Talk of a third film to give The X-Files an ending befitting of the classic sci-fi series continues. The decision of whether or not to pursue said third movie lies in the hands of FOX, but this hasn’t dampened creator Chris Carter‘s spirits one bit. He was again talking up a third movie, this time with Empire,
I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head. The colonisation date has passed and that is something we wouldn’t ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology.
A flick that would further explore and perhaps give some kind of ending to X-Files‘ confusing mythology is exactly what’s needed. That second movie was just filler and a real waste of fans’ time.
But how does Simon Pegg fit into all of this? Apparently Carter was interested in getting him involved with the second film,
Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way.
Do you believe X-Files deserves one more shot? Should it be as movie? I was just thinking a mini-series might suit the property better, but then, what do I know? What of including Pegg along with Anderson and David Duchovny?
