X-Files 3 moving forward
There's been a lot of talk lately about X-Files 3, the next possible sequel to the best "what if" TV series-turned-movie franchise. Moviehole has the dirt, and like Clint points out, this isn't a definitive yes, but it's not a no either...
Now let’s preface this news item with a bit of an avowal: David Duchovny isn’t saying there’ll be a third “X-Files” movie just that he’d like there to be one. So, even at the risk of cutting off your blood supply, keep ‘em crossed for a little while longer. We will let you know when it’s safe to unstitch your storks.
The “Californication” star tells The Daily Beast he’d be happy to hang the ‘I Want to Believe’ poster back up in his office. And he, like the fan community, believes the next film should be set in 2012 – since that date played a big part in the show’s folklore.
“As far as the X-Files movie I’d like to do next, if we get a chance to do it, would be a return to the heart and soul of the mythology, which is the alien-oriented conspiracy. I think it’s natural for The X-Files to have another movie in 2012, so we’ll see if we get to do it.”
The final date on the Mayan Calendar, 2012 is supposedly the dawning of a new kingdom, according to the followers of the Church of the Red Museum. They are supposed to have the world ready for this "new age".
In “X-Files” lore this is the planned date for the alien colonization. Assuming the aliens colonized, a shadow government planned to operate out of the Mount Weather Complex in Bluemont, Virginia, either with or against the Greys.
Meanwhile, our friends at XFilesNews.com say Frank Spotnitz will have some “good news” in the month’s ahead.
Yes, that sounds good - - but again, don’t uncross your parts yet.
