Gillian Anderson wants another X-Files movie, and so do David Duchovny and Chris Carter.
Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny were made famous when they showed off their on-screen chemistry on the now classic TV series, and since then they have made two movies. The last of the X-Files movies was called The X-Files: I Want to Believe, and it predated reality as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are rumored to be dating, as previously reported by The Inquisitr.
The last film in the series had their characters Dana Scully and Fox Mulder in a relationship, and it is believed that the next film may still have them together, if not married.
Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and creator Chris Carter are all on board to make a third film to mark the 20th anniversary of the TV series, but in the end, it’s apparently up to Fox Studios.
Gillian Anderson, the X-Files star alongside David Duchovny, took part in a questions and answers session on Reddit to promote the next film, followed by an appearance at New York Comic-Con.
Gillian Anderson told X-Files fans at NYCC how the movie might happen, “If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that then I guess that’s what it would be.”
So what would it take for fans to get the word out that we want another X-Files film? One option would be to take to Change.org and sign the petition that Australian fan Megan McDonald has started. It doesn’t always work, but it’s worth a try.
Given that neither actor has been all that successful outside the franchise that made them famous, a third X-Files film could be just what they need to get back in the spotlight. Gillian Anderson did have an appearance recently in Johnny English Reborn, but Rowan Atkinson really stole the scene with his outrageous performance which could be considered a classy offshoot of Mr. Bean.
If you want a third X-Files film, this is the time to speak up and let Fox Studios know. Gillian Anderson wants more X-Files, and David Duchovny and series creator Chris Carter agree. It’s just up to Fox Studios at this point.
