He may find a role for Simon Pegg...
In an interview with Empire magazine, series creator Chris Carter spoke about the possibility of a third X-Files movie.
He said: "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 colonisation 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."
He was also told about several of the X-Files references in the TV show Spaced, and was asked if he had seen it. He then discussed the possibility of Simon Pegg appearing in a third film.
He added: "No, but Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie [2008's How To Lose Friends And Alienate People] and told me that he was a big fan. 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."
