Producer Dean Devlin just confirmed at a Q&A session during the Flyboys panel at Comic-Con 2006, that they are in talks with MGM to create Stargate sequels in regards to it being originally a trilogy.
"Is the trilogy dead?
Dean: The interesting irony is that now that Flyboys is independent, we've made a deal with MGM to release it. And now I'm in a position where I could suddenly do those sequels. We're in talks with MGM to do Stargate sequels."

We're letting everyone know that we are setup and have internet connectivity inside the room here for live blogging all of the movie panels today.
Our schedule of live blogging is as follows (all times are PST):
Although I'm a bit tired given that it's 1AM after preview night here in San Diego for Comic-Con, I wanted to take some time to voice my opinion on Renaissance, the French motion-capture animated movie that I caught a screening of tonight.
I have to say first and foremost that the animation style on this movie is not only amazing but incredibly unique and, dare I say, groundbreaking. I feel it has opened some great doors and amazing possibilities for many more movies in the future. It's similar to the Sin City style but still unique. Watching it was honestly like looking at a pencil sketched comic-book in live action; even more so than both Sin City and Scanner Darkly (too movies which I am very fond of it). This style really helped escalate the elements of the film to a much more in-depth level without worrying about nit-picky details.
