"The X Files" star David Duchovny confessed that he is about to receive a script for the sequel to the movie soon.
Delivering good news for the fans of the sci-fi franchise, David Duchovny pointed out during this year's Television Critics Association press tour that the follow-up to 1998's "The X Files", the big screen version of FOX's hit TV series of the same name, has gone one step further in its development stage.
"I'm supposed to see a script next week," the actor remarked Saturday, July 14 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, adding that the show's creator Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz both wrote the screenplay and that the former guy is also in charge to direct.
Still in the same occasion, Duchovny restated his past remarks claiming he and Gillian Anderson "are on board" the project to reprise their role of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively, while informing that filming may begin in November for a summer 2008 release.
"It's a great show and I love playing the character and I like the people," so he said upon giving the reason of his decision to return for the sequel.
