Second "X-Files" Movie in the Works

Second "X-Files" Movie in the Works

While promoting his upcoming Showtime series "Californication" at the TCAs on Saturday, David Duchovny said that he's supposed to see a script for a sequel to the X-Files movie next week. Stirring up years-old speculation about the project, Duchovny confirmed that "X-Files" creator "Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz wrote the screenplay and that Carter is set to direct." He also assured everyone that both he and Gillian Anderson "'are on board' the follow-up to the 1998 film and the series that ran on Fox from 1993 to 2002."

The question is, are audiences still on board? Is the "X-Files" still as relevant? Will the generation of viewers still be interested in seeing an "X-Files" movie, and will a new generation of "Heroes" and "Lost" fans enjoy seeing an "X-Files" movie?

Such great news. It's been possible for a few years, and I'm so glad it is probably happening now. It's gonna be amazing to see my favorite show come back!

i would watch it! i think it would appeal to younger people or people who didn't watch the series originally, as there are so many sci-fi type shows out there now.

I was so in love with the x-files when it aired on television but that was 5 years ago. I have pretty much all but moved on. It really depends on the trailer if I will go and see it or not but I will most definitely be renting it. That's if it is even made.

Yay!! I'm so excited about this. The show was smart and different, but most importantly, the main reason why I would tune in was because of the whole relationship, sexual tension between Mulder and Scully. Nothing like it in the history of television I dare say. Hell, yes I'm going to see it. God I really hope this is true.
