'NO MORE X FILES!'
Gillian wants to file the show away
Apparently even 5 years after they worked together, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovony still can't agree on anything. The pair, who has a notorious prickly relationship while making The X Files, seem to be at loggerheads over reuniting for a second movie. Duchovony recently told interviewers that a sequel was pretty much on the go. "we're hoping to get together just under a year from now and make another film' he said, adding that Chris Carter is currently writing the script and a deal should be signed imminently for a 2008 shoot. Of course, much will depend on whether Gillian wants to reprise her role as Agent Scully - and the signs are not good. In a recent interview, Anderson says she hated making the TV show and has no plans to return 'I couldn't get out of it. I didn't have a choice' She railed. 'The reason I stayed so long was because the only way I could get more money was top commit myself to doing if for another couple of years'. Sounds like it's going to be a real fun shoot. If it ever actually happens.....
Gillian Anderson Talks 'X-Files 2' on Her Website

The excitement for the next cinematic installment of the X-Files continues to build! As I told you before, there has been some developments lately regarding another movie based on the very successful 1990s TV show. When last we had word, former TV show Exec. Producer Frank Spotnitz let slip that he was actively developing a new X-Files movie. This was also corroborated by series and movie star David Duchovny during a recent radio interview. So, at that time, all signs looked good for the new film to move forward.
And now, we've got yet another person weighing in on the subject of the X-Files. Not just any person, by the way, but a person who should be as in-the-know as David Duchovny -- series and movie co-star Gillian Anderson. Over at her personal blog, Anderson details many different X-Files-related items including her feelings about the TV show and her co-star Duchovny, why she sometimes both hated and loved the X-Files and how much she's looking forward to doing the movie and working with Duchovny again. Even though, as she says at the site regarding her co-star: "Do I imagine that when we do the film together we won't hate each other for a few hours during the filming? No. We will. Vehemently."
As someone who's done some TV in his time, I can relate completely to her love/hate relationship with the show and her co-star. It's inevitable, as Anderson recalls, that when you spend so much time with people under such long, arduous conditions, you'll start to dislike them -- often intensely at times. It's just the nature of the business. That said, I'm glad she came out with it and hopefully put things to rest once and for all. Of course, the most important bit of knowledge gained from her post is that there is indeed a new X-Files movie and she will be working on it. As Anderson says in her post: "And that's that."
