Update! Latino Review got in touch with Duchovny’s reps who claimed that TV Mag got it wrong – he didn’t confirm an “X-Files 3″ script.
It’s not all bad news though, Frank Spotnitz, the EP of the unremittingly popular ’90s series, posted on his blog that he can neither confirm or deny Duchovny’s comments, suggesting that there may still be something in the works. Spotnitz’s words “I wish I could say more” might just keep fans at bay.
Despite the lackluster performance of the last film in the franchise, Fox may yet give “The X-Files” another run on the big screen.
Speaking to France’s TV Mag, star David Duchovny said a script for a third “X-Files” movie – following “X-Files : Fight the Future” and “X-Files : I want to Believe” – is being written. The studio, however, hasn’t agreed to make the movie… yet.
“It is being written. One awaits just the green light from Fox, a little disappointed from the relatively poor reception of the second film. The error comes, in my opinion, that the authors strayed too far from the roots of the series. Moreover, the film was released in the summer. The third will be much closer to what the public expects, with government conspiracies, etc. “
A third “X-Files” film would assumingly reunite director Chris Carter and stars Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.
