If you were an X-Files fan, you will know that December 22, 2012 was supposed to be a big day for civilization – we were supposed to be colonized by aliens.  Did Mulder and Scully do something to save the world?  No one knows but we may find out!

Creator, Chris Carter, is interested in making a third X-Files movie but says the decision will ultimately be made by 20th Century Fox.  The last film didn’t exactly blow anyone away at the box office so that could actually be a bit of a struggle unless the head honchos at the studio have a softy for nerds. As for the cast, he said that “all of us are interested in putting the band back together.”

What about the passing of that special date?  Carter said: ”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.”

Gillian Anderson (Scully) has put forth an idea for a special new addition to the cast – Simon Pegg.  She worked with the British actor on 2008′s How to Lose Friends and Alienate People and told Carter that Pegg is a fan of the series.

Carter added: ”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.”

With Pegg’s convincing history in sci-fi (Star TrekShaun of the DeadHot Fuzz and The World’s End) he’d probably be great in a new X-Files flick.

What do you think?  Should they do one more or was two films enough?

    It would be nice to see both of them together in the same series. And that Gillian Anderson chick. Man ! She’s aged very gracefully. She stills as gorgeous as ever.

      She did age gracefully! But I noticed her face got a bit longer thou. Ageless, good genes, or good surgeon? hmm..

    Gillian is a lesbo and David Duchovny is gay. Lol but I love both of them

    Sadly I’m a little behind, I just finished the entire series of X-files and recently watched both “Fight the Power” and “I want to Believe” I. Hmm, Ok then will wait with the rest of you for the 3rd installment. In the meantime if you want you can sit back and watch the entire series again.. It’s on Hulu and Netflix. http://www.hulu.com/the-x-files sorry you will have to browse through Netflix to find it in the Science Fiction or search for it manually.
