The X-Files is my favorite TV show of all time, so when I heard that they were making a second movie, I was overjoyed. But that was years ago and it started to look like it was all a bunch of hooey. Well, the movie officially started filming in this past December and today we have some hard evidence for you: pictures of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully from the set on The X-Files 2! And here’s even more good news straight from creator Chris Carter regarding what kind of movie we can expect:
“We spent a lot of time on (the mythology) and wrapped up a lot of threads”. “We want a stand-alone movie, not a mythology conspiracy one.” (Source)
It’s great to see the two of them together again and the fact that the movie won’t deal with the alien conspiracy that dragged the show down is good to hear. And is it just me or is Scully even hotter now than she was back in the day? The X-Files 2 is set to hit theatres on July 25th, 2008.
