Gillian Anderson up for new ‘X Files’ film

The truth is still out there. We still want to believe. And maybe - just maybe - Dana Scully will reunite with Fox Mulder for another crack at The X-Files.

Gillian Anderson is certainly willing to bring back her most famous character, who teamed up with David Duchovny's Mulder for the TV show and two feature films, 1998's The X-Files: Fight the Future and 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

The X-Files creator Chris Carter has been "writing (a script for a third film) for a while," Anderson said during interviews for the shot-in-Toronto TV series Hannibal, in which she plays a psychotherapist who counsels Hannibal Lecter (Casino Royale's Mads Mikkelsen) in a three-episode story arc.

(Fun fact: the character of Scully was inspired in part by Jodie Foster's portrayal of Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal, which serves as a prequel to Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon, debuts April 4 on City and NBC.)

"I know that he's got a lot of other things on his plate," Anderson said of X-Files creator Carter. "I don't know what level of his inbox that's in right now, but I think we all have it in our minds as something we hope to revisit."

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last week, Duchovny also said he'd gladly return to The X-Files.

"Chris Carter and Gillian Anderson and I, we're always on board," he said.

Yet even without them, the adventures of Mulder and Scully are continuing.

Publisher IDW just announced a comic book is being developed. Carter will reportedly act as the new spin-off's "executive producer."
