The Truth: Writer & Producer Frank Spotnitz

It was heartening to hear Bob Schultz say at the beginning of his interview with Frank Spotnitz that he’s been to many screenwriters’ festivals and that The London Screenwriters Festival is one of the best festivals he’s ever seen. I happen to agree, even though LSF is actually the only screenwriters festival I’ve ever attended. The truth is that be it two people or six hundred there is something very special about a communion of screenwriters in a room, and while I’ve been blown away on a number of occasions this year, here in this room I feel that creative kinsh ...

Gillian Anderson, on life after the X-Files

Gillian Anderson: happier with short-term projects.

GILLIAN Anderson found fame as a sceptical alien hunter on the X-Files but her discovery of period drama, and small indie film roles have brought her real contentment. When Gillian Anderson arrives for our interview she has to take a moment before we begin. She’s moving house tomorrow and looks distinctly discombobulated. “I just need to put my mind in the zone,” she says with a polite smile. “Too many things going on.” She rests her face in her hands for a few seconds while she composes herself, takes a breath and switches on. Moving house is a stressful busines ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson: 'The X-Files fame was almost too much to take in'

The former X-Files star talks to Emine Saner about her new film Sister, whether she believes in extraterrestrials – and if she'll ever get together with Mulder

In your new film, Sister, you're known as "the English Lady". How English do you feel? I feel very English until I'm in America, and then I feel very American. I was always teased at primary school – I was "the yank", even though I had British accent. I would have thought I would feel more like an imposter now, but I don't. I have been in the UK for the past 10 years, but Britain has been such a through-line throughout my life because my parents still had a flat in Haringey, north London, and we used to come back in the summer. During hiatuses from the X-Files I would come back and rent ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files Alum Frank Spotnitz Talks About His Sleek and Sexy New Spy Thriller, Hunted

Full disclosure: We’re big fans of Frank Spotnitz. After all, he spent years as a writer and executive producer on the iconic ‘90s sci-fi droolfest The X-Files and rebooted the creepier-than-creepy thriller Night Stalker for ABC. Though Night Stalker was never really given a proper shot (marketing and time-slot issues), it made for some compelling TV. So imagine our delight when we discovered that Spotnitz was back developing a kick-ass spy thriller called Hunted, starring the lovely Melissa George and airing on Cinemax (go figure!)—did we mention it’s written and set in the U.K.? Snakkle was lucky enough to speak to Spotnitz while he was in town for the Television Critics Association press tour and asked him about working in the U.K. TV system, the genesis of Hunted, casting Melissa George (Alias baddie!), and, of course, his thoughts on a third X-Files movie.

Snakkle: Tell me about the genesis for Hunted and how quickly after the second X-Files movie (released in 2008) did you have this idea bumping around in your brain? Frank Spotnitz: I was invited to the U.K. to speak in 2009, and that’s when I thought about going over there to do a show. And I called Kudos [Film and Television], and I called Stephen Garrett and Jane Featherstone, because they’d been talking to me for seven years at that point about coming to London to do a show. I always wanted to go to London. I could see how the business was changing, and I thought ther ... [Continua a leggere]

Hunted on HBO is real international espionage

To find the last time there was a successful, truly international TV espionage drama, you’d have to go all the way back to I Spy. There was a failed attempt last year, with the Ashley Judd spy series Missing, but that did not survive its first season. And now there is Hunted, a globe-spanning espionage thriller based in London and actually shot in the cities in which it is set. It debuts on HBO Canada Friday night. “We wanted it to be cinematic and that meant really going to the locations,” says series creator Frank Spotnitz, former producer on The X-Files. “Really ...

Svilupperà The After, una nuova serie thriller sulla stessa scia del cult sugli U.F.O.
