David Duchovny Wants To Do A Third “X-Files” Film
Actor David Duchovny from Showtime‘s Californication, it getting the itch to return back to his sci-fi roots, and expressed such sentiments to Collider.com in an exclusive interview. The man known throughout the 90’s as Agent Fox Mulder wants to get the gang back together, namely Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), and begin work on the third X-Files movie.
“That book doesn’t close until somebody dies, really,” Duchovny said in reference to the critically acclaimed FOX TV series. “One of the greatnesses of the show was its open-endedness. It was about possibility. It wasn’t about closure. It just couldn’t be. There is no such thing as that story ever ending. Those characters are forever searching. That’s what they do. Even if we’re not watching them, they’re out there, in some dimension Mulder and Scully are still doing their thing ’cause that’s their nature.”
When asked specifically if Duchovny was hoping to put on the MIB-jacket-and-tie, the actor expressed optimism that series creator Chris Carter would come through in the clutch. “I would love to do another film, or more. I think we’re all game for it. I think Chris Carter is probably working on an idea, so we’ll see. Unfortunately, with the last one, they didn’t spend the money to compete in a summer fashion, and they brought it out in the summer.” For those who saw Mulder and Scully’s last adventure, the last one was a dark, contemplative, small film made on a $25 million dollar budget.
While we all have to wait to see if Duchovny gets his hopes greenlit, the Californication actor will be seen next in Christopher Neil‘s indie comedy Goats.
