Former X-Files writer Frank Spotnitz feels your pain—and if you give him the chance, he promises that a third and final film in the franchise would rock. Seriously.
In an interview with ScreenDaily, Spotnitz said that if another X-Files movie is greenlit, it will return to the 1990s Fox series' bread and butter: alien conspiracies.
"It feels wrong not to give it an ending around the alien colonization of Earth," he said. "David [Duchovny] and Gillian [Anderson] feel the same. I have a clear idea of how it would go, and I've been talking to [X-Files creator] Chris Carter about it for a long time."
The alien-invasion storyline was one of the best things about the original series, though the latest feature film—2008's lackluster I Want to Believe—focused on a standalone story not associated with the conspiracy.
Spotnitz said he would love to wrap the franchise up right, bringing the alien thread to a close, and will keep making noise in hopes that someone at Fox will eventually give him the chance.
"There is a very active and relentless fan campaign for a last movie. I do feel like it would be a terrible shame if that didn't happen," he said. "I'll keep banging the drum whenever I meet the Fox guys."
What do you think? Would you like a final X-Files film to finally wrap up those dangling storylines?
