Video | Brad Wright talks Travelers, Screenwriting, and New Stargate

The Companion Team

Over nearly 90 packed minutes, the co-creator of Stargate SG1, Atlantis and Universe, and showrunner of Netflix’s Travelers, talks about his writing process, his favorite sci-fi books, and, of course, the eagerly anticipated fourth Stargate series. He also takes questions from two very special guests, executive producer of The Expanse and veteran of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Naren Shankar, and Dark Matter creator and Stargate producer Joseph Mallozzi.

David Lynch was contracted to direct two further Dune movies back-to-back if the first one was a success. Dune II was to be based on Frank Herbert’s second book, Dune Messiah, but Lynch admitted: “Dune III is the one that’s going to be trouble for me. I’m not wild about Children of Dune.”

It was a moot point. Butchered in the edit, Dune (1984) was a critical and commercial flop.
