  David Duchovny | The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, 11. August 2006

Now tell me about the X-Files sequel. It's august already! Are they gonna do one?

It's getting late, yeah. I've come out here so many times now and said that we were gonna do one, so I'm gonna do that again.
It looks like it'll happen?
We don't have a date, but all the principal people want to do it. I don't want to be the boy who cried "Wolf!" ... or "[[|20th Centruy Fox|Fox]]!".


  David Duchovny | United Press International, 10. August 2006 | Quelle

Actor David Duchovny said in New York he would like to star in another film based on his Fox TV sci-fi/mystery TV series, "The X-Files." Created by Chris Carter and co-starring Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the show originally ran from 1993 through 2002 and spawned a 1998 film version, called "The X-Files." Asked if a sequel is in the works, Duchovny said, "It's always on the horizon."

"I'm still very much in touch with Chris Carter, Gillian. Both Gillian and I are positive about it. It's not like we're running from it," he said. "There are some legal things that need to be resolved over at Fox." Although no script has been written yet for a sequel, "There is an idea," Duchovny said.

David Duchovny confirms new “X-Files” movie

Before the cameras roll (presumably next year), Duchovny said, “There are some issues apparently that have to be resolved, but they’re not creative. I think that they’re financial.” [...]

Asked about the casting for the feature, who beyond he and Anderson would return ... ?

“I would think that Mitch [Pileggi] who plays Skinner would probably be there. If it wasn’t conspiracy-based, alien-based, then I don’t think that you’d have the villains, the Smoking Man and all of that.”

What will a new “The X-Files” feature be – the first part of a planned trilogy like the Batman and Superman revivals?

“Well, I think that at this point since it’s been four years off the air I think that you have to re-establish what it is. I think that there has to be some of that. There has to be some back story, and you want to make it for people who have never seen it.”

That means a self-contained first episode?

“Yeah. I think that it should be a case. I don’t think that it should necessarily involve aliens although I’m sure that will somehow work it’s way into the story. But I think that it should be - like ‘Silence of the Lambs’ would’ve been a great ‘X-File’ film. Like that. I think that it has to be a thriller that could really stand on its own, and just happens to be with these characters that we know.”

And as far as the X-F movie? I have no f****** clue. I think there's still a law suit, as far as I know the script has not been written, and as much as we all want it to take place as soon as possible, AND YES THAT INCLUDES ME, AND ALWAYS HAS, SO STOP WITH THE NONSENSE! It is out of my hands. Completely. Write to Fox guys, tell them to make it happen!


  David Duchovny | Parade, 6. August 2006 | Quelle

I asked David about the possibility of another X-Files movie. "I think it could work very well as a sequel, an authentic franchise that will hold up-much more so than Mission: Impossible."

So, will there be sequel?
"Yes", he said. "We're all signed on."

Another X-Files movie is still in development.


  Rob Bowman | SciFi Wire, 5. Juli 2006 | Quelle

Rob Bowman, who directed the 1998 movie version of The X-Files, told SCI FI Wire that he's open to helming a follow-up—but that he hasn't been asked yet. "I would be honored to direct it," Bowman said in an interview while promoting Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King, the upcoming TNT anthology series. "The only thing is I can't ask myself to do it. That's up to [The X-Files creator] Chris [Carter] and the studio. I've always said—and I've always believed, most importantly—I can't wait to see that film. If I'm invited to participate as a director, great, and if I'm not, that would be fine, too."

[...]

"It's Chris' show, and David [Duchovny] and Gillian [Anderson] are the face of the show," Bowman said. "If it's not me, I can live happily knowing that I had my great time on the show. If I do get it, hey, man, I'm going to kill myself making the best movie I possibly can."

What’s the X-FILES movie status?

My deal has been done for a really long time and David Duchovny, Chris Carter and Gillian Anderson all have deals. There are legal issues between Chris and the studio relating to the old show that are holding everything up. It has nothing to do with the deal with the movie, it has to do with the TV series. The movie will not happen until and unless he resolves those issues I’m hoping he will soon so we can get to work on it. We would all love to do it still.

Do you still think there is an X-FILES audience?
I would like to think if you do good work, people would come out and see it. Those are such great characters and David and Gillian are so perfect in those roles and we have a really scary story for those characters to operate in?

Does it deal with the "M" word?
It’s not an alien mythology conspiracy type movie, it’s a stand-alone movie. I’ve never pretended I can handicap commercial success in anything I do, all I can do is do good work and hope that we find an audience.

You’re relaunching a franchise so to speak, like a James Bond movie almost.
Obviously we need to catch up where the characters are in their lives now, what they’ve been doing since the series ended. It could easily be a series of stand-alone movies, and that’s what I would love it to become.

Would you still have to deal with messier aspects of the John Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish) since they were so pivotal in the last two seasons?
We haven’t figured out what we were going to do there. I would love to include those characters and pay homage to the past of the series, but the thing is, you don’t want to encumber the movie with a lot of expository stuff you’ve got to put in there to allude to the old show. As much as possible, I would like to honor the series without encumbering the movie.

Okay, so even though you have a deal, and everything is still up in the air, if this happened, when would it happen or is it a nebulous thing?
They might never resolve the issues and so the movie might not ever happen. I would think that if they resolve the issues, we would go immediately.

So... what can you tell us about the second X-Files movie?

My deal has been done for almost two years. Actually, I think I was the first one to close the deal, and it took some time for David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and Chris Carter to close their deals as well. And now, there are these legal issues that have emerged between Chris and [20th Century Fox] over the television series. I don't know exactly what those issues are and when and if they will be resolved, but I don't think the movie can go forth until they are.

Have you guys mapped out the plot yet?
Yeah, we went in and pitched the story a year and a half ago. We've worked out most of it. We haven't written a script yet, but we're ready to go if and when.

But no conspiracy stuff, right?
Yeah, I think that was one of the big appeals of doing a movie — to not be constrained by the mythology. Nine years was a long time to stretch out the mythology of the series, and the first movie had to deal with it because it was sandwiched between two seasons of the TV show. It will catch up to the characters where they are now. We'll address whatever period of time has elapsed between the end of the series and the current moment.

Does that include disclosing the whereabouts of Mulder and Scully's baby?
Well, the way it was left at the very end was that they had just given up the child and they were fugitives from the FBI, so we'll have to address where they're living and whether they're still in a fugitive state.


  Frank Spotnitz | Sci Fi Wire, 19. Mai 2006 | Quelle

Frank Spotnitz, the mastermind behind much of the mythology of The X-Files, told SCI FI Wire that he has signed on to help write the next movie based on the hit series, but that the new movie won't deal with the show's byzantine conspiracy arc. "There's still a very good chance that we will all do another X-Files movie," Spotnitz said in an interview. Spotnitz was an executive producer on the show, which starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson; it ended its nine-year run in 2002.

One point of contention in getting a second X-Files film off the ground: Series creator Chris Carter is still wrangling with 20th Century Fox over legal matters. "David, Gillian and I, and even Chris Carter, all have deals in place, and once the legal issues are over with, we will go on with it," Spotnitz said. "I'm hoping it will get resolved soon."

Although the script isn't written, the idea is already developed, Spotnitz said. He added that Fox likes the idea, which harkens back to the series' stand-alone episodes rather than the conspiracy to cover up the existence of extra-terrestrials, which was the subject of the first X-Files movie.

"No, we're not going into the mythology [in the sequel]," Spotnitz said. "One of the things that was exciting about doing it is to not make it a mythology story, and it's like one of the stand-alone episodes. It's a bit scary. Of course, we will catch up with the characters and what is going on in their lives, but it's not about the alien conspiracy. It's not about that." The first X-Files movie came out in 1998.

I actually have a deal, believe it or not, to co-write and co-produce with Chris Carter. And David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have deals; I think even Chris Carter has a deal. There's some legal issues pending between Chris and 20th Century Fox relating to the old TV show. So I'm hoping that those will get resolved and that we can still do it because we'd love to.


  Chris Carter | US Dreamwatch #18, März 2006

Amid the development of those two movies (his other movie projects), there’s been far more talk of another possible project you’ve been linked to: the second X-Files movie. Are you tired of being asked about your progress on that film yet?
Chris Carter: (Laughs) I’m not so much tired as just somewhat confused by why it hasn’t happened yet. Actually, it’s not even confusion-it’s frustration. FS and I worked many months coming up with a nice story for the movie and I know everyone wants to do it. There seems to be a lot of excitement about the film. I think what has happened is that there are business considerations in the way. That’s really the impediment. Fox is sensibly looking at how much business the original movie did and they want to make the next The X-Files movie for a price, That’s fine and well, it’s

just the price of movie production has gone up since we made the first film, so everyone has to factor in what kind of movie we want to make and whether we can make it for the money they want to make it for.
Are you planning to direct the second X-Files movie?
Chris Carter: There’s been talk of that, but the script hasn’t been written yet and who knows if the film will happen for sure…. But I can say that I do want to be able to direct it if I so choose.


  Gillian Anderson | TV Guide, 6-12. Februar 2006

When it comes to the long-awaited second "X-Files" feature film, the truth is out there - and it ain't good. The latest setback? Franchise creator Chris Carter recently filed a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox over the show's profits. "Everyone's [movie] deal is done - mine, David Duchovny's and Gillian Anderson's - but Chris' is not," says former X-Files producer Frank Spotnitz, who cooked up the sequel's story with Carter. "And I can't imagine that his deal will get completed until this legal dispute is resolved. My hope is that we can make this movie while people still care." The actress formerly known as Scully still cares, but her patience is wearing thin. "It's frustrating because we have no control," says Emmy winner Anderson, who, with the exception of some film work and PBS' current "Bleak House" adaptation, has maintained a relatively low profile since the X-Files series ended, in 2002. "It just seems like whoever is involved should do whatever it takes to make it happen." And the sooner the better, considering Anderson has a project lined up that could further delay the "X" flick. "I've been talking about having another child," said the 37-year-old and recently remarried mother of one, daughter Piper, 11. "And I don't want to be anywhere near the pregnancy when I'm [shooting] it."

Are you involved at all in the second "X-Files" feature film?
As for "X-Files 2," as I've said here and elsewhere, my deal to write and produce alongside Chris Carter has been done for a long time.


  Frank Spotnitz | TV Guide, 3. Februar 2006

If and when the film does get made, Spotnitz confirms that it'll be a self-contained story and not steeped in the show's dense mythology. "The first movie had to be about the mythology of the show," he explains. "But this doesn't have to be about the mythology of the show. It can just be a really good scary movie."


  Gillian Anderson | Newsday, 29. Januar 2006 | Quelle

Speaking of "The X-Files," there's talk that there will be another "X-Files" film. True?
Eventually there will be, we hope there is going to be.
Yet the series ended in 2002, and the "X-Files" movie was released in 1998. At this point in time ...
Who gives a --? The longer we wait, the less people are going to give a --. It was supposed to be shot this year, and there are contract issues. We're basically ready to go.
Do you think the fan base is still salivating for a new film?
Every once in awhile I hear that they are. But next year? We're not even going to be able to shoot it until next September at the very earliest. By the time it comes out it's going to be 2007.


  Gillian Anderson | Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 15. Januar 2006 | Quelle

The one Hollywood movie she hopes to do is a sequel to the 1998 'X Files' film. "David and I and (creator) Chris Carter are determined to do it," Anderson said. But due to certain rights issues, "It's become a bit messy. I think the intention is that we will and we hope to - and that, hopefully, by the time we actually do, whenever that is, people will still give a damn."
