You know I never was a fan of the X-Files until it moved to Sunday nights and then I started watching it like crazy. I mean seriously who was home to watch that show on Friday nights? Well after the success of the first movie, it seems as everyone has been speculating that the second one is close to filming, and while it might still be close there is still nothing confirmed other then David Duchovny and producer Frank Spotnitz both believe the second one is close. Which I find odd, considering there isn’t even a script yet. Check out the interview inside.
Dark Horizons reports,
Seems a fan ran into David Duchovny at a benefit on October 2 and asked him what’s the status of the next X-Files movie. Duchovny seemed really positive about it being completed in the next year and out in theatres in two years. Was he correct? Here’s what Spotnitz says:
“I’m happy to confirm – as David [Duchovny] has in several interviews – that the rumors about a second X-Files feature film are true. In fact, the studio approached us about doing another feature way back in the summer of 2001, before the ninth and final season of the series was even broadcast.
I can’t speak to the accuracy of the timetable you outline above, but I can tell you that Chris and I have been working on the story for some time. If and when contract negotiations with the studio are finally concluded, we will get to work on the script right away”
