Stargate: Atlantis, the movie starring Chris Hemsworth and Michelle Yeoh

A few weeks ago, The Verge announced that it would be launching a Stargate movie adaptation that would star Chris Hemwell and Michelle Yoo.

Today, the site has officially confirmed that the movie will hit theaters this fall, with the film’s script written by former Stargate writer David Heyman.

“I’m thrilled to be working with David Heymann, who has been the first and most trusted voice for our Stargate franchise since the original series’ first season,” Hemsworth said in a statement.

“We’re excited to be developing a story that will tell a true story, from the characters’ perspective, and take us inside the mind of a young SG-1 pilot.

I’m looking forward to returning to the series for a sequel, as well as an exciting new chapter in the Stargate universe.”
