It almost seems like Chris Carter appears in a quote about a possible X-Files sequel just to remain relevant. There are many who crave any opportunities to see Scully and Mulder (and Skinner!) together again, myself included. I love the show and find both films to have plenty of merit to justify existing. So when Carter talks, I’m one who’s listening.
The latest missive comes via The Hollywood Reporter and while there’s a little smoke there all it tells us is that Carter and his leads are game for a third film that sticks to the main mythology and that he’d like to include Simon Pegg as well. This reeks as an attempt to remind 20th Century Fox what they have. There’s so much noise out there it’s hard to think it’ll get enough traction.
Can I just say that it would be amazing if Carter and Vince Gilligan co-wrote this?
