MGM, Warner Bros Reboot ‘Stargate’
MGM and Warner Bros. announced they are teaming with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin to create a re-imagined trilogy based on the sci-fi hit Stargate, one of the biggest titles in the MGM library. Emmerich, who directed and co-wrote the original film with Devlin, is on board to direct this one, with Devlin producing. Those two are already hard at work on a new version of Independence Day at Fox.
MGM’s Gary Barber called Emmerich and Devlin “world-class creators of the original Stargate,” and said they will “bring their reinvigorated vision of this wildly popular property to audiences of multiple generations.”
Emmerich and Devlin: “The Stargate universe is one that we missed terribly, and we cannot wait to get going on imagining new adventures and situations for the trilogy. This story is very close to our hearts, and getting the chance to revisit this world is in many ways like a long lost child that has found its way back home.” MGM’s Jonathan Glickman will oversee it with Warner Bros’ Greg Silverman. Warners will distribute with MGM handling some international territories. Back in its day, Stargate set the record for highest October gross and did near $200 million in global ticket sales. It went on to have a very successful run as a syndicated TV series.

NBC's sci-fi series Heroes is being revived as a 13-episode limited series, with creator Tim Kring back at the helm but a new cast of characters and a self-contained storyline that's "shrouded in secrecy."
The series, which aired from 2006-2010, will return in 2015 as Heroes Reborn, NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke announced Saturday, adding that some former cast members might "pop" back in for cameos. The characters and plots will be introduced in a digital series that will precede the TV premiere.
Heroes was a big hit in its first season, averaging 14.5 million viewers, but ratings declined sharply afterward as some fans began to sour on its heavily serialized story about a group of people with superpowers.
Kring went on to create Touch, a Fox drama that marked star Kiefer Sutherland's return about two years after 24 ended. But the show faded quickly and was canceled after two seasons. Heroes Reborn joins 24: Live Another Day, due in May, as the latest canceled series to get a limited-run revival.
in a statement, Salke said: "The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening. Shows with that kind of resonance don't come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We're thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won't rule out the possibility of some of the show's original cast members popping back in."
Coleman, who played former company agent Noah Bennett on the 2006 series, has signed on to reprise the role. Showrunner Tim Kring is also set to return for the 13-episode series, which will premiere in 2015.
Many of the original stars including Zachary Quinto and Milo Ventimiglia are also rumoured to be returning, though no official announcements have been made.
An online prequel leading up to the television broadcast has also been announced by NBC.
April 29, 2014, FOX announced today that they will not be renewing Almost Human.
'Sarah Conner'. 'Firefly.' 'Alcatraz.' 'Terra Nova.' 'Dollhouse.' 'Dark Angel.' These are but a few of the FOX sci-fi and fantasy series to be canceled before their time. Over its more than a quarter-century of existence, the network has steadily built up a reputation as the place that genre shows go to die. Sadly, one more name has now been added to that list.
Created by former 'Fringe' showrunner J.H. Wyman, 'Almost Human' starred Karl Urban as Detective John Kennex, who blames an android (known as "synthetics" in this universe) for the death of his partner and the loss of his leg. Recently out of a coma, Kennex is eager to get back on the force, but finds himself forced into a reluctant partnership with Dorian (Michael Ealy), a synthetic who possesses a free spirit and wit unlike his cybernetic brethren. Together, they fight crime. No seriously, they do.
Thankfully, unlike some of the other sudden cancellations in FOX's history, 'Almost Human' didn't end its 13-episode season on any major cliffhanger. Still, there were several smaller plot threads left open, that fans will no doubt continue to speculate about long after 'Almost Human' fades into TV obscurity.
Doctor Who Extended 50th anniversary episode trailer
Doctor Who Extended 50th anniversary episode trailer
An extended trailer for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special has aired which stars Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt, Billie Piper and Jenna Coleman all appear in the new promo for 'The Day of the Doctor'.
The BBC unveiled the first clip from Doctor Who's 50th special on Friday (November 8th) and a shorter 40-second clip earlier yesterday (November 9th) shown above.
The 75-minute instalment which will be shown on (BBC One at 7.50pm on Saturday, November 23rd) featuring classic Who monsters the Daleks and the Zygons - will be simulcast globally and screened in cinemas worldwide.
I try not to post negative comments as I leave this up to those who read the posts on this site.
I never like how Who changed gears from David Tennant so the show could relate to a younger audience with Matt Smith but now with Peter Capaldi on board things are going to heat up and hopefully move in the right direction.

Doctor Who star Matt Smith is to leave his role as the Doctor at the end of this year, the BBC has announced.
Smith first stepped into the Tardis as the 11th Doctor in 2010. Taking over from David Tennant, he was the youngest actor to play the role. After four years as the Time Lord on the BBC One show, viewers will see Smith's Doctor regenerate in the 2013 Christmas special. The 30-year-old actor said working on the show had been "the most brilliant experience".
Doctor Who marks its 50th anniversary in November with a special episode, which Smith has already filmed. The BBC said Smith's "spectacular exit" was yet to be revealed and would be "kept tightly under wraps".

Defiance - Upcoming New Sci-Fi Series
"Defiance" -- The series is set in the near future in the year 2046, where aliens known collectively as Votans have come to Earth seeking a new home after their solar system was destroyed. However, when they reached Earth they discovered that despite a prolonged negotiation with the government on Earth they were not welcome. Rather than turn away, they began a war with the humans as they are determined to make Earth their new home. During the war, the Votans drop terraformers on the planet and transform the surface of the planet; scorching the earth, opening chasms in the ground and covering the surface of the planet in dust and debris. After decades of war, a ceasefire is declared when both side realise that they must focus on survival on this new almost alien planet. The series largely revolves around the character of Joshua Nolan. Joshua was only ten years old when the Votans arrived and he served in the military during the war. With the war now over, he returns to his hometown of St Louis to find that its is no longer the city he left; it is little more than a refugee camp. Deciding that his services are needed, Joshua takes up a position as the Chief Lawkeeper in Defiance, so he can protect the town from dangerous clashes between humans and aliens, military scavengers and others dangerous visitors who occasionally enter the town.

I have come across some more information about ID 2 & 3.
Independence Day's upcoming sequels will take place 20 years after the original film, director Roland Emmerich has revealed. Emmerich and co-writer Dean Devlin.has completed the script for two sequels to the 1996 Sci-fi - titled ID Forever Part I and ID Forever Part II
The Amazing Spider-Man's James Vanderbilt has now been handed the script for a rewrite, Emmerich told Entertainment Weekly. Speaking about the overall plot of the sequels, he said: "The humans knew that one day the aliens would come back. And they know that the only way you can really travel in space is through wormholes. So for the aliens, it could take two or three weeks, but for us that's 20 or 25 years."
He continued: "It's a changed world. It's like parallel history. [Humans] have harnessed all this alien technology. We don't know how to duplicate it because it's organically-grown technology, but we know how to take an anti-gravity device and put it in a human airplane."
Emmerich added that the first part would end on a cliffhanger to set up the third instalment, and that it would mainly feature new characters.
He said: "It's still some of the same characters, but also new younger characters; it's a little bit like the sons take over."
Will Smith, Jeff Goldbum and Bill Pullman starred in the original film, which centred around an alien invasion that took place on America's annual Independence Day holiday.
The film grossed over $816 million (£520 million) at the box office worldwide. Bill Pullman recently confirmed that he will be involved in the project, while Will Smith has yet to sign up.
