The truth is still out there and X-Files creator wants to find it. The man behind the aliens-are-everywhere franchise has spoken to Empire about the possibility of making X-Files 3 and the direction the movie could take:
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 colonization date has passed and that is something we wouldn't ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology.
The chances of getting X-Files 3 depends on 20th Century Fox and whether they "have the will to do it," but if the movie does get the green light, Carter would like to cast X-Files buff in the movie:
Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie [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.
I want to believe that we'll get another X-Files movie, but I really don't know if there's a big enough demand for it out there. What do you think? Would you like to see X-Files 3 or should the franchise be killed with fire?
