Even while the long-gestured The X-Files: I Want to Believe was one of the biggest disappointments since Alien vs. Predator (both Fox films; coincidence?), I still find myself clamoring for more mysterious to be solved by FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). The previous film featured A LOT of talking by both stars about their willingness to uncover another “X-File”, which eventually did happen. Two and a half years later, it all begins again. Details inside.
David Duchovny wants to make another “X-Files” movie, so says Show Biz Spy.
The Hollywood actor says he’s keen to reprise his role as Agent Fox Mulder for a third flick in the franchise.
“I’m always game. It always rides on Fox. [Chris Carter] is game. I know [Gillian Anderson] is game. We all, at this point, love the show. We all, at this point, would love to work with one another again. We’re all good friends and miss one another, and miss working together.
“We worked together so hard for so long, so closely. We had some ups and downs personally, sure. But in the end, they are really like family to me. We’re all like this little X-Files family and I, for one, would love to continue. And I think there’s a lot left in the show. You know? And I think we can continue to make good movies.
“It’s just a matter of spending enough on a movie that can compete in the summertime. We made a movie and released it in the summer, but it wasn’t really a blockbuster movie. And it got kind of overshadowed by the bigger ones. So, we’re saying, make us big. We’ll fight with the big boys.”
