Details on the X-Files sequel X-Files: I Want To Believe have been almost nonexistant, until now. The film’s plot has leaked out as part of a preview for the film’s movie novelization written by Max Allan Collins. Here is the short semi-spoilerish synopsis:
Mulder and Scully are back in the thrilling novelization of the summer 2008 blockbuster movie based on the classic X-Files TV show! When a group of women are abducted in the wintry hills of rural Virginia, the only clues to their disappearance are the grotesque human remains that begin to turn up in snow banks along the highway. With officials desperate for any lead, a disgraced priest’s questionable “visions” send local police on a wild goose chase and straight to a bizarre secret medical experiment that may or may not be connected to the women’s disappearance. It’s a case right out of The X-Files. But the FBI closed down its investigations into the paranormal years ago. And the best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past. Still, the truth of these horrific crimes is out there somewhere…and it will take Mulder and Scully to find it! (120/0-06-168771-5) (C: 0-1-2) SC, 7×10, 336pgs, FC SRP: $7.99
Who knows if this is actually real or not, but the storyline seems to match with the footage shown at WonderCon. I could also be another planned fake leak to further throw fans off. What do you guys think?
