While she was unable to definitively confirm anything regarding the production, she did share her suspicions about when the cast and crew may reunite to shoot the feature.

“There’s a rumour that it’ll start shooting in November,” said Luttrell in a telephone interview on Friday evening. “That once [Stargate] Universe is done with its season production then we’ll move into it, but none of that has been confirmed.” Production on the series is still in the embryonic stages however, with none of the cast aware of the plot yet or basic details. “You know what, I wish I could [tell you about Extinction], in fact it’s sad to say but you’ve actually revealed the title to me before I knew it,” the actress admitted. “We know nothing about it, and by we, I mean my fellow actors and I. We haven’t had an opportunity to read anything or to talk with our writers about it yet.”

Stargate Atlantis stars Rachel Luttrell, Joe Flanigan, Robert Picardo, Jason Momoa and David Hewlett. The series ended its run earlier this year with the conclusion of its fifth season, making way for a new series named Stargate Universe. The final season is released onto DVD on 8 September 2009, priced at £59.99.
