Chris Carter Talks Third X-Files Movie, Says He Wants to Cast Simon Pegg

In an interview with Empire, he had this to say about a potential third X-Files film:  “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.”

Furthermore, though Carter said that should a third film get made, he wants to make an addition to the cast – Simon Pegg.

“Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie 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.”
