Duchovny And Anderson Up For Another “X-Files” Movie

October 15, 2013

The stars of Fox‘s classic science fiction series, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, told the New York Comic-Con crowd that they want another X-FILES movie, The Wrap reports.

All the principals are on board,” including “X-Files” creator Chris Carter, Duchovny said during a panel discussion at a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the series’ premiere at the The Paley Center for Media in New York Saturday.

Gillian and I want to do it, so it’s really up to Twentieth Century Fox at this point.

Anderson told fans that if they want another film they should let their voices be heard.

If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that, then I guess that’s what it would be,” she said.

The original X Files made $189 million worldwide in 1998 and the 2008 follow-up The X-Files: I Want to Believe brought in $68 million at the global box office.

I’d like to think that a third X-Files movie is possible. For over the past decade, Hollywood has loved making remakes and sequels to established franchises. The X-Files is a recognizable brand that has a fan base. If the actors and fans are begging for another, it’d be dumb not to make one. All the fans have to do is  show up to the theaters and show their support.
