In true conspiracy theory style, it appears that the treatment for the next X-Files series is being held back from the public for reasons we don’t altogether know. Perhaps it’s the FBI? From Moviehole:
Frank Spotnitz, co-executive producer of the hit series, tells SCI FI Wire that a second feature film based on the television series is still in the works. “My deal has been done—and I’m not exaggerating—for a year and a half”. He adds, “There are other deals, and you can guess who the people are [who are] involved, and I don’t know why they’re taking so long. It’s very frustrating to me. I hoped the movie would be done now.” …
…These are things that happen between lawyers, and I’m not privy to it because it’s not my deal. But I know [stars] David [Duchovny] and Gillian [Anderson] want to do it. I know Chris wants to do it. I don’t know where the holdup is. But I hope it happens. I remain optimistic it will happen. If you’d asked me a year ago, I never would have believed it still wouldn’t be in the works at this point.”
So there’s still a desire to get it underway, but what’s the hold up? People asking for too much money? Perhaps people not even wanting to be in the story anymore? Strange since Duchovny has voiced his positives on it and says everyone is keen, and neither of the actors careers has taken off since. Why can’t they just get it done?
