Casting chops and changes are made on a regular basis. But which films were drastically altered because of the departure of their A-list leading man? Have a gander inside to see.
While the first X-Files movie - release during the height of the series' popularity in 1998 - was a box office hit, the same can't be said its a sequel. Released in 2008, a full decade after the first one, The X-Files: I Want To Believe cost only $35 million to make, but wound up only making $20.9 here and $47 million abroad.
Talking with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, Duchovny was ostensibly there to promote the sixth season of Californication. When talk turned to The X-Files, the actor was quick to confess he's hoping for a third movie from this currently dormant franchise.
Not to be confused with the terrible Billy Zane comic adaptation, Todd Robinson’s Phantom might make submarines relevant again, and possibly also make Ed Harris relevant again

David Duchovny reveals a third installment is being written, and they’re all pretty much just waiting on a go-ahead from Fox. If it ever does happen, Duchovny says the franchise will shoot a little closer to its roots
The Joneses is one of those movies, like The Truman Show, that makes me wonder just how far from reality the premise really, actually strays. Why wouldn’t companies get out there and place people among the country’s elite in order to move more product?
They get to live in a beautiful gated community, have a magnificent home and enjoy all of life’s luxuries under one condition: they get their wealthy neighbors to want what they have. The Joneses are actually not a real family at all
The social satire The Joneses was dubbed one of the more commercial films in the Toronto Film Festival and now Roadside is taking advantage of that appeal by acquiring the domestic distribution rights.
X-Files 3 is sort of like the long rumored Arrested Development movie. That is if Arrested Development was a horrible franchise nobody’s cared about since 1998. But in much the same way that every now and then
