Will We Finally Get X-Files 3?
Posted by montoc1701 on August 3, 2012
There have always been rumours about a third movie to finish the story and the first X-Files film was a step in the right direction but the second just went wrong and the creators seem to agree on this. Producer Frank Spotniz talks to Collider about his hopes for a third movie.
Collider: Do you feel like you’ve closed the book now on The X-Files, or is there still another chapter to tell there? Do you still want to do a third movie?
FRANK SPOTNITZ: I absolutely do! I think everybody should write to 20th Century Fox. I’ve been saying for years now that I feel it’s a cultural crime that they have not finished the series. The second movie did not perform the way anybody wanted it to at the box office. I’m proud of that movie, but it makes sense to me that it didn’t. It was released at the height of summer, and it was a story-of-the-week. That’s not what the movie-going audience wanted. The movie-going audience wanted the aliens. That’s what they know The X-Files for. And that story is not done, and it should be finished. I don’t think it’s too late, but I think it’s gonna be, pretty soon. I’m still agitating with everyone I can grab to say, “Let’s make this movie while we still can!”
