Sequel Rumor Round-Up: Duchovny Talks "X-Files 2," Boyle Suggests "28 Months Later"?

by | March 29, 2007 | Comments

David Duchovny’s doing some sequel talk. Nope, this isn’t about the long hoped-for second installments in the "Return to Me" and "Trust the Man" sagas; rather, as IGN Movies reports (via IESB.net), Duchovny is saying he and Gillian Anderson are wrapping up negotiations to reprise their roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in a sequel to 1998’s "X-Files: Fight the Future."
At first glance, this might seem like a case of "too little, too late," but you never know; although the original film probably confused (or unintentionally amused) as many viewers as it entertained, it’s never wise to underestimate the persistence and undying optimism of the sci-fi audience. Getting viewers to believe the truth is still out there could be as simple as the right script.

Duchovny’s been down this road before, of course — he was in negotiations for the sequel a couple of years ago, and a screenplay was commissioned in 2006, neither of which resulted in getting the movie out of development hell — so this could just be more of the same. Only time will tell.

In other sequel news, "28 Weeks Later" won’t reach theaters until May 11, but director Danny Boyle is already on the promotional circuit talking about a potential third chapter in the story begun with 2003’s "28 Days Later." There’s a plot spoiler in Moviehole’s report, so read carefully if you don’t want to know specifics about Boyle’s rumored plans, but if movies about the horrible aftermath of a rampaging virus are your thing, this should be very happy news indeed.
