A few days ago we told you that Chris Carter had a role in mind for Simon Pegg should a new The X-Files feature film ever come to pass, and today we have some comments from Pegg himself. Is he down? Read on!
Pegg told The Sun newspaper: ”I was a big fan of ‘The X Files’ and I’ve become friends with Gillian since. I’ve always loved that show so it’s definitely something I’d consider. It’s a great story and it would be nice to see it continue [but] it has to be with David Duchovny and with Gillian.”
“It’s really up to Twentieth Century Fox, whether they have the will to do it,” said Carter in an earlier interview. “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.”
