Scully Chimes In On "X-Files" Sequel

by | April 3, 2007 | Comments

It’s been about a decade since "The X-Files" jumped from the small to the silver screen, and we’ve heard little rumblings about a sequel ever since then. After David Duchovny let slip last weekend about another big-screen installment underway, there’s more chatter to solidify the rumors.

Apparently the big hurdle was a lawsuit between "X-Files" creator Chris Carter and Fox, but it seems that the litigation is now finished with, and that several involved parties are now hot to get a new movie movin’.

Last weekend we reported Duchovny’s own rumblings on the sequel, and now it appears he was dead on about Carter and Co. talking business to get the project rolling. He also mentioned that production may be sped up to avoid a fast approaching 2008 strike.

While discussing a new movie called "Straightheads" with Empire Magazine, "X-Files: Fight the Future" star Gillian Anderson admitted that nothing has been signed just yet, but also that she suspects a sequel might soon become a reality. "They’re starting to talk about doing a feature again … Every year or two they talk about it again, but it seems like it might be for real this time. Somehow it seems like somebody’s really serious about it. I know that Chris’ lawsuit with Fox is over, so maybe now it can be done."

The fanboy-fave redhead also opined that a new Mulder & Scully adventure might forgo the established series mythology in favor of a "stand-alone" horror story — which would make this semi-fan a lot more excited to see the sequel.
