anything we can do to change this? To increase the likelihood of this film being made? I know it's a long shot but do you guys think if we started a petition we could get enough names on it to sway the studio and convince them to make it?

    Sorry. But not a chance. It's already been tried and nothing came of it.

    I would love to see the movie made, but the chances of that succeeding are about as good as Wiley Coyote actually catching the Roadrunner.

      i don't know what we could do, other than let mgm know we're still interested. i tweet to mgm (on twitter) everyday, but i'm just one person doing this, and i think it would need thousands...

      but i also feel there's still this chance of something happening in the future. i can't help feeling that brad wright hasn't given up...

        This has been covered in many other threads, at least in principle. The sets, costumes and props have been sold, the cast have all moved on to other jobs. Whilst the showrunner may have good intentions, "the money" has no interest at all. So unless they can be persuaded to change their minds (good luck with that) or (perhaps) to sell the property to someone who is interested, including rebuilding all sets etc.) it's not going to happen.

          So a petition has already been attempted? How many signatures were on it in the end?

              i alternate between tweeting mgm with a combo movie for sg1-atlantis-sgu, and asking mgm to novelize the sg1 and atlantis movie scripts.

                Studios don't care about petitions. There's no way to verify the authenticity of the signatures. Even if there was, there's no way to know that those who signed would pay to see the movie. Even if they did, those fans wouldn't justify the cost of producing the movie to begin with. The film would have to reach a broad audience beyond the fans for the studio to make a decent profit.

                Your best bet is to write a script that will make MGM want to take a chance.

                  Or, just put the script in BOOK FORM.

                  I like it. Simple. Easy to remember.
