Gillian Anderson recently took part in a AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread on Reddit and was inevitably questioned about progress on a third X-Files film.
The actress, who has previously said she’d jump onboard a new movie, was asked what fans could do to push 20th Century Fox into making a new movie.
She said: “I would say that there is a very good chance that Chris is in the process of writing it, and as with any creative endeavor, it needs time and space and patience, and I have no doubt that at some point, when it’s the right time, and he is happy with it, it will see the light of day, and that will be the beginning.”
Last month, David Duchovny appeared on The Tonight Show and urged fans to write to the film studio asking for the green light on a new movie.
“[Creator] Chris Carter and [co-star] Gillian Anderson and I, we’re always on board,” he explained. He then told the audience: “You want to write Fox and get them going. You could wheel me [out]. I’ll play Fox Mulder forever.”
Do you want to see a new X-Files movie? Should it focus on the mythology of the show or as a standalone like I Want to Believe? As ever, let us know your thoughts.
