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

August 28th, 2013 by Marc 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?

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….
