David Duchovny recently revealed in an interview with a French website called TVMag that a script for X-Files 3 is being written. Here's the quote from Duchovny that was translated from French, so it's a bit choppy, but you get the idea.
It is being written. One awaits just the green light from Fox, a little disappointed from the relatively poor reception of the second film. The error comes, in my opinion, that the authors strayed too far from the roots of the series. Moreover, the film was released in the summer. The third will be much closer to what the public expects, with government conspiracies, etc.
I wasn't a big fan of the second film. It was cool to see Mulder and Scully back together again, but I thought the story was weak compared to the episodes of the show that I grew up watching. Even though I didn't like the last movie, I still wouldn't mind seeing another X-Files flick. It's such a great franchise that still has a lot of potential, and I think there's still another awesome movie that could be created.
There's no word on if X-Files creator Chris Carter is involved, but I imagine that if anyone was writing a script for the film it would be him.
What do you all think about the idea of a third X-Files film?
