How technology changed ‘The X-Files,’ on-screen and off, according to its creator

Earlier this year, "The X-Files" got its chance at a reboot, with six new episodes filmed after fans campaigned to bring the show back. The new episodes were set 14 years after the series ended — mirroring the real world since the Fox series went off the air in 2002. But a lot has changed since then. How should Agents Mulder and Scully adjust to a brave new world of smartphones, streaming video and social media? Series creator Chris Carter, who was in Washington last month as part of the Smithsonian's "The Future is Here" festival, took some time to chat ab ... [Continua a leggere]

Comic-Con fans clamor for third ‘X-Files’ film; creator Carter dodges requests

SAN DIEGO — The truth is out there: Don’t expect a third “X-Files” film. While series creator Chris Carter was suitably impressed by a boisterous and enthusiastic Comic-Con International crowd clamoring for a third big-screen venture, he remained decidedly noncommittal on the idea. “We can get to it later,” Carter said Thursday, when asked of the possibility at a panel celebrating the Fox series’ 20th anniversary.

Gillian Anderson Can't Escape Scully

One year went by. Then two, three, four. Finally, almost six years after they wrapped, Gillian Anderson found herself sitting in a room again with David Duchovny and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter. "It was quite a monumental event," Anderson says of the first time they gathered to read through the script of the long-awaited second movie, "The X-Files: I Want to Believe." "On the one hand, it felt incredibly familiar and kind of melancholy and sweet and wistful in some way. And on the other hand it felt strange and awkward and like I was an impostor somehow on this other world." It was the w ... [Continua a leggere]

More Celebs Join Writers' Picket Lines

NEW YORK -- Julianne Moore schmoozed with Nora Ephron. Robin Williams chatted up David Duchovny. Richard Belzer walked one dog and toted another in a zippered bag. Film festival? Premiere? No, it was the picket line in front of Time Warner Center on Thursday, the fourth day of a strike by TV and film writers over getting a share of new media profits. No new negotiations have been scheduled on the main sticking points between the Writers Guild of America and producers: payments from DVDs and shows offered on the Internet. "They claim there's no money in the Internet," said Williams, one of abou ... [Continua a leggere]
