MGM has announced that Rirchard Dean Anderson will reprise his role as Gen. Jack O’ONiell in the upcoming straight-to-DVD movie Stargate: Continuum.
The studio announced that Anderson will be filming scenes during the week of March 23-29 in the Artic with actors Ben Browder and Amanda Tapping.
“We’re thrilled to have Richard join us for Stargate: Continuum,” Brad Wright, co-creator of the Stargate franchise and writer/executive producer for the latest installment for the property, said in a statement. “As Gen. Jack O’Neill, Richard brings both a sense of history and familiarity to the continuing adventures of the Stargate team. And we all recognize his value as the much-loved hero among the Stargate fan base.”
Martin Wood, who has directed more than 70 episodes of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, is directing the film which will be released this summer. The film is the first of two planned Stargate SG-1 straight-to-DVD projects. The show’s 10th season marks its television run this summer on Sci Fi.
