While promoting his upcoming Showtime series "Californication" at the TCAs on Saturday, David Duchovny said that he's supposed to see a script for a sequel to the X-Files movie next week. Stirring up years-old speculation about the project, Duchovny confirmed that "X-Files" creator "Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz wrote the screenplay and that Carter is set to direct." He also assured everyone that both he and Gillian Anderson "'are on board' the follow-up to the 1998 film and the series that ran on Fox from 1993 to 2002."
The question is, are audiences still on board? Is the "X-Files" still as relevant? Will the generation of viewers still be interested in seeing an "X-Files" movie, and will a new generation of "Heroes" and "Lost" fans enjoy seeing an "X-Files" movie?
