'X-Files 3' Said to Be in the Works


'X-Files 3' Said to Be in the Works


During her appearance at the Sarajevo Film Festival, Gillian Anderson allegedly spills the beans that a third 'X-Files' movie is in early stages and should be filmed by 2012.

"The X-Files: I Want to Believe" may have failed to deliver back in 2008, but it looks like the disappointing result doesn't stop filmmakers from planning another "X-Files" movie. According to Croatian website Dnevnik.hr, leading actress Gillian Anderson has addressed the chances of the third "X-Files" being materialized.

In an indirect quote, the site reported that Anderson said the third film is in early stages and should be filmed by 2012. The 41-year-old reportedly suggested the matter to the media and the audience at the last press conference of the 15th Sarajevo Film Festival after revealing that she would love to reprise her role as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully for "X-Files 3".

While none has been confirmed or denied, Bloody-Disgusting (BD) claimed that "there is in fact talk about doing another" movie. The site went further with its report that there is also "talk of a REBOOT". Nonetheless, BD stressed that nothing has been set in stone just yet and all of the reports should be "taken as rumor until confirmed".

In late 2008, producer Frank Spotnitz revealed that the development of the third "X-Files" film may depend on the DVD sales of "The X-Files: I Want to Believe". "I think there very well could be more in the future," he told BD at the time. "...When the studio looks at the sales of the DVD that's when they will really decide to see if its worth risking."

Upon its release on July 25, 2008, "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 raked in nearly $21 million in the domestic market and $68.4 million worldwide.

    The X-Files 3 may start filming by April 2012. It took them four months to film the second film. Hopefully, with our fingers crossed, we will get a third and final installment to the franchise. As far as I know, as of September 2011, the movie is in the talks of being made. So get ready for Mulder and Scully to kick some alien butts!!! I'm excited!!! I WANT TO BELIEVE!!!

    If a third X-Files movie doesn't get made it would be a huge disapointment to the entire series. The Alien Plot of the show needs to have closure and we certainly must see what has become of William. Especially with all the hype in the series about the year 2012, this movie MUST get made. I don't think anyone could honestly ask for anything beyond a third movie but we should have that atleast.

    Well the cool thing about this is that 2012 has always been the date for the final alien invasion ("The Date Is Set")& we could well see a new series (Hopefully), plus Frank Spotnitz teases about what is in the mythology about 2012 on the dvd & that he always wonders what will happen with that.

    .....plus, I mean, 'I Want To Believe' had virtually no AD/PR budget compared to 'The Dark Knight' and 'Indiana Jones' AND whatever other huge summer movie that it had to compete with, and it still was 4rth, which is really good. X-Files 3!

    I'm assuming the writer figured that the tone of the article would illustrate the fact that much of this is just rumor and speculation at this point. They did throw a lot of doubt on it. The article does say "indirect" and "reportedly", after all.

    Sorry, message got messed up for some reason, so here goes again: Gillian never said a third movie was in the works. All she said was that there was talk about it and if it should be made, she'd be glad to do it. Why don't you check your information prior to publishing???
