Frank Black movie?

10.22.2009

Millenium DVD cover

Fans of Chris Carter's other cult classic TV show Millennium have been given all sorts of reports recently about a movie revival; lance Henriksen had apparently been approached to reprise his role of Frank Black, but speculation arose that Carter would stay away from it. So the die-hard fan bunch of the self-explanatory site BacktoFrankBlack took it upon themselves to reach the source and set the record straight.

Getting in touch with the folks of Moviehole, the site's peeps reported having caught up with Carter for an interview where he claimed "..if someone called up and said 'would you consider doing a Millennium movie?' I would certainly consider doing it... I've always had an idea who'd be in that movie but I won't tell you who that is! .. It would be about sitting down with Lance figuring out how he felt."

Good to know but worthless if Frank himself isn't around... But fear not, actor Henriksen had a response when told of Carter's comments. “I'm ready to pack my bags and travel to wherever Chris is staying and talk Millennium. I'm more than willing to conspire with Chris' creativity to make this happen.” We're taking notes here, Lance. Better stick to your word!

So, who's up for  a Millennium movie?

Extra Tidbit: Can't remember where but I remember reading that originally Henriksen was supposed to play the Terminator opposite Arnie as Kyle Reese. And then he played a milk-barfing android in ALIENS...

There's only one Frank Black

Who's this bozo? I thought this would be about the Pixies' frontman. I'm totally hip. I downloaded the (500) Days of Summer soundtrack. There Comes Your Man is my jam!

AND......

Just think! If Frank Black had a Hannibal Lector type Nemesis to pursue! A trilogy of drama WORTH paying for tickets again!

great idea

ABOUT DAMN TIME!!! If they could fix that crossover with the XFiles episode and actually bring CLOSURE or get a storyline going again, I'd go EVERY year to see one if it that happened.

i always loved Millenium. So very dark, great use of music in the episodes.

I am so down for this if it happens

It would be great if they somehow tied it into the show, but even if it's about Frank trying to catch just one guy I'd still watch it.

And good to know I'm not the only one who thought of the Pixies.

re: extra tidbit

That's true. Henriksen was locked to be the Terminator (I've even seen concept drawings), and James Cameron approached Arnie for Reese. Arnie wanted the Terminator role, and so Cameron created the cop role as an apology to Henriksen.
