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 nobody’s 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 that’s probably never going to happen, every now and then someone involved in X-Files tries to talk up yet another sequel. Luckily, I’m pretty sure it’s just talk.

The latest comes from The Daily Beast where they got David Duchovny talking about X-Files 3. Talking about Fox Mulder’s potential future he says, “As far as the X-Files movie I’d 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 it’s natural for The X-Files to have another movie in 2012, so we’ll see if we get to do it.”

I’m pretty sure that when it comes to getting to do it, he won’t. X-Files: I Want To Believe was widely panned and barely seen. Who’d back another one? Duchovny, though, isn’t taking his cues from Sam Raimi, who recently admitted that the villains in Spider-Man 3 sucked. Nope, he’s still defending this willful turd. He insists, “I was happy with it… I have nothing but respect for [X-Files creator] Chris Carter and the writing staff.” I think that makes him, literally, the only remaining X-Files fan.

Duchovny, you don’t need this shit. You’re 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. You’re living the good life my man, stay out of the X-Files quagmire and enjoy it.
