Gillian Anderson on board for another X-Files movie, has a strange request

09.07.2011

I know there are a die-hard contingent of X-Files fans still out there, but I'm not sure that even they're really clamoring for another movie at this point. But rumors keep surfacing of a third film, and now Gillian Anderson has added to fuel to the fire by saying that she's totally on board.

“I hope it will happen, there’s talk of it,” she told Australian breakfast TV program Sunrise. “I don’t know who’s writing it but I hear there’s something going on,” she said.

Well that sounds conclusive. But stranger still, Anderson had an additional request when it comes to the series.

“I’ve always wanted to do a spoof of the X Files as a film,” she said. “We talked about that for a long time but maybe after three features we could get to do a spoof feature.”

Hah, what? She wants to do a spoof of the X-Files? Who requests that? That's like Gerard Butler saying he wants to star in MEET THE SPARTANS. You don't generally spoof your own stuff do you? I'm sure it's been done, but no examples are coming to mind presently.

So uh, do you want a third X-Files movie, or an X-Files spoof?

Extra Tidbit: I'm still stuck in season one. One of my many shows I still have yet to get through.

I want a GOOD X-Files movie. My wife and I recently watched the latest attempt and were extremely disappointed.

Stick with aliens . . . leave the psychics alone.

X-Files 3 HAS to be made

After Carter screwed up the last picture, they just have to give him one last chance to tie the whole thing up.
Going off the quest story was totally fine. But the idea he came up with for the second movie, especially after waiting 10 years for it, was pathetic. Apart from the lack of marketing.

Eh, a third film might be pushing it, but they really need to wrap this series up. Neither the series finale nor the second movie did a thing to put any kind of finality on it, so I might watch the film just for that. As for a spoof, no. Spoofing the X-files is like ten years old and was overplayed years ago. So, wth has Gillian been up to anyway. She used to be a fantasy woman for so many, and then after the X-files, she just sort of disappeared.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Gremlins 2 spoofed Gremlins. Phoebe Cates even parodied her own character in one scene. I read that it was director Joe Dante's idea to do a spoof sequel. Definitely one of my favorite sequels and i remember thinking that Cloverfield spoof sequel would be kind of interesting.

Yes, yes, yes!!!

Granted the last movie wasn't the big screen adventure most of us wanted but I hope they do make a third movie to wrap up the 2012 storyline that they set up in the finale, but to be honest time is running out so FOX need to take their finger out and get moving

Man... I hope so

(Actually, a spoof sounds like it might be entertaining) But what I'd actually like to see is for them to go really BIG. Pull out the stops with the story. Have Spender return as a zombie. Resurrect the Lone Gunmen. Have Skinner shooting people in the face. Bring back Frank Black, Reyes, Doggett, Krycek, Agent Fowley, Knowles, the alien bounty hunter, The Well Manicured Man, and Mr X for a no-holds-barred, X-files movie cagematch!

Extra tidbit: Rather than watching full seasons, watch the mythology episodes, all separated on four DVD box-sets, their the better episodes anyways.

X-Files 3 ..... Yes Please

Oh, yes. To see Mulder and Scully on the big screen again, I'll be there. How about a Scully nude scene?

Make it so

Just make sure 'John Gilnitz' writes the bulk of it this time out as Carter lost his midas touch years ago. And they've already done numerous meta-fictional spoofs already in the show. Just look at any episode written by the great Darin Morgan, or Hollywood AD.

X-Fools!

First of all, I used to be a HUGE X-Files geek, so yes, I'm down for a third movie, as long as it's about aliens and the main X-Files and conspiracy mythos!

Also, am I the only one who remembers a PC game called "X-Fools" that was released years before the official X-Files game (which I still own for the PSOne, LOL)? It was a parody of the show and it was made by the same guy that made Pyst, the Myst Parody... See, I told you I was an X-Files geek!

Extra Tidbit: Man, if you're still stuck in season 1, just put the dvd down and walk away. The show just isn't for you. There's no sense in forcing yourself to like it, just because your friends like it or due to the extraordinary love it gets from its fans.
As for a 3rd film, I think most of us came to the conclusion that part 2 was just a stand alone and part 3 would be the actual finale of the mythology. Knowing this, it wasn't a question of if it would come out, but when would it come

Richard Crenna

Did a great job of spoofing his own Trautman character in Hot Shots. Well, I say spoofing, he basically just did Trautman again, but in a comedy movie instead of action.

Of course. It's a classic. That was written by Vince Gilligan (creator of Breaking Bad).

The last one

was such a piece of crap. that wouldnt have even been a good episode, let alone a movie. I'd still watch another one though.

Linda Blair spoofed 'The Exorcist' in 'Repossessed.' And Bruce Willis showed up as McClaine in 'Loaded Weapon 1' - a cameo though

As an X-phile, Id be down for one more movie. They always had 2012 set as the date for the alien invasion and would like to see a movie wrap everything up. I was one of the few who enjoyed the last movie a lot. My only fear is that its beens some 12 yrs since the show has been off the air and don't think it can garner the audience that it would have 10 yrs ago.

@Tidbit: Keeep going with it. Season 1 is slow till the end, season 2 it starts to pick up and seasons 3-6 are the gems of the
