After going off the air five years ago, it looks like there might actually be another “The X-Files” movie in the works.
“I’m looking at the script next week,” says former Agent Fox Mulder, AKA David Duchovny. “Gillian is on board to do it and Frank Spotnitz and Chris Carter have written the script.”
So what’s different about this movie from all the other rumors about a new “X-Files’ movie?
“They wrote a script,” deadpans David, who seems rather excited at the though of bringing the old gang back again.
“It’s been five years and I think it’s a good time to do it,” he says. “There were only two windows: Right after the show ended, which probably wouldn’t have worked (for me and Gillian) or waiting a while. I think this is a good time to do it.”
David says he thinks if everything goes the way they plan, the filming will begin this fall for a summer 2008 release.
