Unless July’s X Files sequel (still untitled) ends up being the franchise’s equivalent to Waxwork, I’d say the following photo contains a detrimental spoiler. If /Film was the government or Matt Drudge, we might unleash the sirens and Code Red alerts right now. Am I glad I saw them? Not really. Actually, no way! Are they cool? Sure, but I have a distinct “is that it?” comedown. JoBlo had one helluva spy who snapped some photos from the set. As for the photo below, that’s the film’s director and franchise creator, Chris Carter, on the right in blue. As for what’s on the left, if you head for the jump you’ll have no further questions.

An X-Files sequel might actually happen after-all. I know, I know, we’ve said this before. Show helmer Chris Carter has said this before, and the stars have SAID – THIS – BEFORE. But this time it might be for real. Series and film co-star David Duchovny made an appearance for his new Showtime series Californication during the Television Critics Association press tour, and revealed that a script and tentative production schedule is already in place.
“I’m actually supposed to a script next week! Before I would just say that [there was a movie] because they told me, but now, after talking to Chris [Carter] — he’s been giving me progress reports — and he actually called yesterday, and said ‘Next week, you should have something to read.’” Duchovny said at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. When asked if it would be a stand alone story, David replied: “It should be. It should be a one-off, yeah.”
Duchovny also revealed that the current plan is to start shooting in November 2007 for a Summer 2008 release. I’ll believe it when I see it. I didn’t follow the show but enjoyed the first film. This seems to be a reoccurring occurrence for me (and many of the people I know). Another example would be Star Trek (I’ve seen and enjoyed most of the movies, didn’t watch the series). But many people loved this show, and I can see why. I’m currently watching The 4400 which many people usually compare to X-Files. Although some people would probably say that it’s becoming more X-Men than X-Files as of the last season. Thanks to IGN and THR for contributing to this story.
