— A movie adaptation of the hit television show Stargate has been greenlit.
The studio announced Thursday that Paramount Pictures will produce the film, which will be produced by the same team that produced the show with David Ellison.
The film is slated to be released in 2019, and will be a sequel to the 2006 TV series.
The original Stargate movie, which starred Jennifer Garner and Michael Stuhlbarg, aired on ABC from 2002-2010.
The franchise has been in development for several years.
In a press release, Paramount said it was pleased to collaborate with Stargate filmmakers on the Stargate film and to work with the talented team that made Stargate: Atlantis.
It said the movie will be the “premium theatrical release of the Stargates franchise.”
