How long has David Duchovny been pushing for an X-Files 2 movie? Pretty much since the first hit theaters in 1998 we’ve been hearing rumor upon rumor regarding this long awaited sequel, but according to Duchovny- it’s finally happening- this December!! He also confirms that Gillian Anderson is confirmed to reprise her role as Special Agent Dana Scully. Read on for the news…
“David Duchovny’s keener to do another “X Files” movie, seemingly, than a cat is to get hold of the ingredients of a food-can.
Talking to Australia’s Empire magazine, Duchovny confirmed that the second “X Files” movie looks set to shoot in December.
“We’re all happy to do it. Gillian and I. Chris Carter. So it’s just a matter of getting everybody in the same spot. I think we’ll shoot it next winter, in December”.
Duchovny says the plan is to make the film a stand-alone supernatural thriller.
“There’s an idea in place. Chris won’t show it to anybody. I think what’s important in looking to do the show in a movie form is that it’s accessible. The first one was conspiracy-orientated, alien-orientated, and I think that alienated some people. They were like, ‘I don’t know the show, I can’t watch it.’ I think if you go at it as a supernatural thriller, then it can stand alone, on it’s own. Something like The Forgotten as very much like an X-File and you don’t need to know anything before going in. Then I think it’s more welcoming, so it’s not only for the fans but for new people who might not know the show”.”
