The X Files 2 – Mulder and Scully are back


The X files are due to be re-opened, with Mulder and Scully back on the paranormal investigations. After the cult, then mainstream, then back to cult success of the X-Files a movie was always a strong likelihood, with the first X-Files movie being released way back in 1998.

Ten years on and after lots of rumours and the anticipation of the fans, both Duchovny and Anderson have confirming the scripts were finished and that the release date is due for summer 2008. Chris Carter will be directing and co wrote the script as well. The rumour mill was speculating that shooting was due to start this month Dec 2007 in Vancouver, with a stand alone story forming the basis for this the second X Files movie.

Both actors Duchovny and Anderson have always had the X-files clouding somewhat over their careers, despite them both doing many other projects since the series finished. The characters of Mulder and Scully were excellent and their contrasting stances on what they investigated and their complex relationship is what helped to make the show the phenomenon it was.
