They did have talks that their would be another x-files movie after the series final. So I wouldn't be surprised at all of this.

The real question is "If they made an X-Files sequel, would anyone come to see it?"

I mean, I was a fan of the series up until David Duchuvany left, and I have a hard time trying to build anything that resembles entusiasm for a 2nd X-Files movie. FOX drove that series into the ground.

It reached the point where even Chris Carter, I imagine, couldn't figure out the "answers" - in fact, I'll bet he can't even remember the questioms....

I can't remember the questions either, but I'm sure they will get it all screwed up anyhow.

in all, I loved the episodes of the x-files that delt more with just the monster stories instead of the stupid underground alien/sister story.

I would have liked a movie based on or around some of those monster episodes.

They should have ended it after seven. I hope Buffy doesn't overstay its welcome as bad as X-Files did. I don't think I would bother going to watch it after the sorry state of affairs that season nine was.

I believe they were originally going to look into production on X-Files 2 starting in 2004, but they decided to actually move it up and begin production this year--so that they could have a 2004 release.

From what I have read through the trades, this film will NOT be a conspiracy film and instead focus on a single case.

IMO, that's the way they should all be--it would have the real chance of being a major film franchise.

I'd see it no matter what. Fans of the show who crapped out on the series partway thru can't even be called fans. ('m sure some of you are going to loooooove me saying that) The show changed and had bad episodes but not bad seasons.

Another movie will everybody would be fine by me.

Well, they've got that new xbox game coming out that is a couple of newly written interractive episodes. Thar will be a good test to see if there is still interest in the franchise.

You say Tomatoe I say Tomato, I guess. Losing the lead hurt the show tremendously. We fans who crapped out are obviously in the majority since the show was cancelled regardless of what Carter said at the end.

Ok, I was a fan of Mulders and scully's chemistry.. which was the show and what made the show.

lets put it this way.. If you take Fat albert away from the fat albert show.. what do you have?

I disliked the final seasons but sadly I still watched. A fan? Hell yeah I am. Been to conventions and the works. but I hated when mulder was gone and what the story turned into. the show shouldn't have been called "X-files". it should have been a spin off.

Not to mention the terrible way they got rid of the lone gunmen... total crap way to end it.

How can you say that fans crapped out on the show midway through?
I stopped watching it when they changed the whole premise of the show, actors left and the show started getting away from the dark stuff that made it so good. I blame that on FOX and Carter for going on way past the time it should have.
Carter originally said 5 seasons and that the two lead characters would never get romantically involved.
He lied about both.
The show went on and on and we got answers to little.
Will I see a movie, probably but towards the end there, Carter was taking the money and milking the show.
Give us something good.

I thought the show would have ended perfectly if they ended it with the kiss at the end of season 8. Season 9 was just horrible. It was like a different show.

Also, how are they going to get Mulder involved in a new case for the film? He's now an escaped convicted murderer and Scully is an accomplice. They are no longer in the FBI, which truly sucks. I loved the power that the FBI affoded them.

Yes it was, and after how crappy Season 7 was, for the most part, I didn't think it was possible to do worse, especailly after Season 8 was better and gave us so much hope.

Personally, I can never forgive the show for killing Alex Krycek, and then having him pop back up in the last episode as a friggin ghost. lame. It's bad enough he was not in the first X-Files film, and now I think the show has shot itself in the foot by killing him because now he cannot be in any upcoming films (unless they do something stupid).

In this Sunday's Parade there's an interview with David Duchovny and he's asked about an X-Files sequel. He says he doesn't see why The X-Files can't be a sucessful franchise and that they're all sigend on for another movie.

Holy Bump, Batman!

btw...Gillian's been knocked up. So, unless there's an x-file in a pocketbook store or some other place she can cover her belly, it'll be nine months or so until shooting...

or maybe they can CGI her stomach..

They worked around her pregnancy on the show so I don't know why they wouldn't be able to work around it in a movie.

It's a moot point anyway. The fetus currently occupying Gillian Anderson's womb will probably be graduating from college by the time we see another "X-Files" movie.

I'm hoping they make a sequel. I've read some things about what they want to do with it, and it sounds interesting. I was a big fan of the show (and it's currently my second favourite television show, next to Six Feet Under.) I also loved, "Fight the Future."

A sequel is a must.

Interesting, though, Gillian will have to work hard on her English accent, because she's been living in the UK for a long time now and she has one of the thickest (and most bizarre) British accents that I've heard.

She looks amazing, though, Duchovny is definately aging, but Gillian hardly looks like she's aged a day.

That'd be interesting to hear. I'm a fan of "accquired" faux-accents..
