New X-Files Movie Would Be a Return to Form and Have a Role for Simon PeggThe creator of “The X-Files,” Chris Carter, got chatty with Empire Online today regarding the prospects of a new feature film in the franchise. We have the tasty bits for you right here along with the truth which is out there. Or something like that.

Carter revealed that a third film would return to the franchise mythology and have a role available for Simon Pegg, if he were to choose to accept it.

“It’s really up to Twentieth Century Fox, whether they have the will to do it,” he tells Empire. “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 colonization date has passed (according to the series the alien invasion was scheduled to happen on December 22, 2012), 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.”

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Well….now I’m officially disinterested. I LOVED the X-files, even the less than stellar final few seasons, but the one constant that always remained is the fact the alien mythology episodes were my least favorite.

    Give me a monster-of-the-week episode or give me nothing…

      Yeah, it was always at its best with episodes like Grotesque. It got too bogged down in the tedious black goo alien stuff.

        Well in the show’s defense, it’s center point has always been UFO stuff. I’m in complete agreement with you guys, one-off’s and creature episodes were the best. We just can’t be surprised or disappointed if they want to go back to the extraterrestrial well for the feature films.

        I really don’t care about the movies, I saw them and went “eh”, so if a new one comes out I might see it, but I’m perfectly happy with what I have.
