While on the set of his new spy-themed TV show “Hunted” (starring Melissa George) TheX-Files writer Frank Spotnitz discussed his strong desire to do a new film in the series. Despite a perceived lack of audience interest.
He told Screen Daily, “There is a very active and relentless fan campaign for a last movie. I do feel like it would be a terrible shame if that didn’t happen. It feels wrong not to give it an ending around the alien colonisation of earth. David [Duchovny] and Gillian [Anderson] feel the same. I have a clear idea of how it would go and I’ve been talking to Chris Carter about it for a long time. I’ll keep banging the drum whenever I meet the Fox guys.”
The article makes it sound like he’s campaigning for a sequel to 1998’s Fight The Future and not 2008’s I Want To Believe, which is a wise move. Except that the 2008 film only grossed $20M compared to the original’s $83M (not adjusted for inflation). Can they get people interested in X-Files again? Or will the series just be rebooted 20 years from now a la Dark Shadows?
