MGM and Warner Bros Pictures have confirmed plans for a trilogy of Stargate films.
Roland Emmerich will return to direct the sci-fi project, which will be a reboot of his original 1994 film. Dean Devlin will also return as producer.
The reboot plans were first revealed last year when Roland Emmerich talked about his idea for a trilogy of films.
Kurt Russell starred in the original film alongside James Spader, Jaye Davidson and Alexis Cruz.
It spawned three TV spinoffs, one animated series and two direct-to-DVD films.
MGM Chairman Gary Barber said: "We couldn’t be more excited to once again partner with Roland and Dean, the world-class creators of the original Stargate, to bring their reinvigorated vision of this wildly popular property to audiences of multiple generations.
"Stargate is one of the biggest titles in MGM’s vast library, and we look forward to adding this great franchise to our slate. 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."
Emmerich and Devlin added: "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."
It has yet to be confirmed when the films will be released or whether any of the original stars will return.
Emmerich is also developing a sequel to his 1996 classic Independence Day.
