David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson Talk X-files Season 11 (E! Red Carpet)

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson on “X-Files” Revival | E! Live from the Red Carpet

David and Gillian answered several X-files related questions about the upcoming Season 11. When asked about the Season 10 cliffhanger with Mulder and Scully, both seem to be in the dark about what Chris Carter has planned for their characters. “Chris Carter has not told me yet whether I’ve managed to save the human race” Gillian told E! “But given that we’re doing ten episodes that I save it for ten episodes worth of time.”

David also commented on something that MANY fans have literally been begging for on twitter, blogs and other social media platforms – the possibility of him contributing to the writing team “I don’t think that the people playing the characters are the best judges of where the show should go. Nor do I think the fans are to be honest with you”

(insert screaming face emoji here)

I do think that the show would benefit from David contributing to the story arcs as he did in the past. Some of my favorite mythology episode arcs were those that he developed with Chris Carter. They were some of the best episodes of the series in my opinion.

In regards to doing an X-files musical episode David laughed and said “I don’t think that’s a good idea but I’d be down for it. Sure.” Gillian on the other hand made it clear it was not something she would want to do “No. Nah-uh. No. No. No” she said.

While we clearly adore David’s music and have no doubt they could both make it work, I would have to side with Gillian on this one.

Excited for The X-files Season 11 yet? We’re definitely getting there! Here is something to hold you over until we (hopefully) start getting set pictures in August.

The elephant in the room – David’s arm is in a sling! We don’t know what happened but we hope it wasn’t too painful and hope he’s on his way to a speedy recovery. Between his injury and Gillian Anderson’s broken foot, it was an interesting sight on stage at the Webby Awards. David presented Gillian with the Best Actress award for her critically acclaimed role on The Fall.

The Webby awards ceremony will be available to watch on Youtube tomorrow.

In the meantime, we have some clips we have gathered from around the Twitterverse.

The X-Files: Cold Cases

  • This title is scheduled to be released on 07-18-17

Publisher’s Summary

The series that had a generation looking to the sky gets a breathtaking audio reprise in an original full-cast dramatization featuring actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning to voice FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris – with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter – and adapted specifically for the audio format by aural auteur Dirk Maggs (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Alien: Out of the Shadows), Cold Cases marks yet another thrilling addition to the pantheon of X-Files stories. Featuring a mind-blowing and otherworldly soundscape of liquefying aliens, hissing creatures, and humming spacecraft, listeners get to experience the duo’s investigations like never before.
Set after the events of The X-Files: I Want to Believe and providing additional backstory to the incidents that pulled Mulder and Scully out of reclusion prior to 2016’s miniseries revival, a database breach at FBI headquarters allows an unknown group to access and capitalize on those investigations left unsolved – dubbed cold cases – by the secret department once known as The X-Files. As friends and foes of the agency long thought gone begin to inexplicably reappear, former agents Mulder and Scully come out of anonymity to face a growing conspiracy that involves not only their former department but the US government and forces not of this world.
Here, fans are treated once again to Mulder and Scully’s irreplicable chemistry as only the series’ leads could deliver, Duchovny’s deadpan and cynical aloofness finding its natural counterpoint in Anderson’s unwavering intelligence and rigidity. Appearances from series regulars and the actors who made them fan favorites round out this must-listen arc: the gruff, no-BS righteousness of Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi); the distinctive click-puff of the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis); and the stooge-like hijinks of three beloved conspiracy theorists called the Lone Gunmen (Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood).
Whether you’re a believer or a skeptic, find your “I Want to Believe” poster. Break out that makeshift alien stiletto. Grab a pack of Morley cigarettes.
The truth is out there. You just have to listen.

TV LINE: The X-Files Update: ‘Significant Talks’ Underway With David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for Season 11

By /

Source: http://tvline.com/2016/08/08/the-x-files-season-11-spoilers-mulder-scully-fox/

The hardball negotiations are out there.

“Significant talks” are underway with key X-Files players Chris Carter, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on an 11th season of the Fox phenom, Fox entertainment president David Madden confirmed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour Monday. “We would obviously love to do another season [but] schedules are hard. We’re working hard to get this done.”

In an interview with our sister site Deadline last month, Anderson insisted she had yet to be approached. “I’m open to the conversation, though they haven’t come to us yet,” she said, presumably referring to both her and Duchovny. “I have no clue when they’re going to. I’m getting on with the rest of my life and I’m booking other jobs, so if it is indeed something that they would like to continue, then that conversation will need to be had. And I have no idea when that will be able to take place at this juncture.”

Regarding the decidedly mixed reviews that greeted the recent six-episode 10th season (particularly that much-derided finale), Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden said at Monday’s TCA presser, “The show was off the air for a very long time, and was introduced to a variety of new viewers [via online platforms]… They had a challenge of filling in the mythology and explaining where the characters were and how they got to where they are now. I think going forward there won’t be the same obligation to reset the series.”

X-Files Talk: Why 6-episode Season Every Two Years is Perfect!

Talking X-Files and Why I Think 6-episode Season is Perfect!

editorial by Walt Frasier follow via twitter @waltfrasier

I had a very interesting conversation yesterday. I was returning from set for a new HBO show filming on Long Island. Wrapped early, I had a private van ride back to Manhattan with another actor and a few stacks of costumes headed back to wardrobe in Brooklyn after our midtown drop-off.

The driver was a big sci-fi fan with a special place in his heart for X-Files. As a 1990’s teenager he watched The X-Files with his dad. (How many 30 something Philes can relate to that?) He does not watch a lot of TV now, nor has he been to the movies in three years. As a teamster driver for numerous film/TV sets and father of a 2 year old, he catches up via online streaming on his phone as shows hit Netflix, Amazon, HBO go etc – in between rides for actors like me.

While stuck in the Queens parking lot approaching the midtown tunnel, he promised to watch Season 10 the second it hits Netflix.

Excited he asked, “Are we getting more? ” “When?” He has not seen Season 10 and already asking…

My response was “yes, 2018, I think.”

So that started an entirely new discussion, one based more in our mutual knowledge of the industry.

This morning, cleaning out gmail, I stumbled across the article “David Duchovny knows the X-Files revival’s problem: Not enough of it” on AV Club. This convinced me to share the argument I made yesterday…

When you break it down all TV, film, youtube, podcasts, music, etc are “content”. Producing is all about creating content, and that has three major steps – pre-production (writing, fundraising, contracting/casting), production (filming/recording, editing, including post-production here) and distribution (marketing and getting content to you via TV, online, movie screen etc).

Philes all know about fundraising with the 2008 movie. We (most of us) wanted another big Alien Mythology episode.  Big Alien movies cost $100 million. Chris got $30 million.

It would appear the money is not there to do Star Trek or Star Wars every 2-3 years. That would take 100 million views. We delivered about 10 million.

X-FilesI think at this point in time a full X-Files series that includes David and Gillian is never going to happen. Both stars have other projects, kids and live outside LA/Vancouver. Neither is a hungry 20-30 something actor willing to give their lives 150% to a single project for 30 weeks/year.

I bet there have been numerous talks at FOX about how could one do X-Files without David & Gillian. Not that they want to cut out out faves, but how not to be held hostage by stars’ schedules and whims. But I think Seasons 8 & 9 of the original show, as well as the nature of the true fans, X-Files is all about Mulder & Scully, which can only be David & Gillian. No matter how hard Chris tries, his characters are far bigger than his stories. Slipping in some young hot look a likes was a total #FAIL in 2016, even as a joke. We are not CW types, right? So far FOX gets it. For now…

Chris really likes doing monster of the week.

The six episode season every two years makes complete sense.

Think about the intense online chatter throughout 2015 that built the audience for the January 2016 season. In 2002 we all needed a break – cast, crew and fans. 9 seasons of 20+ episodes is very hard to maintain. But by 2008 we were more than ready for more. By 2016 we were starving. By March 2016 we were “WTF?” “WE WANT MORE!” “WE WANT MORE!” “WE WANT MORE!”… rioting in the streets… Sorry, I got carried away there…

But am I the only one on February 22, 2016 at 9pm that screamed at the TV “FU MR. CARTER!!!” We are DEMANDING more…

If we could get another dose every two years like Trekkies and Fanboys (Star Wars – we need a new less sexist fan name), we would get our fix. We would be happy with a movie every two years to learn what happens with this conspiracy. But with a six episode arc Chris can have his monster of the week stories. TV is the writers medium. (Film is for directors. Stage for actors.) For TV the writer runs the show, while directors come and go. Chris can shape his baby, reflecting the times – politics, scandals etc.

Meanwhile we flock to see Gillian and David on stage – acting and singing. We flocked to David talking about his novels, most of us actually reading them. We are watching their other projects. They realize the bump all their work gets from the X-Files fandom being satisfied (strung along lol). A summer shooting X-Files every two years delivers a nice paycheck every actor wants without the burnout every actor hates and the platform every artist needs to promote their other work.

WIN-WIN-WIN!!! (Production – Cast – Fans)

Now to make this work, LISTEN UP CHRIS!!!

  • X-FILES is MULDER & SCULLY. They don’t have to be married or lovers (Speaking for myself you crazy shippers lol) but they need to be together. Girl power Scully and young protege red head was weird. After 23 years, when we see two young look a likes, we don’t think “HA HA”, we think “WTF CHRIS?”. Jilted lovers? Yes! That’s a fair analogy. You have our love but need to earn our trust. We’ve been hurt too many times.
  • X-FILES should be PERFECT for 6-episodes. NO EXCUSE for BABYLON. You don’t have to write 20 episodes pulling crap out of ass to get another week out. You have a team. Let that team play. Bring back Frank, Vince, Howard… At least consult Howard next time you take on terrorists. Call Vince regarding drugs. Those two guys could have solved all nonsense regarding s10e5. Take a cue from Lucas. You are the Genius. But let the minions translate your genius to fully flesh out a perfect script.
  • MORE SKINNER. For many – FOR ME – best moment in 2008 was Skinner showing up to save Mulder. It should have been Skinner at CSM’s mansion February 22, 2016. Mitch is all over the map promoting this project. We love Mitch. Skinner is in the opening credits, but I think he appeared less than Season 1 this year. WTF?
  • Take a moment and think of an END GAME. The “WE HAVE BEEN WRONG ALL ALONG” thing has been played out too often already. I know the point is we can never truly now the true nature of a conspiracy, hence the very nature of the conspiracy theory nut. But as I tell my 10 year old comedy students, don’t tell, SHOW! Action much more interesting than discussion for most. Artsy fartsy cerebral shit is a snore to 95% of the population, no matter how much B-Roll you flash over the monologue of crazy conspiracy nuts. Even “NEVER ENDING STORY” had an end. I have met you. And even in that brief moment, I have seen the wink behind the twinkle. I get it. Now its your turn to get it. (Only exception, the conversation between David and Rhys. THAT is how you do “Dinner with Andre” for the masses. Two amazing performers with amazing writing about real issues. Message heard and entertained at same time. I could sat through that grave yard scene if it lasted two hours.)
  • I for one would love to see a sequel to Founders Mutation. I loved Disney’s “Escape to Witch Mountain” and that brother/sister team was a fun throw back to that classic – not so much remake with Dwayne. Or the bigger point, there are a lot of unsolved cases out there from 202 episodes. Most did not get the happy ending Were-Lizard enjoyed. Tombs and Pusher got call backs. We barely got to know Kyle and Molly. Why reinvent the wheel?

So we will see you in 2018, and daily on twitter till then…

PS – EIGHT Episodes could be cool…

Overview

Presto Rating 4.5
Critics 88%
Audience 91%

THE X-FILES is a drama about an unconventional FBI agent, Fox Mulder. Mulder takes it upon himself to investigate a group of unsolved cases, known as the “X-Files,” that he believes involve paranormal phenomena. To keep tabs on his work–and in the hopes of debunking his theories–the FBI teams him up with Dana Scully, a young, skeptical agent who has a degree in medicine and a strong bias toward the scientific. As the pair works to solve these unexplained cases, Mulder’s strong belief in the forces of the unknown continues to challenge Scully’s rational mind. Their relationship grows more complex with each case, slowly emerging as a heady mix of professional competitiveness, witty repartee, and a mutual attraction that is heightened by the intensity of their tasks and the close proximity in which they work.

Presto Review

“In many ways, The X-Files was a show before its time and seems to fit perfectly into the modern television landscape where binging is big and dark, absorbing storylines have never been so sought after.”
