The show creator expresses interest in working together with 'The World's End' star Simon Pegg, should the studio develop the movie.

"The X-Files" creator Chris Carter talks about a potential new "X-Files" movie in a recent interview with Empire Magazine. There are currently two features in the series that is based on the popular 1990s TV show. The first film opened in 1998 while the latest one, named "The X-Files: I Want to Believe", graced big screens in July 2008.

Asked about a possible third installment, Carter answered, "It's really up to 20th Century Fox, whether they have the will to do it." The 55-year-old writer then added, "I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head."

"The colonization date has passed, and that is something we wouldn't ignore," Carter continued. Of the second movie, in which he served as director, the Primetime Emmy-nominated man said, "We only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology."

"Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie and told me he was a big fan," Carter revealed. "We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way."
