David Hewlett takes over the geeks

Before you non-Stargate fans start mocking, you might want to take another look at what David Hewlett (Rodney McKay) is up to these days. I think he’s trying to become Joss Whedon, or something, and take over the geeks.

In a long-delayed update to his site, David confirms the following geek-inspired projects in the works:

  • Starcrossed – A comedy series pilot for SciFi that pokes fun at making sci-fi series
  • Design of the Dead – A new film that crosses zombies and home design shows (I know a few CJers who would like this one)
  • Heir of the Dog – A sequel to A Dog’s Breakfast. We’ll see how many more Vancouver-area sci-fi actors he can talk into appearing, this time.

Speaking of A Dog’s Breakfast, there are finally a few international release dates for that one. So check his latest blog to see if your country is there, yet.

For the Gate geeks, he reports that he’s quite happy with how Season 5 looks, so far. Although the battle of the multi-colored scripts rages on. (I forsee a scene in Starcrossed!)
