Simon Pegg To Be In Third “X-Files” Movie


“X-Files” show creator Chris Carter revealed that a third film would be a return to the shows mythology (much better then a standalone story like the second film) and will have a role for Simon Pegg in it, who is himself a fan of the show. This is some of what he revealed in an exclusive interview with Empire magazine.

“It’s really up to Twentieth Century Fox, whether they have the will to do it, 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 [in the series, the date for the alien invasion was December 22, 2012 – Ed.] 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.“

And on Simon Pegg’s part, “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.”

Please, please give “The X-Files” a proper conclusion I beg of you… all mighty movie gods.
