I would absolutely love to see a third X-Files film, and I'm pretty sure one day it will happen. The last thing we heard on the movie was from Gillian Anderson who said, "I met with [series creator Chris Carter]... and it's looking pretty good." David Duchvony even expressed his desire to step back into the shoes of Fox Mulder. When it does happen there's a possibility that it could wrap up the story.
In an interview with Den of Geek, X-Files producer Frank Spotnitz talked about another film saying he would love to get the gang back together for another film. If it turns out to be the the last film in the franchise, he and creator Chris Carter already knows what story it would be,
I mean I've known for many years what I would like the movie to be and I've been talking to Chris Carter about it for many years, but there is no script ... It's the climax of the alien colonization story that began the series.
That is the movie we all want to see! It's not like i want to see one last film, but maybe an epic trilogy to wrap it all up!? I think the fanbase is strong enough for something like this to happen. They just need to give them what they want, and there's a way to awesomely pull it off! 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe didn't help the franchise much, but I still believe there is life in it! One bad egg shouldn't spoil the incredible franchise!
Now, how would you feel about the series being rebooted as a new TV series with a couple new younger agents? There's currently no plans for this, but Spotnitz wouldn't be surprised if it happened and frankly, neither would I.
I wouldn't be surprised at all. I mean, I don't think I would have anything to do with it but you know, for better or for worse, these things are titles of big corporations , like Star Trek belongs to Paramount and The X-Files belongs to Twentieth Century Fox and it's a huge asset in their libraries so I can't imagine they would let it sit languishing forever.
Anything could happen. I just hope that if they do it, they do it well, that's my only request.
That would be any fan's request. Hell, if they do it, they might as well just bring back Anderson and Duchvony. I could see another series being a pretty solid hit with audiences. Sci-fi, fantasy and horror TV series are bigger now than they ever were, and the original X-Files series helped set the stage for them.
I'm a huge fan of this franchise, and I would love to see it continue as a film or TV series. I so badly want to see what happens next in the universe of Mulder and Scully. I would love to see the climax of the alien colonization! From previous interviews and statements, it sounds like the wheels are in motion to make something happen. Hopefully it happens soon though.
