The Sci-Fi Movie Page (here) talked to scriptwriter-producer Frank Spotnitz and get some details about a possible X-Files 3. Frank Spotnitz still wants a third opus in the X-Files movie series even if the X-Files 2 didn’t perform as well as expected. He has an excuse out of his hat to explain the poor results of the second film:
I’d rather say that the absence of aliens has more to do with it than Batman though… And 20th Century Fox isn’t in a hurry to green light X-Files…
But Frank Spotnitz states that did well overseas and that he expects it do well on DVD. So he is adamant at making a third movie with Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) that he may go alone to produce it. He’s already thinking about a potential plot for X-Files 3:
If I may give an advice to Frank Spotnitz he should focus on aliens in the movie X-Files 3 and maybe also develop what happened to Scully’s toddler. It would make a really great X-Files 3 movie!
