The truth is right here: what The X-Files must do to find its way

Gillian Anderson has said this season will be her last – and maybe that is a good thing for a show that needs to get back to ghouls and UFOs and stop getting bogged down in backstory

Well, that’s it. Once this season of The X-Files is over, Dana Scully is no more. Gillian Anderson has decided that it’s finally time to retire a character who has loomed over her career since 1993, when she was but the wee age of 24. “I’ve done this now for decades,” she said on a recent press tour, “and it’s time for me to hang up Scully’s hat.” Scully’s frustrating lack of an actual hat notwithstanding, after 25 years chasing ghouls, aliens and Giovanni Ribisi, you have to agree that both Anderson and Scully probably deserve a bit of a sit down.

James Cameron on his Avatar sequels, pushing boundaries and taking risks

James Cameron is a busy man at the moment, with the filmmaker currently in the middle of his ambition plan to shoot Four sequels to 2009’s sci-fi blockbuster Avatar. Nevertheless, he managed to take some time out of his schedule to speak to IGN about his new TV show Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, during which he also provided an update on said Avatar sequels.

“It doesn’t matter how much you dress it up with great production design and great visual effects. If the story is not working, if you don’t connect to the characters, it’s just simply not going to work,” said Cameron. “Of course, we can’t afford for it not to work, the budget level that we are dealing with.

James Cameron: “If Avatar 2 and 3 don’t make enough money, there’s not going to be a 4 and 5”

After close to a decade in development, production is now finally underway on James Cameron’s Avatar sequels, with the filmmaker embarking on his hugely ambitious plan to shoot four films consecutively. The production will however be taking a break between the first two sequels and the latter two, and it seems that Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 may not yet be set in stone.

“Let’s face it, if Avatar 2 and 3 don’t make enough money, there’s not going to be a 4 and 5,” Cameron tells Vanity Fair. “They’re fully encapsulated stories in and of themselves.
