Second X-Files Movie Moving Forward

ON

The X-Files star David Duchovny indicated Saturday during the Television Critics Association press tour that a sequel to the first feature is one step closer to becoming a reality.

“I’m supposed to see a script next week,” Duchovny said, adding that creator Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz wrote the screenplay and that Carter is set to direct.

Duchovny also reiterated past remarks that he and “X-Files” co-star Gillian Anderson “are on board” the follow-up to the 1998 film and the series that ran on Fox from 1993 to 2002.

Duchovny was at TCA promoting his upcoming Showtime comedy series “Californication,” which debuts August 13.
