The X-Files may be twenty years old now - and absent from the screen since 2008's The X Files: I Want to Believe - but that doesn't mean we've necessarily seen the last of FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, at least if stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have any say in the matter.
Speaking at a 20th Anniversary panel at the New York Comic Con yesterday, both Duchovny and Anderson admitted they were keen to reunite for the long-rumoured third movie, which Duchovny claims series creator Chris Carter is currently working on:
"I think Chris [Carter] is working on a script. Chris is shooting a pilot [for The After] right now, so he might not be working on the script, but he claims to be working on a script, and if he does do that and Fox wants to make it, Gillian will do it, I will do it, so start your writing campaign now. »

After 20 years, it’s possible for the details of a relationship to get fuzzy.
Just ask David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, who first premiered their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully on The X-Files two decades ago. The series aired nine seasons and resulted in two feature films.
While the two were unsure where they left their relationship in the show and films, the 53-year-old Duchovny and 45-year-old Anderson both said they’re open to making a third X-Files movie.
The actors got together Saturday to mark the 20th Anniversary of the series’ premiere. They participated in »

Gillian Anderson has urged fans to start a campaign for a third X-Files movie.
The actress, who starred alongside David Duchovny in the sci-fi hit from 1993 to 2002, told The AP that it could take "fan encouragement" to get Twentieth Century Fox interested in a third feature instalment of the series.
Reuniting with Duchovny at an event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the launch of The X-Files, Anderson said: "If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that then I guess that's what it would be."
Duchovny added: "All the principals are on board. Gillian and I want to do it, so it's really up to Twentieth Century Fox at this point."
Series creator Chris Carter is also keen to revisit the characters of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, having previously suggested that a third movie would deal with the aftermath of the December 22, 2012 colonisation date mentioned in the series. »

This time, the pair that brought Mulder and Scully to life will appear together at New York City’s Paley Center, where they’ll discuss “the iconic sci-fi series that largely defined the paranoid thriller for the nineties, and whose influence can still be felt in supernatural dramas airing today,” according to the event’s official description.
Those words echo something creator Chris Carter said at the anniversary panel this summer: “The suspicion and conspiracy theories are so much more rampant today. »

Some of our favourite sci-fi films and TV programmes have, at their core, a partnership which hooks us in. Often the two are polar opposites, sometimes they are thrown together by chance, but they connect, spark and we join them for the ride.
To celebrate the release on DVD of Lost Girl Season Two we set out to find the most enduring and endearing sci-fi partnerships around and there was no shortage of contenders. In the end we went for the duos who led us through some of our favourite adventures, and there are many more bubbling under.
Here are some of our favourites, let us know yours in the comments.
Kirk & Spock (Star Trek)
The only factor that could have prevented this pair turning up on our list of favourite sci-fi duos was DeForest Kelley’s Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy, who was always this writer’s favourite member of the USS Enterprise crew. »

Movie News - Will we see Simon Pegg in the new 'The X-Files' movie? A third installment of the paranormal investigation franchise is being developed, and the Brit actor wants a role in the movie, but only as long as original FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully - played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson respectively - are included. He told The Sun newspaper: ''I was a big fan of 'The X Files' and I've become friends with Gillian since. ''I've always loved that show so it's definitely something I'd consider. ''It's a great story and it would be nice to see it continue [but] it has to be with David Duchovny and with Gillian.'' The show's creator, Chris Carter, is also keen to write 'Mission: Impossible -Ghost Protocol' star Pegg into a new script, and had considered him when making the second film, ' »
It looks like The X-Files creator Chris Carter could be set for a return to television for the first time in over a decade, with Deadline reporting that Amazon Studios has placed a pilot order for The After, an hour-long project Carter has been developing with Georgeville TV.
The After is described as "a thriller which revolves around a mysterious, unexplained event [and] incorporates elements of science fiction, suspense, and real world fear and paranoia." It is said to take place at "the moment of apocalypse" and Carter is expected to direct the pilot from his own script.
Best known for creating The X-Files, Carter's other TV credits include the spin-offs Millennium and The Lone Gunmen, as well as an adaptation of the comic book Harsh Realm. His most recent directing credit was the X-Files movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe in 2008, while he's also currently in post production on the thriller Fencewalker. »

It seems like an age since David Duchovny said he wouldn’t mind seeing Mulder up there on the big screen again for another X-Files and – if I’m honest – I wouldn’t mind another bout of escapism with Mulder & Scully either. So, now that creator Chris Carter has thrown in his desire for a comeback, is it time to get a little excited?
It’s no secret that those two and Gillian Anderson have stated their love and hope for one more outing. The X-Files: I Want To Believe was greeted with a mixed response but Chris Carter now says it’s up to 20th Century Fox, or maybe a subsidiary? Carter said:
“It’s really up to 20th Century Fox, whether they have the will to do it. I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head. »

The X-Files series creator Chris Carter, who also directed 1998's first The X-Files movie and 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe, has revealed that there may be a role for Simon Pegg in The X-Files 3, if it moves forward. Here's what the filmmaker had to say, revealing that they almost cast the British actor in The X-Files: I Want to Believe.
"Gillian (Anderson) worked with Simon Pegg on a movie [2008's How to Lose Friends and Alienate People] and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way."
We haven't heard anything about The X-Files 3 since March, when series star David Duchovny said the fans should get involved in asking 20th Century Fox to make the sequel. When asked about the status of this follow-up, Chris Carter had this to say. »
I was and always shall be a huge fan of The X-Files. It bordered on obsession that was rarely matched until some shows in recent years. Every now and then, I revisit the old episodes and enjoy the hell out of them despite being incredibly dated technologically. I may have even been one of the few who enjoyed The X-Files: I Want To Believe and still hold out hope that we may get another mythology-based story featuring Mulder and Scully. X-Files creator Chris Carter has been under the radar »

On September 10th, 1993, from the mind of Chris Carter "The X-Files" was born. It brought us science fiction and horror drama to an amazing television series which spanned nine seasons and 202 episodes. The hype from the success of the television show birthed two incredible films, "The X-Files" aka "The X-Files: Fight the Future" and "The X-Files: I Want to Believe". Our friends over at Dread Central had the opportunity to interview Chris Carter… »
The X Files recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary at Comic Con and fans seemed just as excited as when the show was still on the air. The last X Files incarnation, The X Files: I Want to Believe feature film, was released in 2008 to a mixed response from critics and fans.
Despite the failure of the second film, fans are still pining for one more outing. In fact, demand is so high for the X Files universe that creator Chris Carter is currently overseeing the release of season 10 of The X Files in comic book form.
Another X Files film is clearly should be made and here’s three reasons why.
3. X Files More Relevant Now Than Before

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully (or, if you insist, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) reunited at Comic-Con for the 20th Anniversary of "The X-Files." Judging by the hero's welcome they both received, Fox's landmark sci-fi series still has a rabid fanbase over a decade after leaving the air.
Anderson, Duchovny and creator Chris Carter headlined the panel discussion along with key producers including Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad") and Howard Gordon ("Homeland"). The topics ranged from classic "X-Files" episodes (including the chilling "Home" and kooky "Jose Chung's From Outer Space") to the show's lasting influence on pop culture. Not that any of that stopped a randy Anderson from always bringing the discussion back to sex.
Here's a rundown of the five hottest topics:
Mulder and Scully's sex life
The FBI agents' will they/won't they relationship was never explicitly consummated on screen but Anderson revealed she developed her own crush on Mulder, »
Villordsutch reviews the first issue of Idw's 'Season Ten' of The X-Files...
"For years they investigated the paranormal, pursued the 'monsters of the week,' and sought the truth behind extraterrestrial activity, along with the grand conspiracy surrounding it rooted deep within their own government. But when Agents Mulder and Scully reunite for a new, ongoing series that ushers The X-Files into a new era of technological paranoia, multinational concerns and otherworldly threats, it'll take more than a desire 'to believe' to make it out alive. The X-Files: Season 10 also sees creator Chris Carter return to the fold as Executive Producer!"
Now this in an odd comic as, on my initial read, it didn’t overly impress me. I wasn’t keen on the look of it, nor was I overly chuffed with the story. I went away and an hour later I picked up my Nexus 7 and re-read it. »

Featuring a truly terrific performance from Emmy award-winner Gillian Anderson, The Fall is a gripping, intelligent and highly addictive psychological thriller (I watched all five hours in one sitting because it’s so engrossing) that forensically examines the lives of two hunters, one of whom is a serial killer (played by Once Upon A Time star Jamie Dornan) that stalks his victims at random, and the other is a high-powered detective superintendent brought in to catch him. It is a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game with twists and turns that unfold until the very end. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Gillian Anderson talked about what led her to sign on to The Fall, her attraction to complex and complicated characters, how she views Stella Gibson, what she most enjoyed about playing the role, how refreshing and freeing it is to inhabit a woman who’s so blunt, keeping »

Gillian Anderson has said that she expects an X-Files 3 movie.
The actress said that she thinks that creator Chris Carter might already be working on a new script during her Reddit Ask Me Anything interview.
"I would say that there is a very good chance that Chris is in the process of writing it, and as with any creative endeavour, it needs time and space and patience, and I have no doubt that at some point, when it's the right time, and he is happy with it, it will see the light of day, and that will be the beginning," she said.
When the X-Files show ended in 2002 after nine seasons, Carter promised that it would continue in a series of films. »
Taking a cue from what Dark Horse Comics did with Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel by bringing Joss Whedon onboard, The X-Files: Season 10 will be produced by Chris Carter, the series creator. The X-Files: Season 10 will be written by Joe Harris (Great Pacific) with art by Michael Walsh and colorist Jordie Bellaire.
Chris Ryall, Idw’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief on the project:
“It was already an incredibly exciting prospect to tell stories set after the second The X-Files movie, especially after Joe Harris worked up such a great plan in that regard…But my excitement level went off the charts after a meeting with Chris Carter, where he agreed to come aboard and executive produce our Season 10. In much the same way »
