Directing X-Files

Kim Manners looks into his monitors as yet another take is completed on "Audrey Pauley," episode 13 of the ninth season of The X-Files. "Cut — Print it! Next!" he yells after doing that little karate move with his hands that everybody around the set imitates. The crew immediately picks up and begins to arrange the next setup, seemingly willing to do anything to 'Mind Their Manners.' The director comfortably steps aside for an interview as his crew happily prepares another shot. It's a virtual Kim Manners Love fest on Stage 5 at 20th Century-Fox. Actress Annabeth Gish (Agent Monica Reyes ... [Continua a leggere]

'X-files', Arriva Il Secondo Film

Chris Carter, il creatore di 'X-files', sta trattando con la Fox per realizzare un secondo film tratto dal suo celebre serial televisivo. Il primo 'X-files - the movie' era uscito nel '98.

Troppi misteri nella mia vita

Ci ha conquistate dando la caccia ad alieni e fantasmi. Ma David Duchovny confessa che è stufo di risolvere enigmi. Ora vuol farci ridere. Ci riuscirà?

È stato per anni il serissimo agente dell’Fbi Fox Mulder, specializzato nel risolvere misteri e dare la caccia a fantasmi, mostri, extraterrestri. Poi David Duchovny ha deciso di abbandonare il personaggio che l’ha fatto amare dal grande pubblico. Nell’ultima serie di X-files è apparso solo in pochi episodi, e ora tenta il genere comico con il film di Ivan Reitman Evolution. Ma anche qui, per ironia della sorte, il suo personaggio ha a che fare con degli alieni bizzarri e minacciosi, arrivati sulla Terra con un meteorite. Signor Duchovny, rieccola a combattere ...

The truth about David Duchovny

Gillian interviews David. Hmmm. Simple idea. Why hasn't it happened before? Friction? A conspiracy? USA WEEKEND sends the X-Files co-star on assignment.

David Duchovny is standing outside his trailer on the Los Angeles set of "The X-Files," waiting for his co-star, Gillian Anderson. "She's on the phone with Mike Wallace," he says with a half smile. "She's getting interview tips." He's kidding. Anderson hasn't contacted the 60 Minutes bulldog. But when she does show up for her first-ever assignment as a journalist, she's exceedingly well-prepared. She was "thrilled" when USA WEEKEND asked her to interview Duchovny and was flattered to learn he'd suggested her for the job. Sitting "Indian-style" beside Duchovny on a couch in his trailer, Anders ... [Continua a leggere]

“X-files”, passo e chiudo

Un episodio diretto dal protagonista maschile, l’apparizione di Frank Black, inquietanti ombre aliene… Sono le ultime trovate di una serie avviata alla conclusione. E gli interpreti? Si dedicheranno al cinema.

Allora, dove eravamo rimasti? L’ultimo episodio del telefilm “X-files” è andato in onda suppergiù un anno fa e appartiene alla sesta serie. Nel frattempo era anche uscita la versione cinematografica, che dilatava e rilanciava la sottotrama del serial: il rapimento alieno della sorellina di Mulder, l’ombra paterna del misterioso “Uomo che Fuma”, il doppio gioco dell’Fbi. Dal 5 marzo, tutte le domeniche, Italia 1 riprende ora a trasmettere “X-files” al ritmo di due episodi per sera. La sesta serie verrà esaurita e proseg ... [Continua a leggere]

We continue our exclusive interview with Ilt Jones, the location manager for the X-Files. The location manager is the one responsible for finding those fabulous locations you see each week on this very popular show. Ilt is also responsible for coordinating all facets of bringing a crew on location. I visited Ilt at Stage 5 on the lot at Twentieth Century Fox in L.A. The crew was dressing the stage when I arrived. Ilt and I visited in the location loft above the stage which features huge location maps on the wall of the greater Los Angeles area, a location manager’s tool o ... [Continua a leggere]

The Next Files

The Official Magazine: How is Season Seven progressing? Spotnitz: If there’s anything I’ve learned, [it's that] I really don’t see what it’s like until the end. You look back and say, “That’s what this year was really [like].” It’s kind of hard when you’re in the midst of it. X-Files Magazine: Will this be the final year for The X-Files? Spotnitz: Nobody knows. It’s David’s last year in his contract. It’s Chris’ last year in his contract. I’m told Gillian has one more year, although ... [Continua a leggere]

Unsolved Mysteries

Is this the last season for Mulder and Scully? When will they return to the big screen? Chris Carter advises fans to stay tuned.

Chris Carter has – and always has had – a grand master plan for The X-Files. He had – and unfortunately never got the chance to fully implement – a grand master plan for Harsh Realm. So what doesn’t Carter have a grand master plan for? His life. “There is no grand plan,” admits the 43-year-old writer/director/producer. What Carter does have is a dream. The man behind the paranoid conspiracies of The X-Files, the brooding mysteries of Millennium and the twisted virtual reality of Harsh Realm has a decidedly sunny vision of tomorrow. In it, ...

Harsh Decision

It was news that shocked everyone. After only three weeks, Chris Carter’s fledgling series Harsh Realm was cancelled.

The initial episodes of the high-concept sci-fi/action show adapted from Andrew Paquette and James Hudnall’s comic book of the same name had received critical praise for its ambition but low ratings. Fox executives concerned about how their fall line-up would fare against that of other networks abruptly cancelled the series, explains executive producer Frank Spotnitz. “It goes without saying, I think it was a terrible decision made by people who were panicked,” Spotnitz says. “I think if these people had been in charge when The X-Files launched, X-Files w ...

On Location With Ilt Jones of the X-Files – Part 1

X-FILES – INTERIOR – ADAMS HIGH – VIRGINIA (actual location: Rose City High School in Pasadena California): I watch closely as a high school teacher is shoved 100 feet across a school cafeteria by a six long banquet table. I keep rubbing my eyes because I don’t believe what I’m seeing. It looks so real, and I’m only about 15 feet away and can’t see any wires. The actor, not a stunt double, is hurled across this long expanse within seconds. Director Rob Lieberman is at the helm for Season Seven’s episode “Rush” which featu ... [Continua a leggere]

Conspiracy Theory

The lawsuit by X-Files star David Duchovny is a window into Rupert Murdoch’s masterly vertical integration strategy.

AS FBI AGENT MULDER ON Fox’s hit television series The X-Files, moody actor David Duchovny investigates far-fetched conspiracies and creepy aliens. Now, in a high-profile case, Duchovny is charging the parent of the show’s producer, Fox Entertainment Group, with a dark conspiracy to stiff him on the profits. Whatever the merits of Duchovny’s claim, his lawsuit is doing a great job of illuminating Rupert Murdoch’s media empire. (Fox is an 83% -owned subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp.; see story, p. 120.) As a strategist of vertical integration, M ... [Continua a leggere]

1999 The Year That Changed Movies: Burning Question

Q: In The X-Files’ season premiere (Nov. 14), Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) undergoes an elaborate and dangerous medical procedure that has all sorts of important repercussions for him, not to mention the future of the world. *So what exactly did they do to Mulder?* A: The truth, says X-Files executive producer Frank Spotnitz, is back there – two seasons back to be exact. That’s when Mulder was infected by the black oil (remember?). Although it seemed at the time that the alien virus had been cleared from his system, it was actually just lying dormant – unt ...

Kiss and Tell

Sorry, `X-Files’ fans, the producer promises the latest Mulder-Scully lip-lock is just a tease

In a way, it’s too bad Sunday’s episode of Fox’s “The X-Files” is getting more attention for what happens near the end than it does for its plot. The paranormal series is giving a final send-off to its sort-of-sister “Millennium,” producer Chris Carter’s moody, dark show about visionary ex-FBI profiler Frank Black’s (Lance Henriksen) battle against a shadowy organization near the end of the century. Airing at 8 p.m. on WFLD-Ch. 32, the episode ties up loose ends from the 1996-99 series, which was canceled in May. One of those ... [Continua a leggere]

‘Harsh’ words for network boss

“X-FILES” creator Chris Carter is fuming that Fox TV chief Doug Herzog canned his new sci-fi show “Harsh Realm” after only a few episodes.

Now, the conflict has clouded the already uncertain future of the “X-Files.” “I don’t think that the man who is running the network now got the show or even watched it,” Carter told The Post yesterday. “Someone over there made the decision [to yank it]. [Herzog] was the one that delivered the message – so I blame the messenger.” “Harsh Realm,” a military-themed series set in a virtual reality world, struggled to find viewers since its debut on Oct. 8. The bad situation was the result of Fox not heavily promo ... [Continua a leggere]

Interview with Vince Gilligan

Seeing the story helps writer keep ‘The X-Files’ ‘out there’

You don’t have to believe in UFOs or government conspiracies to write for “The X-Files.” “We’re all fairly agnostic on all those subjects…,” says Vince Gilligan, co-executive producer and writer, in a recent phone interview from Los Angeles about what it’s like writing for a hot TV show. “I don’t disbelieve in any of this stuff we write about, but there’s a big difference in not disbelieving it and actively believing it.” “The X-Files” heads into its seventh and perhaps final season this Sunday, N ...
