A delay in the production of Stargate: Extinction, the movie featuring the cast of the cancelled series, Stargate Atlantis, has provided the opportunity for a crossover show featuring two stars from Stargate Atlantis and the cast of the current Stargate Universe.

On the Syfy Channel’s Blastr news site, Stargate producer Joseph Mallozzi announced that the Stargate Atlantis/Stargate Universe crossover had been greenlit, but he refused to disclose any details about when the show would air or which Atlantis characters would crossover, though he did indicate that contracts for the show had been signed with at least two stars from the Atlantis series.
