David Duchovny Talks X-Files 3
X-Files 3 is sort of like the long rumored Arrested Development movie. That is if Arrested Development was a horrible franchise nobodyís cared about since 1998. But in much the same way that every now and then an Arrested Development cast member pops up and trumpets a movie thatís probably never going to happen, every now and then someone involved in X-Files tries to talk up yet another sequel. Luckily, Iím pretty sure itís just talk.
The latest comes from The Daily Beast where they got David Duchovny talking about X-Files 3. Talking about Fox Mulderís potential future he says, ďAs far as the X-Files movie Iíd like to do next, if we get a chance to do it, would be a return to the heart and soul of the mythology, which is the alien-oriented conspiracy. I think itís natural for The X-Files to have another movie in 2012, so weíll see if we get to do it.Ē
Iím pretty sure that when it comes to getting to do it, he wonít. X-Files: I Want To Believe was widely panned and barely seen. Whoíd back another one? Duchovny, though, isnít taking his cues from Sam Raimi, who recently admitted that the villains in Spider-Man 3 sucked. Nope, heís still defending this willful turd. He insists, ďI was happy with itÖ I have nothing but respect for [X-Files creator] Chris Carter and the writing staff.Ē I think that makes him, literally, the only remaining X-Files fan.
Duchovny, you donít need this shit. Youíre in a cable show with lots of naked women. You get paid and all you have to so is stay out of the way while some guy films their breasts. Youíre living the good life my man, stay out of the X-Files quagmire and enjoy it.
