After nine seasons and two movies, fans are still clamoring for a little more X-Files. If you’re among the throngs still waiting for that long-rumored third film, star David Duchovny has some advice on how to get it made.
In an interview on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Duchovny (Agent Fox Mulder) was asked about the prospects for that final installment, which is rumored to focus on the climax of the alien colonization storyline from the series.
Duchovny didn’t offer much hope that it had momentum, but issued a call to arms for fans to write and send emails to Fox urging them to give the flick a green light:
“We always want to [return to the franchise]. Chris Carter and Gillian Anderson and I, we’re always on board. You want to write Fox and get ‘em going. You could wheel me [out]. I’ll play Fox Mulder forever.”
Despite its name recognition among geeks of a certain age, the X-Files franchise lost a lot of its luster after the critically and commercially panned 2008 sequel film I Want to Believe. Fans were mixed on the entry, but most agree the writers should’ve focused on the alien storyline (easily the coolest thread left hanging from the series) and try to wrap it up for the fans.
