'X-Files 2' Got 'I Want to Believe' Title

As the 20th Century Fox have finally agreed on the title on Wednesday, April 16, it is announced that the title to the much anticipated sequel will be 'The X-Files: I Want to Believe'.

The title to the much anticipated sequel of the sci-fi thriller "The X-Files 2" has finally being unveiled as the film's distributor, the 20th Century Fox, have agreed to use the name on Wednesday, April 16. The Associated Press reported the creator of the television series as well as the director of the sequel has revealed that the second X-Files film will be known as "The X-Files: I Want to Believe".

In a telephone interview with AP, Carter revealed that the title has been decided from the first time he and co-scribbler Frank Spotnitz developed the script, but was kept under tight wraps by the studio executives to give them more time in making sure that it is a marketable one. Explaining about the reason behind the choosing of the title itself, the filmmaker confessed that it was not a hard thing to do. "It's a natural title. It's a story that involves the difficulties in mediating faith and science. 'I Want to Believe.' It really does suggest Mulder's struggle with his faith," so the 51-year-old screenwriter claimed.

It is also noted that though the title seems to be a simple one, it carries a lot of meaning behind it. Many hardcore "X-Files" fans are believed to appreciate the name given to the movie since it is a familiar term for them. "I Want to Believe" is a tagline of the poster hanged in the messy basement agent Fox Mulder and Dana Scully called their office.

On the movie set to arrive in theaters on July 25 itself, Carter stated that because the sequel comes ten years after the first film and six years after the series ended, it won't be dealing with "aliens or the intricate mythology about interaction between humans and extraterrestrials that the show built up over the years" so that it can collect new waves of audience.

"It has struck me over the last several years talking to college-age kids that a lot of them really don't know the show or haven't seen it," explained Carter. "If you're 20 years old now, the show started when you were 4. It was probably too scary for you or your parents wouldn't let you watch it. So there's a whole new audience that might have liked the show. This was made to, I would call it, satisfy everyone."

Despite trying to appeal to a younger audience, the director/producer insisted that the movie won't get back to the basic concept. Carter confessed, "The reason we're even making the movie is for the rabid fans, so we don't want to insult them by having to take them back through the concept again."
