X-Files sequel starts filming
X-Files fans rejoice: the sequel really is going to happen. In fact, they've already started filming!
On the right is one of the first pics from the set. David Duchovny has his Fox Mulder hair back, while Gillian Anderson seems to be sporting a new do. But I'll stop talking about hair right now because it's weird.
Creator/director Chris Carter says that they're completely dumping the whole alien mythology storyline from the show, since they already "wrapped up a lot of threads" from the show (really?). Instead, the new flick will settle on a standalone plot, which will not only please old fans but also the new fans that Carter is trying to hook into the movie.
I think it's going to be very weird if they don't at least address the whole aliens-are-going-to-take-over-the-world plot from the show in some way. Oh, and let's hope their son hasn't grown up to become a wacky kid sidekick for the duo.
