Well they talked about it for years and nothing happens so far but even though creator Chris Carter, David Duchovny, and Gillian Anderson have shown interest in doing one, there’s still been no movement on it.
In a recent interview with Empire, this is what he had to say about the potential third film,
[quote]”I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head. The colonisation date has passed and that is something we wouldn’t ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology.”[/quote]
Carter then went on to say that if he does end up doing a third film he wants to cast Simon Pegg to be in it, and that be great he is a great actor and brings joy to every project he is attached with !
[quote]”Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way.”[/quote]
Will hope this will get a move on and we will see the X-Files once again … Soon.
