According to World Entertainment News Network, David Duchovny has confirmed that both he and Gillian Anderson will star in a sequel to the 1998 movie.
Duchovny portrayed FBI agent Fox Mulder, and Anderson his partner DanaScully, in the original movie and the cult favorite series on Fox.
As to what the movie will be about, Duchovny says:
“Chris [Carter] and Frank [Spotnitz] are going over the story. It’s a story they’ve had for a few years but we haven’t all settled on the fact that we wanted to do it, so now they’re hammering it out.”
Fans are speculating as to whether the sequel will finally provide some long-awaited answers. In an interview with Empire Magazine, Anderson suggested the new movie would be a stand alone story, in part to attract more than the die hard fan.
I suggest we “trust no one” until we see the trailer. With luck we won’t have to wait too long.
