According to David Duchovny, there is a new X-FILES film being put together. Duchovny told the French site TV MAG that one is in the preparation stages by Chris Carter and company. There is a script being worked on. Here is what Duchovny had to say:
“It is in the process of being written. One awaits just the green light from Fox, who are a little disappointed from the relatively poor reception of the second film. (The film grossed $20.8 million.) The error comes, in my opinion, from the authors straying too far from the roots of the series. Moreover, the film was released in the summer. The third will be much closer to what the public expects, with government conspiracies, etc.”
My hope is that Mitch’s role will be more than a mere walk on at the end like he had in I Want to Believe or just as a sounding board as he had in Fight the Future. My other hope is that if there is another film, it includes Robert Patrick (Agent John Doggett) and Annabeth Gish (Agent Monica Reyes). They as much as Mitch deserve to be in the next film because like it or not, they were part of the show after Duchovny left. And I liked them. Period!
