Could "The X-Files" be getting a reboot? The truth might be out there. Frank Spotnitz, a former executive producer on the Fox series, thinks so.
In an interview with Den of Geek, Spotnitz said a reboot is possible.
"I wouldn’t be surprised at all," he said. "I mean, I don’t think I would have anything to do with it but you know, for better or for worse, these things are titles of big corporations, like 'Star Trek' belongs to Paramount and 'The X-Files' belongs to Twentieth Century Fox and it’s a huge asset in their libraries so I can’t imagine they would let it sit languishing forever ... Anything could happen. I just hope that if they do it, they do it well, that’s my only request."
Spotnitz revealed there's no script for the hyped third "X-Files" movie, starring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, even though the two stars seem to be ready to reprise their roles. However, Spotnitz said the movie would be "the climax of the alien colonisation story that began the series."
In August, Anderson said she met with series creator Chris Carter and it was only a matter of convincing Fox to make it. Duchovny also said he was up for it in August 2012.
"I would love to do another film, or more," he told Collider. "I think we’re all game for it. I know I’m kind of perplexed that Fox isn’t more [enthusiastic]."
Anderson can next be seen in "The Fall," a BBC drama, and Duchovny in a new season of "Californication" premiering Sunday, January 13, 2013.
