How Andy Garcia got David Duchovny all wet…

Mulder’s now on the case of the mysterious ‘Phantom’.

David Duchovny (“The X-Files”, “Californication”) has joined Ed Harris and William Fichtner in the submarine thriller “Phantom”. Duchovny replaces, strangely enough (since they’re not at all alike), Andy Garcia in the movie. Natascha McElhone, who stars with Duchovny on TV’s “Californication”, is also onboard the film.

Todd Robinson (“Lonely Hearts”) directs the film, set on a submarine during the Cold War, which is based on his own script.

Variety says of Duchovny’s role :

Duchovny will portray the leader of the Soviet special forces team aboard the submarine, whose mission is cloaked in mystery.

RCR Media came onboard to co-finance and produce “Phantom” in August and has secured domestic distribution with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisition Group.

What a great band of actors though – Duchovny, Harris, Fichtner, even with Robinson (not a big fan) helming, the film is sure to be atleast tolerable considering the cast.
