Untitled X Files Sequel joins Summer 2008 line-up

When I posted the sequel and remake line up for summer 2008 the response was unique, everything from: "...Maybe 07 was THE year" (Art) to "2008 won't be the year of the sequel. Can we say creativity?" (Will).

And my favorite comment: "How far are those stupid pants gonna travel!" (Andrea)

But in addition to The Dark Knight, Prince Caspian, Mummy 4, Indiana Jones 4 and a handful of others...big news was announced as Variety announces that the untitled X-files sequel (X-Files 2? nah!) will be released July 25th, 2008. Just over 10 years after the last X Files movie was released in theaters.

Creator Chris Carter is to begin filming X-Files 2 in December. (That is after he finds those traveling pants!)

is that so wrong? said...

I can't wait! Especially because it's supposed to be a scary monster-of-the-week type story instead of overwrought conspiracy nonsense.

What're the odds Doggett and Monica will get some good supporting roles?

As I said on Reel Fanatic, I can't say I am terribly excited about another X-Files movie. I would hope it would be like the earlier seasons (which were great), but I fear it might be like the last few...

so wait. Is it a conspiracy storyline episode (aliens in black oil, etc) or is it a non-storyline episode?

Wasn't the end of the world supposed to happen by now?

As an X-Files fan I'm both excited and conflicted. I'd love for a movie franchise that could run with the same standards seen in seasons 1-5. (1-7 if I'm feeling particularly generous.) But I loathe any storyline that incorporates anything that happened post the Duchovny years on the X-Files and I'm horrified at the prospect of including Doggett, Reyes, et al.

@ ITSW, Mercurie, jeff & kat,

i too hope it's more like earlier episodes, less about the "bigger storyline," etc. Please Chris Carter...hear our voice!
