David Duchovny Is 'Perplexed' That X-Files 3 Hasn't Been Made Yet

David Duchovny wants another x-files movie to happen

And we bet a lot of X-Files fans are too!

It's only natural that after a week of rumors surrounding David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson's possibly-but-probably-not romantic relationship that we start talking about X-Files 3.

Mulder's reps firmly denied any interest in dating Scully, but that doesn't mean he isn't itching to do another movie "or more" with her!

While promoting his indie comedy Goats, the 52-year-old actor (yes, he's 52 and no, our eyes can't believe it either) was asked about the future of the series that shot him to fame in the 90s. Here's what he had to say about the X-Files and why there should more of it:

"That book doesn’t close until somebody dies, really. One of the greatnesses of the show was its open-endedness. It was about possibility. It wasn’t about closure. It just couldn’t be. There is no such thing as that story ever ending. Those characters are forever searching. That’s what they do. Even if we’re not watching them, they’re out there, in some dimension. Mulder and Scully are still doing their thing ‘cause that’s their nature.

I would love to do another film, or more. I think we’re all game for it. I know I’m kind of perplexed that Fox isn’t more [enthusiastic]. Here’s a homegrown property that you don’t have to go buy, like f*ckin’ Green Lantern or something, to make it. Here you’ve got an actual action franchise that’s your own. It’s weird to me, but I’m not an executive. I don’t know if they made the Green Lantern either, but I’m just using that as an example of, 'Why make that film? Why not make a homegrown franchise that is excellent, and that has proven to be excellent and interesting?' I don’t get it, but that’s not my business."

For not being his business, he does have a pretty good idea of why 2008's I Want To Believe was not the hit the studio was hoping for, as he continued:

"I think Chris [Carter] is probably working on an idea, so we’ll see. Unfortunately, with the last one, they didn’t spend the money to compete in a summer fashion, and they brought it out in the summer. It should be a summer film. It should be an action film. But, the last one we made was not. The last one we made was a dark, contemplative, small $25 million film. It was basically an independent film. When you come out against Batman, it’s not going to happen. You’re not going to be sold as an independent film, and you’re not going to compete against Batman with $25 million."

He brings up a good point. If you want it to be a hit, you've got to spend the money to compete with hits!

If they ever produce a final chapter for Mulder and Scully, we hope it's BIG and action-packed. Maybe those aliens will have finally colonized this planet since both of the FBI's top paranormal experts have been enjoying retirement too much to keep watch.

    Not romantic? Not interested in dating? Mulder and Scully have a child together. The attraction they had to each other was a big part of the plotline.

    Perez Hilton annoys me, oh and I realize the irony and stupidity of coming here to post this instead of just not coming here all together so get that out of your comments now. I've never even been to this site before the David and Gillian thing but I have been aware of him and now tha I checked him out he just annoys me even more, but free country and free speech, can't deny him that.

    Hey Perez, lots of people look great when they are in their "50's". Your own ethnicity has a lot to do with it. Unfortunately, most Cuban-Americans suffer from what is called early "Going-to-Seed" syndrome (an inherited trait). It's caused by all of the inbreeding that occurs from living on an island–and can become part of a self-destructive "Look-at-me! I'm a Big Frog!" condition that makes complete strangers want to slap you. Your mother's affliction demonstrates one of the more obtuse forms, where the patient actually takes on a Zombie-robot characteristic as part of the overall deterioration. The bright news is that, given enough time, the worst cases usually dry up from lack of attention. There have been some resistant cases (labeled "False Queen") noted, but these rare messes only make up 2% of the general population.
