With the X-Files back next week (hard to believe, right?) Chris Carter, creator of the series, has been talking about what might come after the new limited-series.

On Fox’s Television Critics Association panel, Carter says the second movie, I Want to Believe, was not the wisest idea: “We tried to do a very small movie about faith the second time out. And it was released in the middle of summer tentpole movies. It was a misstep in that way. I think [a third movie] has to be more like the first movie.”

Wait, a third movie? Could that happen?

Well, he thinks so: “I actually wrote a third movie, just because I was interested in the idea of where that might go,” he said, adding that it might belong on TV rather than the big screen: “I let my wife read the third movie, and she said ‘I think not for television,’”.  So maybe not.

He wrapped up by saying that the script is there is FOX want it…

what say you all? Do you want another Chris Carter written X-Files movie?

Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
