There’s been some talk recently about another new X-Files movie. David Duchovny gave an interview saying that he wants another X-Films film to happen.
During a panel at the Toronto Fan Expo this last Sunday, Gillian Anderson showed up and was asked if we would see the third movie… this was her response,
I met with [series creator Chris Carter] before coming here and it’s looking pretty good.
Hell yeah! I’m excited to see that all of this thinking about making a new X-Files movie has turned into an actual discussion! It’s awesome to see that all of the main players are on board and that they’re talking to each other about making it a reality, now all we need is for Fox to want to make it as well. Here’s what Duchovny previously had to say about another X-Files movie,
That book doesn’t close until somebody dies, really. One of the greatnesses of the show was its open-endedness. It was about possibility. It wasn’t about closure. It just couldn’t be. There is no such thing as that story ever ending. Those characters are forever searching. That’s what they do. Even if we’re not watching them, they’re out there, in some dimension. Mulder and Scully are still doing their thing ‘cause that’s their nature.
I would love to do another film, or more. I think we’re all game for it. I know I’m kind of perplexed that Fox isn’t more [enthusiastic]. Here’s a homegrown property that you don’t have to go buy, like fuckin’ Green Lantern or something, to make it. Here you’ve got an actual action franchise that’s your own.
It is one of my favorite shows back in the day and I still do watch some episodes on DVD and can’t wait for the new movie to come out!
