Stargate scribe Brad Wright spoke at the Creation Entertainment's Official Stargate Convention earlier today, where he revealed that plans for an SGU film are dead.
"We just recently found out that the SGU movie is not going to happen," he said. "It took too long. We just couldn't get it together in time, and the window has closed."
Wright went on to lament the end of the latest Stargate series.
"It's actually sad for me, because after 17 years, I'm cleaning out my desk tomorrow morning," he said.
Stargate Atlantis actor David Hewlett recently insisted that the franchise has a future. Wright confirmed this statement, saying that there is still a possibility for another movie or even a new series.
"It's a franchise. Stargate is not over," Wright said. "Somebody smart from MGM is going to figure it out, and something will happen."
Meanwhile, Wright said that he looks forward to getting the opportunity to work on material outside of the Stargate brand.
Stargate Universe was cancelled by SyFy last December after two seasons.
