X-Files 3 Abducting Audiences In 2012?
David Duchovny is on board.
This from thedailybeast.com:
"Duchovny looks forward to filming a third X-Files film in the near future. “As far as the X-Files movie I’d like to do next, if we get a chance to do it, would be a return to the heart and soul of the mythology, which is the alien-oriented conspiracy. I think it’s natural for The X-Files to have another movie in 2012, so we’ll see if we get to do it.” He defends last year’s widely panned I Want to Believe, as well as the polarizing last few seasons of the television run: “I was happy with it… I have nothing but respect for [X-Files creator] Chris Carter and the writing staff.”
David goes on to further explain his reasons for wanting a third X-Files film:
"A show or movie with the staying power of The X-Files happens so rarely, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event for an actor, and a certain residue accrues to a person when they are involved in something like that,” Duchovny says pensively. “There was a prejudice within the Hollywood community where they didn't know I could do anything else. I understand the residue and I don’t resent it, but certainly I am happy to have created another character that’s so different, in a different genre, and I would love to keep doing that.”
If Hollywood didn't know David could do anything else they certainly got a shock out of Showtime's original series "Californication" which is pretty good by the way. Californication was great for David's career because it broke the Mulder. David was no longer chained to one kind of role.
Facts are facts and X-Files 2 was not very good. I have the up most respect for Chris Carter but if X-Files 3 get's a green light (which it probably will) then I hope Chris listens to David and they go with the "return to the heart and soul of the mythology, which is the alien-oriented conspiracy." Take this opportunity and make something epic, not just good enough.
Now, for those of you that did NOT know X-Files was a comic book take a whiff of this.
