Actor David Duchovny said in New York he would like to star in another film based on his Fox TV sci-fi/mystery TV series, “The X-Files.”?
Created by Chris Carter and co-starring Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the show originally ran from 1993 through 2002 and spawned a 1998 film version, called “The X-Files.”?
Asked if a sequel is in the works, Duchovny said, “It’s always on the horizon.”
“I’m still very much in touch with Chris Carter, Gillian. Both Gillian and I are positive about it. It’s not like we’re running from it,” he said. “There are some legal things that need to be resolved over at Fox.”
Although no script has been written yet for a sequel, “There is an idea,” Duchovny said.
The star of the new big-screen comedy, “Trust the Man,” denied, however, reports he is planning to take over the role of Bruce Banner from actor Eric Bana in an upcoming sequel to the 2003 film, “Hulk.”
“No,” Duchovny said. “I don’t know where that came from.”
