Chris Carter Wants an X-FILES 3 and Wants Simon Pegg Involved

Who wouldn't like to see another "X-Files" adventure with Mulder and Scully? David Duchovny, who portrayed Agent Fox Mulder in the series, expressed interest in returning to the franchise just last year. He would be reuniting with his lovely co-star Gillian Anderson, who played Agent Dana Scully. While the last film "X-Files: I Want to Believe" fell short at the box office, Duchovny as well as series creator Chris Carter, are definitely still interested in a third installment.

While two of the big players are on board, they of course need to secure Anderson and it also still leaves one big component left to be locked; the studios' consent. According to Carter, "It's really up to 20th Century Fox, whether they have the will to do it".

On the approach, Carter states, "I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head. The colonization date has passed and that is something we wouldn't ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology."

Could the band also entail some new, interesting members? According to Carter, Simon Pegg could potentially be that addition. Carter stated, "Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie [How To Lose Friends And Alienate People] and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way."

Pegg is a charming edition to most films, usually utilized as the dopey but lovable, comedic relief. Pegg can currently be seen in Edgar Wright's final installment of his Cornetto trilogy "The World's End", now playing at AMC Theatres.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
