In 1994, James Spader and Kurt Russell paired up as an unlikely duo, set off on a mission that could affect our entire world. Linguist Daniel Jackson (Spader) has been brought in to work with a mysterious Egyptian artifact, one that he manages to unlock as a portal to another, distant planet. Colonel O’Neil (Russell), along with Jackson, leads a team through this portal and the mystery of this Stargate is finally understood.
As Roland Emmerich’s epic science-fiction film heads up and down the remake isle, we thought it was a perfect time to reimagine Red Reddington and Captain Ron’s film for the modern era. Take a listen to our latest episode as Aaron is joined by Angela Wallock (Charlie’s Angels) and Rob Southgate (Southgate Media Group) to reshape a classic and Remake Stargate RIGHT!

In 1928 Egypt, a strange device is found by an expedition. In the present day, linguist Dr. Daniel Jackson is invited by a mysterious woman to decipher an ancient hieroglyph in a military facility. Soon he finds that the device was developed by an advanced civilization and opens a portal to teletransport to another planet. Dr. Jackson teams with Colonel Jonathan ‘Jack’ O’Neil to explore this new world. They find a land that recalls Egypt and humans in a primitive culture that worship and are slaves to Ra, the God of the Sun. It is then that they discover the mysteries of the Stargate.
What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-monthly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
