If you're an X-FILES fan, than chances are you've already seen this. If you head over to

others. THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE is directed by the series creator Chris Carter
from a script written by him and long term collaborator Frank Spotnitz.
Whilst details of the story are being kept under wraps in order to prevent plot spoilers,
Chris Carter has said that he wanted to make a film that would appeal to everyone
“There's a whole new audience I want to introduce to THE X-FILES, this is a stand-alone
movie and it is not a mythology, conspiracy movie.” The film will be released in the US on
July 25th and in the UK on August 1st.
According to comingsoon.net, David Duchovny may be reprising his role a Agent Mulder in
the new X FILES movie. Years after talking about the sequel, and almost 10 years after
the first feature, 20th Century is finally ready to start production on THE X FILES 2 with
the actor in place to reprise his role of Special Agent Fox Mulder. Gillian Anderson is also
expected to be back on board to play Special Agent Dana Scully. Shooting is scheduled to
begin on December 10 in Vancouver under the direction of series creator Chris Carter.
Carter and Frank Spotnitz wrote the script. The studio is referring to the film in casting
breakdowns as "Done One."
The popular series ran on Fox from 1993 to 2002. Rob Bowman directed the first feature,
which hit theaters on June 19, 1998. No details on the plot have been released, so at this
point we can expect anything. Considering that it's THE X FILES, we can expect
something bizarre and mysterious.
