X-Files 2 Movie Underway!
That's right, we bring you the news so fast, even imdb.com doesn't have the info yet... According to Reuters, David Duchovny statsed during the Television Critics Association press tour that he's due to see a script for the sequel next week and that he and co-star Gillian Anderson are both "on board" for the film.
The new film has Chris Carter (creator) and Frank Spotnitz writing the screen play and Carter is slated to direct. The reason for the huge delay on the sequel was due to a lawsuit (now settled) between Carter and 20th Century Fox Television alleging breach of contract, contractual interference and payment issues. Since that has been apparently taken care of, the film can now progress and the X-Files sage can continue - supposedly where it left off.
One has to wonder how the ages of the characters will play into the film, though at just 4-5 years both may be able to pass it off without a second thought.

How in the blazes is did I miss that I saw the film a few months back on rental and I didnt notice (Gillian Andersons) screen credit as Sarah Merrit The Last King of Scotland (2006) I was watching the girl in some hot scenes, I guess it was the hairstyle that throw me off. Now I can see I can see her sexy looking nose.
She is a total sex goddess, whatever she is in.
robmlisanti, post: 285728I also enjoyed the first one, but agree that there is plenty of room for improvement. Some of the TV episodes were great, so the potential is certainly there.
I liked the first movie, it was Good not great…hope this one is better.
The smoking man, I can never remember the actors name, was on the first episode of The Masters of Science Titled The Awakening where he played the President of the USA. Terry O'Quinn was also in the episode and it was very good. The show is running on ABC on Saturday evenings at 10 PM so you know it will get killed in the ratings.
Gillian did have a child while taping the X-Files but that was around the second season. She had another child last fall. I thought she not only looked good in The King of Scotland but did a great job of acting in it. It was nice to see her with a fairly large part in a large movie instead of the more indie stuff she typically does.
While the first movie was not great it was good and I break it out once a year for some good fun. I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the next one.
BTW, were her pictures doctored?
