    Roland Emmerich Planning Elaborate Reboot/Sequel Trilogy For 'Stargate'

    When it comes to the films of Roland Emmerich, the German director who has immigrated to Hollywood to become the premiere purveyor of large-scale destruction, it doesn't get much better than 1994's "Stargate." A movie that combined ancient aliens theorizing with old-fashioned adventure, the film (th...

    Earlier this summer, "White House Down" director Roland Emmerich said that Will Smith would most likely not be back for "Independence Day 2," the big budget sequel to his beloved sci-fi flick.
