Bone Chilling Arctic Adventure Shoot Aboard U.S. Navy Submarine at North Pole for MGM's New 'Stargate: Continuum'

LOS ANGELES, March 14 -- Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM) is teaming with the U.S. Navy to capture a series of bone chilling adventure scenes for the Studio's upcoming "Stargate SG-1" direct-to-video, "Stargate: Continuum." Cast members, including Ben Browder ("Stargate SG1's" Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell) and Amanda Tapping (Lt. Col. Samantha Carter) will travel to the sub-zero climate of the Arctic to shoot at the Navy's Applied Physics Laboratory Ice Station (APLIS) for the week of March 23 through 29. Martin Wood, Director of over 70 "Stargate SG-1" and "Stargate Atlantis" episodes, is confirmed to direct "Stargate: Continuum."

"Stargate: Continuum," which is being co-financed by MGM and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, will shoot a variety of scenes on location in the Arctic ice, located approximately 200 nautical miles north of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. In addition to the frigid outdoor environments, the filming will also involve U.S. Navy submarine USS Alexandria (SSN-757). Among the most visually stunning and dramatic scenes to be filmed at the location involves the submarine as it bursts through the ice and into the cold Arctic air with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees below zero.

In making the announcement, Charles Cohen, Senior Executive Vice President Finance and Corporate Development, MGM said: "We are excited to be working with the U.S. Navy on filming these epic scenes in the arduous conditions of the arctic. 'SG-1' fans will certainly enjoy these action packed sequences as the 'Stargate' franchise has a rich history of unique and compelling action adventures."

Lt. Erik Reynolds, the Department of Defense project officer assigned to the movie added: "We look forward to hosting MGM and the 'Stargate' team at APLIS, and showcasing our sailors and the United States Submarine Force's capabilities in the Arctic Ocean.

"With the extreme environmental conditions at the camp, and factors such as shooting on a moving sheet of ice and the occasional polar bear, it certainly will be a challenge, but one that our sailors and the 'SG-1' crew look forward to taking on."

In January of this year, MGM gave the green light to two (2) direct-to-video movies based on "Stargate SG-1," the longest-running science-fiction series in U.S. TV history. The first movie, "Stargate: The Arc of Truth," which is also being co-financed by MGM and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, begins production on April 15. The second movie, "Stargate: Continuum" which will feature the epic ice camp scenes, will resume filming on May 22. Written and produced by Brad Wright and Robert Cooper, the new movies will include the following "Stargate SG-1" cast members: Ben Browder, Amanda Tapping, Chris Judge, Claudia Black, with Beau Bridges and Michael Shanks.

The APLIS is operated by the University of Washington and was formed in 1943 at the request of the U.S. Navy to bring university resources to bear on urgent WWII defense problems. From a wartime beginning focused on effective torpedo exploders, APL-UW initiated acoustic studies and oceanographic research programs to understand how variations in the ocean environment affected the performance of Navy systems.

About "Stargate: Continuum"

While "SG-1" attends the execution of Ba'al, the last of the goa'uld system lords, Teal'c and Vala inexplicably disappear into thin air. Carter, Daniel and Mitchell race back to a world where history has been changed: the Stargate program has been erased from the timeline. As they try to convince the authorities of what's happened, a fleet of goa'uld motherships arrives in orbit, led by Ba'al, his queen, Katesh (Vala) and his first prime, Teal'c. SG-1 must find the Stargate and set things right before the world is enslaved by the goa'uld.
