Chris Carter says he has an idea for a third X-Files movie

August 28th, 2013 by bash Comments

X-Files creator Chris Carter has been speaking to Empire about the possibility of a third X-Files movie.

Alongside stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, Carter and his two leading actors have all said they’d love to make another one but indicated that it was down to 20th Century Fox if it would get made.

“I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together,” he told Empire. “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.”

In addition to this news, Carter said he may have a role for Simon Pegg, who is a fan of the franchise.

“Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie and told me that he was a big fan,” he continued. “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.”

What do you guys think? Do you want to see a third X-Files movie? Should Simon Pegg appear in it?

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
