X-Files 2 talk

03.28.2007
For some reason I thought David Duchovny would make a successful transition from TV to feature films, but aside from a wry turn in ZOOLANDER, it's basically been snake eyes thus far. So it's both depressing and amusing that he's the first to discuss a return to the role he previously seemed very interested in leaving behind, FBI spook hunter Fox Mulder on THE X-FILES.

Duchovny recently told IESB that everyone (not including replacement agent Robert Patrick, apparently) is in "final negotiations" for a second X-FILES movie -- you may recall an ongoing dispute regarding the distribution of finances among the principals. He also claimed that despite not currently having a completed script, the new movie will eschew alien conspiracies and be a straight supernatural thriller, and could start shooting in 2008. If they also can somehow erase the last 3 or 4 tragic seasons of the series from my memory, I might actually be interested. Mulder's sister was turned to starlight by the "walk-ins"? What's that bullshit?

The former extraterrestrial-fighter will next be seen in the satirical comedy THE TV SET from filmmaker Jake Kasdan (director of the underappreciated ZERO EFFECT, and son of the guy who co-wrote EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RAIDERS).
Extra Tidbit: The actor was referenced in a 1998 song by pop singer Bree Sharp, who proclaimed "David Duchovny/I want you to love me/To kiss and to hug me/Debrief and debug me." Ah, sweet unhealthy obsessions.

I was and still am (though sadly I don't really watch it anymore) a big fan of this show. For a long while I had been hanging onto the hope of another movie. It never seemed to get anywhere. This seems a bit promising, but who knows. If it happens, I'll definitely see it. But I'm not getting my hopes up. I'm glad to see that Robert Patrick isn't returning..not that I loathed him like some, but I just want it to be the classic Mulder/Scully. And on a side note, I really liked the first

And on a side note, I really liked the first film, it had some great conspiracy and mythology. I also thought season 5 and 6 was probably it's peak. Too bad it went downhill in 8 and 9. I'm still a little bitter about that..

I can only hope

I'd like to see this happen. I was always a big fan of the show and I think the only seasons where it went downhill wre the last two. Hell, after the first movie, I think the show had some of its best episodes. I was kind of hoping for a mythology movie, just to add some more resolution to that concept, but eh, I'll take a standalone flick.

I'll believe it only when it actually starts filming.

I've been waiting for an X-Files 2 movie for so long that I don't want to give up hope but at the same time, I don't want to be disappointed again.

I'm also very disappointed that it won't continue the story of the mythology especially since, for those who remember, Mulder and Scully are now fugitives in America. So is this movie gonna take place in another country? Or will they just be solving some case while on the run?

That is,

That is, of coarse, if the movie even happens.

I used to love the original X-Files series, but now for some reason I want to see Mulder and Scully's careers flop. Why is that? Am I just a bastard or do other people feel like this too?

Please, just let this die...like Duchovny's career.

Dont' get me wrong...I worshipped at the twin altars of Duchovney and Anderson weekly, but after the 4th season it all went to hell. It's way way way way way way too late for another run at X-files. Nobody's gonna know or care what this is about. It's like making a Seinfeld movie or a Cheers movie or a Simpsons movie (oh, wait, that got greenlit too).

I see...

...direct to DVD for this movie's future. The first movie was crap and entirely forgettable, and this movie will be more of the same.

They should just let the show die in rerun hell. It had a good run...up until the movie came out.

About time, been waiting for this for years. Granted the last few seasons weren't the greatest, they were still good. As for the movie being a standalone "X-File" I like it. As good as all the conspiracy stuff was, some of the best episodes were these standalones. It really brought out the best of the characters. I'm also curious when in the timeline it will take place, it had been mentioned before that it would be a prequel to the finale.

I was (like most) a mad fan of the show until Mulder went missing, at which point I just tuned out. But the first movie was little more than an extended show, and a let-down at that. I did actually tune in for the series finale, and thought it ended on an appropriately ambiguous note.

It's a bitch of a show to try and follow up, I must admit. But I still was under the impression that Duchovny had done his best at moving on, so I'm surprised he's so eager to jump back onboard. I mean, it's

I mean, it's not like the movies he's been involved in are big money-makers, but I had a lot more idea where he was than Gillian Anderson (is she just doing British movies now?). Anyway, I think trying to figure out the conspiracy was a lot more fun when we didn't have to worry about all the OTHER stuff the government was hiding. Now there are so many interests involved protecting UFOs seems like a moot point.
