Pro­ducer puts The X-files ru­mours out there

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

Frank Spotnitz hints Fox may be work­ing on a re­boot of The X-Files. ‘‘I wouldn’t be sur­prised at all,’’ Spotnitz tells sci­ence-fic­tion site Den of Geek. ‘‘You know, for bet­ter or for worse, th­ese things are ti­tles of big cor­po­ra­tions, like Star Trek be­longs to Para­mount and The X-Files be­longs to 20th Cen­tury Fox. It’s a huge as­set in their li­braries so I can’t imag­ine they would let it sit lan­guish­ing for­ever.’’

‘‘Mul­der and Scully: The Col­lege Years?’’ the in­ter­viewer asks. ‘‘Any­thing could hap­pen,’’ Spotnitz replies. ‘‘Re­boot­ing would not mean the re­turn of David Du­chovny and Gil­lian An­der­son, who orig­i­nated the star­ring roles in the se­ries in 1993. New, younger ac­tors would be cast in the lead roles – as has been done with other re­cent re­makes of hit shows like Hawaii Five-O and Bionic Woman.’’
