Who's Ready for an "X-Files" Sequel?

by | May 19, 2006 | Comments

"X-Files" writer Frank Spotnitz seems pretty certain that a second movie version of the cult TV series will happen … eventually. But there’s still the issue of a lawsuit between Fox and X-Creator Chris Carter that has to be ironed out first.

From Sci-Fi Wire: "One point of contention in getting a second "X-Files" film off the ground: Series creator Chris Carter is still wrangling with 20th Century Fox over legal matters. "David, Gillian and I, and even Chris Carter, all have deals in place, and once the legal issues are over with, we will go on with it," Spotnitz said. "I’m hoping it will get resolved soon."

Although the script isn’t written, the idea is already developed, Spotnitz said. He added that Fox likes the idea, which harkens back to the series’ stand-alone episodes rather than the conspiracy to cover up the existence of extra-terrestrials, which was the subject of the first X-Files movie."
