The X-smiles: Gillian Anderson shows her lighter side

Since her breakthrough part, Gillian Anderson has played a series of dark roles, most recently in The Fall. With her latest film showing off her lighter side, she would love to act in a comedy, she tells Alison King

Cast as Special Agent Scully at 24, it is unsurprising that Gillian Anderson left for London at the end of the decade long X-Files series. In the 10 years that followed, Anderson shunned Hollywood and reinvented her career in the UK with low-key roles in film and television costume dramas such as Bleak House, The House of Mirth, The Crimson Petal and the White and Great Expectations. "Every time somebody asks me if I'm interested in doing an iconic literature character, it's really hard to ignore," Anderson explains. Establishing a roster of women as far from Scully as possible – Henrik ... [Continua a leggere]

"The After" takes place the moment after the apocalypse and hails from Georgeville TV.

The X-Files creator Chris Carter is nearing a return to the small screen. Amazon has picked up to pilot The After, a post-apocalyptic drama that Carter is attached to write and direct, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The drama takes place the moment after the apocalypse and hails from Georgeville TV. Georgeville founders Marc Rosen and Reliance's Motion Picture Capital previously worked with Carter on The After in October when the project was shopped to buyers at MIPCOM. Carter spent nearly a decade at the helm of the David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson vehicle, which ran from 19 ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson: The Fall

Gillian Anderson finds a killer new role in The Fall's Detective Stella Gibson

At this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny joined X-Files creator Chris Carter for a 20th anniversary panel discussion of the show that launched the pair as FBI agents Scully and Mulder. During the panel, one man prefaced his question to Anderson by telling her he found her “delicious” (albeit in one of her latest roles, on Hannibal); another woman fought through tears (“I’m being fucking pathetic!”) as she told the panel of the huge impact the show had on her life.   Leaning into the crowd and tal ...

The X-Files’ Chris Carter Is Developing a Mysterious New Show for AMC

Twenty years after Mulder, Scully, and Cigarette-Smoking Man entered the world, The X-Files mastermind Chris Carter remains a very busy man. During a recent conversation with Vulture to discuss the show’s anniversary — check back next week for our full Vulture Transcript — Carter surprised us with the news that he’s currently developing a series with AMC. This project is in addition to the long-gestating one-hour sci-fi drama The After, which Amazon Studios has reportedly snatched up. No stranger to divvying up his attention (remember, during the nine-season run of The ... [Continua a leggere]

Show Creator Chris Carter On A Possible Third X-Files Movie

Plus details on a potential role for Simon Pegg...

In the latest issue of Empire - the one with Loki or Thor on the front, out this Thursday, August 28 - you can read our extended interview with the creator of The X-Files, Chris Carter. To whet your appetite, here are a couple of quotes below which should excite any X-philes out there... There are a lot of X-Files references in a British show called Spaced. Have you seen it?"No, but Gillian [Anderson] worked with Simon Pegg on a movie [2008's How To Lose Friends And Alienate People] and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, b ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: "Home" (October 11, 1996)

I make no bones about the fact that “Home,” written by Glen Morgan and James Wong, and directed by Kim Manners, is one of my all-time favorite episodes of The X-Files (1993 – 2002). This fourth season installment is ultra-violent, witty, and scary-as-hell. “Home” is so disturbing and disgusting in fact that Fox TV only aired it once, and then banned the episode from prime-time television permanently. Or as Chris Carter told me during a 2009 interview: “We did an episode like "Home," and the day after we did it I was given a very stern lecture about never, ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: "Jose Chung's From Outer Space" (April 12, 1996)

As I’ve noted before, Darin Morgan’s stories for The X-Files (1993 – 2002) are something of a philosophical anomaly. Where Mulder and Scully typically voice facets of belief or skepticism, Morgan often populates his episodes with a lead character who is a surrogate for his own belief system: nihilism. That surrogate in “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space” is an opportunistic “non-fiction/science-fiction” writer, Jose Chung (Charles Nelson Reilly) who is seeking a quick buck by writing a history of an alien abduction experience. And at one point in ... [Continua a leggere]

Exclusive Interview: Creator Chris Carter Looks Back at The X-Files, Discusses Potential Third Movie and More

Even though I generally don't struggle with words, when it comes to my total adoration of anything "X-Files" related, I'm often tongue-twisted. When Chris Carter's series first debuted in September 1993, everything for me as a genre fan changed. I was lucky to have grown up exposed to episodes of shows like "Kolchak: The Night Stalker," "The Twilight Zone" and "Dark Shadows" so the very first time I laid eyes on Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and his 'I Want to Believe' poster, I knew I had found my "Dark Shadows." What continued to bring me back season after season was the series' incredible st ... [Continua a leggere]

SDCC: Chris Carter & "The X-Files" Return to San Diego with Season 10

Friday's "The X-Files" panel was a smaller affair than the previous day's event that saw a massive crowd line up for one of Comic-Con International's biggest rooms to see stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reunited on stage. But IDW Publishing Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall kicked thing with an announcement that could only be made at this panel, in a smaller venue. "And now this couldn't happen yesterday -- because there was too much media, it was too big, there was just too much going on around it, so I know there were some questions about 'X-Files 3,'" began Ryall, winding the audience ...

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: "Pusher" (February 23, 1996)

Written by Vince Gilligan and directed by Rob Bowman, “Pusher” is one of those so-called “signature episodes” of The X-Files that I discussed a little bit last week, in my review of “Syzygy.” No matter how many times you’ve seen this third season installment a re-watch immediately draws you in, and you find yourself glued to the television through the nail-biting final act. Part of the reason this episode succeeds so splendidly is because it establishes a nasty psychic assassin, Robert Patrick Modell (Robert Wisden) as a dark reflection of the Mulder ...

Resolution Signs David Duchovny

EXCLUSIVE: David Duchovny has signed with Resolution, and the agency will help the actor as he figures out the next chapter as the seventh and final season of his Showtime series Californication premieres next April. Duchovny had been repped by WME.Duchovny took that series after finishing up The X-Files and two spinoff feature films. On the feature side, he will next be seen starring opposite Hope Davis and Timothy Hutton in Louder Than Words. Duchovny continues to be repped by manager Melanie Greene at Affirmative Entertainment and attorney Peter Nelson. ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: "Syzygy" (January 26, 1996)

Although it is not widely considered a signature episode of The X-Files (1993 – 2002) like “The Host,” “Irresistible,” “Home,” “Pusher,” or “Bad Blood,” Chris Carter’s “Syzygy” is nonetheless one of my favorite installments of the two-hundred-plus strong catalog. In part that position of favor arises from the episode’s deliberate and crafty re-purposing of familiar horror tropes. In a very real way, the story is a wicked inversion of Stephen King’s Carrie (1976). Only here, the victimizers and not ... [Continua a leggere]

In occasione del Comic Con 2013 si è svolto un panel per festeggiare il 20° anniversario della serie cult X-Files.

3 Reasons Why The X Files 3 Needs To Be Made

The X Files recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary at Comic Con and fans seemed just as excited as when the show was still on the air. The last X Files incarnation, The X Files: I Want to Believe feature film, was released in 2008 to a mixed response from critics and fans. Despite the failure of the second film, fans are still pining for one more outing. In fact, demand is so high for the X Files universe that creator Chris Carter is currently overseeing the release of season 10 of The X Files in comic book form. Another X Files film is clearly should be made and here’s three re ... [Continua a leggere]
