They're going out there again

Well, now, this is news.
Twentieth Century Fox has at long last unveiled a release date for its forever-in-the-works X-Files sequel, announcing that Mulder and Scully will be reuniting on the big screen June 25, 2008.
I have to admit, this film has not been anywhere near my radar screen for many a year, but it's kind of cool, I guess. Dana Scully and Fox Mulder and company were one of the great TV teams of all time, and anything that raises skepticism about the benevolence of our rulers is a good thing.

Sounds like they're out to make a horror thriller rather than extend the "mythology" of The X-Files, which is too bad. But it'll be nice to see the old gang back together, as much of them as they manage to gather. I wouldn't mind seeing Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish as agents Doggett and Reyes again, but that might put me in the minority.

The list of 2008 movies already includes Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Star Trek, The Dark Knight, Iron Man, The Time Traveler's Wife, The Incredible Hulk, the 22nd James Bond film and a remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. Now this. Could be an interesting year.

If this movie is gonna be released next summer, Carter & Co. have to move their fannies pretty darn fast. Last I heard, they didn't even have a script.
