Not the actress, just the character.Â But here’s some news on the new movie:
LOS ANGELES â€” The sequel is out there.
The conspiracy theories will not be.
Ten years after the first film and six years after the show went off the air, The X-Files returns to theaters with Fox Mulder, Dana Scully â€” and a lot riding on the bet that fans want more of the FBI’s paranormal-investigating agents.
The film, which remains without a formal title, will dump the long-running “mythology” plotline â€” that aliens live among us and are part of a colonizing effort â€” that made it one of the most popular television shows in the late 1990s but ultimately drove away some viewers who found it too complex and ambiguous.
“We spent a lot of time on (the mythology) and wrapped up a lot of threads” when the show went off the air in 2002, says Chris Carter, creator of the series and director of the new movie. “We want a stand-alone movie, not a mythology conspiracy one.”
Anyone else use to be in love with a TV character – not the actor, but the character?Â I wrote about it in my old blog way back when.Â
