Composer Mark Snow has confirmed to Upcoming Film Scores that he has signed on to score The X-Files 2, the sequel to the 1998 feature film that followed the phenomenally succesful sci-fi TV series. The film is directed by X-Files creator Chris Carter, who has worked extensively with Mark Snow not only on X-Files, but also on TV series Millennium, Harsh Realm and The Lone Gunmen. 61-year old Snow, who probably is the most prolific composer in television music, has received six Emmy nominations for his X-Files music. His latest feature film score, which came out last year, was a completely different type of project: a collaboration with French veteran director Alain Resnais on his romantic drama Private Fears in Public Places. It resulted in a César Award nomination for the composer. The X-Files 2 is scheduled to premiere on July 28, distributed by 20th Century Fox.
