X-Files fans have been clamoring after a third film in the series for a long time and every time the subject is brought up, the stars and creators always say they’d love to do it. Be that as it may, the decision still lies with 20th Century Fox and they’ve yet to say one way or the other about a third film. That doesn’t stop series creator Chris Carter from talking about it though.
In an interview with Empire, he had this to say about a potential third X-Files film: “I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head. The colonisation date has passed and that is something we wouldn’t ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology.”
Furthermore, though Carter said that should a third film get made, he wants to make an addition to the cast - Simon Pegg.
“Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way.”
