Comic-Con 2013: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Reunite at 'X-Files' 20th Anniversary Panel
'The X-Files' creator Chris Carter talks about a possible third film in the sci-fi horror franchise, and Anderson enthusiastically responds, 'A film would be great.'


Twenty years after it first aired on FOX, "The X-Files" headed to San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 18 for a 20th anniversary reunion panel. Lead stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, creator Chris Carter, former writer Vince Gilligan and some key writers and producers were on hand for the gathering event with fans.

The crowd got excited when the panelists talked about the possibility of a third "X-Files" movie. Carter said, "You need a reason for going on and getting excited," teasingly adding that the warm response from audience at the Ballroom 20 "is very inspirational."

Anderson was seemingly up for a third film as saying, "A film would be great." Dana Scully of the sci-fi series, however, was not keen on doing a limited series a la "24: Live Another Day".

Anderson additionally expressed her hopes to share a sex scene with Duchovny on his current TV show, "Californication". "I didn't realize that Mulder was so cool until a few years later. And then I thought, 'Damn, I should've gotten there sooner,' " she said.

Duchovny also would like to work with Anderson again, but only for the right project. "Sacred's a strong word," he said of what they had, "but there's something so special about Mulder and Scully ... it would have to be something that wouldn't cross the line between those two characters."

For the series creator, Carter, Scully and Mulder indeed fell in love at first sight. "I think it was when (Scully) first walked in (Mulder's) office in the basement," he replied to a question about when the romance first sparked.

Gilligan, who now is known for being the mastermind behind "Breaking Bad", revealed that he once almost brought in Drew Barrymore to "X-Files" as a guest star. He had an idea for an episode inspired by "The Twilight Zone", where he wanted Barrymore play a "kid who can wish people into the cornfield."
