Having worked on The X Files for eight years where he wrote or co-wrote forty episodes, Frank Spotnitz has amassed a colossal body of high profile work, also working on the associated shows Millennium and The Lone Gunmen alongside Harsh Realm and Night Stalker. His new show is Hunted, the explosive new drama from Kudos, the production company behind Spooks, Life on Mars, Hustle and Outcastsamong many others. On Friday 24th August, as part of the Media Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival, executive producer Alison Jackson, director SJ Clarkson and Frank attended a screening of the premiere episode at the Edinburgh Filmhouse where they spoke about the international flavour of their ambitious new show, the ambiguous morality of the characters, and the extensive casting search that led them to Melissa George. Afterwards in the bar, Frank was kind enough to spend a few minutes with Geek Chocolate to talk about Hunted and his work on the FBI's most unusual cases.
After years of playing spooky Agent Fox Mulder on TV's "The X-Files" and in two big-screen "X-Files" movies, it's only natural that David Duchovny wants to lighten the mood a little bit. The 52-year-old actor won a Golden Globe for his hilarious role as troubled novelist and unrepentant ladies' man Hank Moody on Showtime's "Californication," the sixth season of which is scheduled to air in January. Now Duchovny appears on the big screen in the quirky comedy "Goats" as Goat Man — a chill, perma-stoned wild man of the desert who has inadvertently become the father figure to the son (Graham Phillips) of the hippie (Vera Farmiga) whose garden he's been tending for years.
We sat down with Duchovny as he waxed philosophical about nature vs. technology, the legalization of marijuana, the future of "The X-Files" and why getting to play guitar with Marilyn Manson was a high point of his life.

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.”
Frank Spotnitz talks about the new movie, the secretive filming and a third film as well
Leaving past controversies behind them, 'X Files' stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson unveil some new weird science
Il film si discosta nettamente dalla trama extraterrestre che aveva caratterizzato alcuni episodi televisivi, per puntare invece su una storia che ha un inizio e una fine (prerogativa che d'altronde riguardava la quasi totalitá delle puntate). Elemento positivo questo, perché aiuta a dare compattezza ad un lungometraggio che rischia di perdersi nelle proprie spirali narrative.
