David Duchovny Wants To Believe In A Third ‘X-Files’ Film

X-Files: I Want to Believe may have been a major disappointment both critically and financially but that isn’t stopping Chris Carter n making a third X-Files film.

David Duchovny confirmed this week that X-Files 3 is currently being written saying, “It is in the process of being written. One awaits just the green light from Fox, a little disappointed from the relatively poor reception of the second film. The error comes, in my opinion, that the authors strayed too far from the roots of the series. Moreover, the film was released in the summer. The third will be much closer to what the public expects, with government conspiracies, etc.”

I remember back around the time of the release of the second film, fans and the general public were all in agreement that nobody really had any interest in a franchise dormant for so many years. I personally think the big problem is that audiences do like to go back and revisit the original series and or movies to refresh their memory, but not too many people have time to sit down and re-watch nine seasons of The X-Files. Of course just because someone is writing a script for a new X-Files film, doesn’t mean it will satisfy the creators of the show and guarantee a green-light. Only time will tell. One thing is still for certain, The X-Files intro is still one of the best of any show in history. See it below.
