The truth is out there. It was a fanboy’s dream. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, you may know them better of course as Mulder and Scully, both participated in a 20th Anniversary X-Files Panel in New York City. The popular mis-matched FBI duo agreed to answer questions for reddit’s Ask Me Anything forum.
It’s been over a decade since the uber-popular Fox science-fiction drama went off the air. And since that time, two X-Files films have been made. The first in 1998, simply called X Files and the second one X Files: I Want to Believe was made ten years later in 2008. But could there be a third X Files film on the way?
When asked about the possibility of a third movie, Duchovny may have fueled the fire, “I think Chris is working on a script. Chris is shooting a pilot right now, so he might not be working on a 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. Seriously. We’d all love to do it. The ball is in Fox’s hands. And not Fox Mulder, Fox the studio.”
The pair sat for almost two hours and answered fan’s questions about any and every aspect of the show. Does Duchovny actually believe in aliens? He responded, “Odds are we are not alone.” And how about Anderson, “It wouldn’t surprise me. It’s just the fact of it. The universe is bigger than big.”
The X-Files ran on the Fox network for nine seasons. Although, it may have began as a cult show, the intriguing paranormal storylines and the “will they or won’t they” sexual chemistry between Mulder and Scully turned the show into a water-cooler crowd-pleaser.
