Chris Carter torna in tv con Unique (e forse al cinema con un terzo capitolo di X Files)

Chris Carter torna in tv: l’autore di X Files è da anni corteggiato dai network broadcast e via cavo e da Hollywood, ma si è preso alcuni anni sabbatici (film di X Files esclusi) finché nei giorni scorsi non è riemerso con Unique, un thriller poliziesco tutto al femminile e con elementi sovrannaturali e molta azione che non ha ancora un network televisivo e in cui non è chiaro quanto Carter sia poi coinvolto visto che pare X Files potrebbe tornare al cinema con un terzo capitolo.

Chris Carter è stato produttore di vari progetti seriali – perlopiù sconosciuti in Italia e probabilmente pure negli States – finché, nel 1993, non creò X Files, serie con protagonisti David Duchovny e Gillian Anderson andata in onda per 9 anni che aiutò FOX a posizionarsi tra i grandi network, ma soprattutto che la elesse quale luogo di una tv di qualità e che amava osare. E X Files – che a distanza di vent’anni dalla sua messa in onda e a dieci dalla fine vanta ancora uno stuolo di fan adoranti, milioni di dvd venduti e un ... [Continua a leggere]

She's a shape-shifter

Gillian Anderson a Melbourne

COMEDY is far from alien to Gillian Anderson, the former X-Files star who is in Australia to promote her latest film with master funnyman Rowan Atkinson

Since leaving the cult sci-fi hit almost a decade ago, the Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor has shifted effortlessly between the stage (she was nominated for an Olivier award for her West End role in Ibsen's A Doll's House), TV (nominated for a BAFTA for Lady Dedlock in Dickens's Bleak House) and film (two X-Files films, and The Last King of Scotland). The US-born, England-raised actor lives in London with her three children and partner, Mark Griffiths. She visited Australia with co-star Rowan Atkinson this week to promote their film, James Bond spoof Johnny English Reborn. Q: Wha ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson - interview

I'm a lifelong X-Files fan. This is emotion I had to suppress, rather violently, when I was sent to interview Gillian Anderson in a private hotel room on the 24th floor of… alright, you know what? I was freaking out. When I got there I was ferried into an immaculate room, in which two easels bore enormous posters for Johnny English Reborn, the film in which Anderson plays Pegasus, a Judi Dench-type character, and English's boss. Incidentally, I have unbelievable trouble separating character from actor, and given that I get very attached to my heroes, if she'd been unpleasant, it ... [Continua a leggere]

Change agent

A far cry from the cool Dana Scully who made her famous, Gillian Anderson speaks with Michael Lallo about her new film, her transatlantic upbringing and how acting saved her.

Gillian Anderson was backstage at Wembley Stadium, waiting to address the crowd at a memorial concert for Diana, when Victoria Beckham walked past. Having noticed that Beckham's collar was up, she reached out and flattened it, thinking she was doing the fashion-conscious Posh a favour. ''And you should have seen the look she shot me,'' Anderson laughs, burying her face in her hands. ''Other than the fact I destroyed her look, I also freaked her out because I did it from behind. Now, I try not to be helpful any more, especially where fashion is concerned.'' Sitting by a top-floor w ... [Continua a leggere]

The jest files

Sunday Herald Sun

DRAMA and thrills have left Gillian Anderson with a taste for comedy. GILLIAN Anderson shot to fame as Special Agent Dana Scully over nine seasons of The X-Files. Since leaving the cult sci-fi hit nearly a decade ago, the Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor has shifted effortlessly between the stage (she was nominated for an Olivier award for her West End role in Ibsen's A Doll's House), TV (nominated for a BAFTA for Lady Dedlock in Dickens' Bleak House) and film (two X-Files films, and The Last King of Scotland). The US-born, England-raised actor lives in London with her three childre ... [Continua a leggere]

Interview: "Strike Back" Co-Executive Producer Frank Spotnitz

With the ever-changing world of American television getting more complicated and competitive, one prolific American writer/producer has up and moved across the pond and is now producing television in the United Kingdom where things are done quite a bit differently than in the States. Frank Spotnitz, best known for his work during the majority of the television run of "The X-Files" and co-writer of the two big-screen versions, saw the differences in the way the two countries produce television to be so enticing that he's been living in London since last summer with his family. First, h ... [Continua a leggere]

Interview with Gillian Anderson

While her most famous role involved chasing aliens and government conspiracies with David Duchovny on “The X-Files,” Gillian Anderson has kept busy over the years with other projects. Her latest casts her as the long-suffering wife of Captain Ahab as he obsessively tracks down the whale that maimed him in Encore’s re-imagining of “Moby Dick” in a 2-part mini series that premieres Aug 1. Anderson sat down with CableFAX’s Michael Grebb at TCA in L.A. to discuss the role, her X-Files legacy and of course how we can start a campaign to get her a guest spot on Showtime’s “Californication.”

CableFAX: First of all, what drew you to this role?   Anderson: William Hurt was already attached, and they were in discussions with Ethan Hawke. That fact alone intrigued me. I think if they had not been attached, I might not have read the script. Then there was the script itself. I had not read the novel before. I couldn’t relate it to anything, so I didn’t know if it was a good adaptation of the actual novel. But I liked the script. I liked the story. I felt like I understood the character. And I thought it might be fun to perform it.   CableFAX: It’s ... [Continua a leggere]

Goodbye Mulder, hello Ahab: Gillian Anderson talks 'Moby Dick'

After forging one of the great female action roles on TV as (need I say it?) Agent Dana Scully in the “The X-Files," Gillian Anderson could have become a heroine of the American multiplex.  But instead, she’s become a mainstay of high-end literary adaptations, a fixture of “Masterpiece Theater.”  This week, she pops up in a lavish two-part adaptation of Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick” airing tonight and tomorrow on the premium cable network Encore. Part of a starry ensemble cast that includes Ethan Hawke as Starbuck and William Hurt as th ... [Continua a leggere]

Chris Carter Discusses A Third ‘X-Files’ Movie

This weekend, a special charity event was held in Beverly Hills featuring a Q&A with ‘X-Files’ stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. Most of the discussion involved the two reminiscing over their time on the show and waxing philosophical about their lives in the decade since. The two of them don’t have as strong a memory of the show as the fans in attendance (most of their discussion required some prompting of details from the crowd). The question of a third ‘X-Files’ film was raised at one point. As expected, Anderson and Duchovny didn’t re ... [Continua a leggere]

Chris Carter Confirms The X-Files 3 is in Discussion!

Last March, Fox All Access claimed that discussions for a third X-Files film were indeed happening. While X-Philes everywhere wanted to believe, skepticism naturally took hold of some. Whether we believed FAA or not, fans were still looking for confirmation from X-Files creator Chris Carter or someone who would be in the know. As it turns out, fans finally got an answer today at a charity event held by IBG Inc. (Inspire-Believe-Give) in Beverly Hills, CA where a Q&A session was held with X-Files actress Gillian Anderson and her former co-star David Duchovny, with Chris Carter arriving l ...

A chat with Gillian Anderson

Although arguably best known for the time she’s spent playing Agent Dana Scully on “The X-Files,” Gillian Anderson has also found a home in numerous period pieces and literary adaptations over the years, from Charles Dickens’ “Bleak House” to Edith Wharton’s “The House of Mirth.” Now, she’s taking on Herman Melville, thanks to a small but pivotal part of Starz’s “Moby Dick,” where she plays Captain Ahab’s wife, Elizabeth. Bullz-Eye talked to Anderson during the summer 2011 TCA Press Tour and got a bit of insight into her character (who – we have been led to understand – has never before appeared in a film or TV adaptation of the novel), but we also checked in on the status of the next “X-Files” film as well as what we can expect from her in the upcoming “Johnny English Reborn.”

Bullz-Eye: How familiar were you with the original Moby Dick novel before you took this gig? Gillian Anderson: I wasn’t. I started reading it once I agreed to do the job…and got about ¾ of the way through. And at some point in my life, I’d like to finish it, but it, uh, hasn’t been at the top of my books-to-read-list. (Laughs) BE: During the panel, you said you’ve got about five minutes of screen time in the production. Seriously? GA: (Laughs) No, I’m in it a bit more than that. BE: Out of curiosity, were you aware that Melville’s wife& ... [Continua a leggere]

Falling Skies – Alieni invasori in tv (parte 1)

Continuiamo a prepararci per l’arrivo degli alieni invasori di Falling Skies ricordando insieme i loro predecessori…

Così, dopo aver visto brevemente alcune delle caratteristiche principali dei film di fantascienza e aver ricordato insieme alcune delle pellicole e delle serie più significative, ci siamo. Arriviamo finalmente alla categoria “alieni invasori”. La categoria di Falling Skies. La storia delle invasioni aliene sul piccolo schermo è più lunga e nutrita di quanto si pensi: sono moltissimi i titoli che, in un modo o nell’altro, parlano di extraterrestri che arrivano ad invadere il pianeta (magari sotto mentite spoglie di “amicizia intergalattica&rdq ...
