CARTER SAYS X-FILES 2 TALKS IN PROGRESS
Variety talked to The X-Files creator Chris Carter who says that Special Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Special Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) might soon reunite on the big screen for a sequel to 1998's The X-Files: Fight the Future, which collected $189 million at the worldwide box office.
'Frank (Spotnitz) and I have worked out a story, and there's a negotiation with (Fox) going on,' he said, adding he's also in development on two other potential features.
Carter and Spotnitz both worked on the first film's story. This latest bit comes after recent news from UK's Teletext which spoke to David Duchovny about the possibility of a second film.
'We're all on the same page,' Duchovny said. 'Gillian Anderson wants to do it, I want to do it, Chris Carter, who would write and produce the film, wants to do it and I believe Fox the studio wants to do it. When you have the four major players in the enterprise wanting to do it, it will happen. It's just a matter of when. I hope it happens within the next year.'
The 43-year-old star quit the TV show before it was cancelled, but said he was keen to play Mulder again. 'I think it would be fun at this point, a few years removed, to get back into it and do it.'
