If another "The X-Files" movie was to be made, it will most likely see the return of the aliens to the sci-fi film. Talking to MovieWeb in the promotional effort for "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" DVD version, writer/producer Frank Spotnitz states, "Yeah. I mean, if we were to make one more feature, I think we would definitely have to deal with alien colonization."

He also hints that the third movie may be the last of the series. "I would think so," he notes when asked whether "The X-Files 3" would be the final closure film. "It certainly would be designed to be the period on the sentence." Meanwhile, on the possible date the movie will come out, Spotnitz suggests late 2012 to be one of the potential release dates.

"There's a date that looms very important in X-Files mythology, which is December 2012. I think after the DVD comes out, the studio will decide whether they want to roll the dice on another X-Files feature," so he claimed. The complete interview with Spotnitz can be read at MovieWeb.

Opened in theaters on July 25, "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" debuted fourth at the North American box office behind "The Dark Knight" and "Step Brothers". The movie that teams up once again David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson has so far collected $66.3 million worldwide. It will come out on DVD and Blu-ray on December 2.

I rally like X-FILES 1 & 2, and would definately like a 3, but I seem to be in the (surprising) minority on what it should be about. The show tanked out season 9 because people (myself included) were NOT into the constant alien thing. Remember the final episode when extra-terrestrials were finally debunked? I was elated! Now it looks like X3 won't even be worth my time. Boo!

OMG, yes!! X-files forever!!! You know, people would be suprised at the age group that loves this show. I can't find one person in my high school that doesn't know what it is.=D Either X-files really rocks (IT DOESSS) or my high school peers do.... meh, bring on XF3!!! And LOTS more if possible!! Oh btw can we like see Baby William cuz the last movie really made me miss him=(

I would like to see another x-files movie 3 dealing with the alien conlonication. I loved the last episode of the series, but to me it left the door open for Mulder and Scully to still fight the future. I like to reyes and dogget back along with skinner and kirsh they were great. I would like to see the movie come out sooner than 2012. Please do a movie 3. This is the only show I can sit and watch over and over again. There will never be another like the x-files.

How about creating a season 10 before the final conclusion movie of 2012 ?

i think x files 3 would be a great way to go out with a bang. i do think it needs to come out sooner than 2012 because some people might forget about storylines about the colonization of the aliens in december 2012
