They're game if Fox is, the two stars tell fans at N.Y. celebration of the 20-year anniversary of their classic sci-fi TV series
The truth may be out there, but is another “X-Files” feature film?
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, who starred in the classic Fox sci-fi TV series and the two movies as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, say they’d be in.
“All the principals are on board,” including “X-Files” creator Chris Carter, Duchovny said during a panel discussion at a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the series’ premiere at the The Paley Center for Media in New York Saturday.
“Gillian and I want to do it, so it's really up to Twentieth Century Fox at this point.”
Anderson told fans that if they want another film they should let their voices be heard.
“If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that, then I guess that's what it would be,” she said.
Fox declined comment Sunday, but a third “X Files” movie is probably a long shot.
The original “X Files” made $189 million worldwide in 1998 and the 2008 follow-up “The X-Files: I Want to Believe” brought in $68 million at the global box office.
