A few days ago there was some buzz online that perhaps fan favorite Simon Pegg could be pegged to take part in a rumored new chapter in the X-FILES mythos. Today Mr. Pegg himself has sounded off on the possibility.
”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.”
So, sounds like he’s down with the notion. Show helmer Chris Carter backed up that statement as follows:
βItβs really up to Twentieth Century Fox, whether they have the will to do it,β he states. βI think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head. The colonization date has passed, and that is something we wouldnβt ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology.β
Sounds like this one could be gaining some steam, keep it here and I’ll make sure you get the latest updates.
