Talk of a third X-Files film has been swirling around for several years now. Looking to shake off the lackluster performance of 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe, rumors have had actors David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and creator Chris Carter all talking about a third film.
In an interview with Den of Geek, producer Frank Spotnitz says, "I've known for many years what I would like the movie to be and I've been talking to Chris Carter about it for many years, but there is no script… It's the climax of the alien colonization story that began the series."
Spotnitz also said he wouldn't be surprised if the series was rebooted as a new TV series with a couple of new, younger agents.
"I wouldn't be surprised at all. I mean, I don't think I would have anything to do with it, but you know, for better or worse, these things are titles of big corporations and it's a huge asset in their libraries so I can't imagine they would let it sit languishing forever."
As a fan of the series, it would be nice to see the franchise (at least the Mulder and Scully portion) wrapped up. Enough time has passed and considering there's no script yet, a third film wouldn't arrive in theaters until 2014 or 2015 -- at the earliest.
Would you be interested in a third X-Files movie, or are Mulder and Scully old news? What about a TV reboot with new, younger agents?
