X-Files 3?

I’m one of those guys that really didn’t mind the first X-Files movie and was pretty excited about a second one. However… like many of you I thought the second one was total garbage. Almost as bad as the series finale. Such a wasted opportunity.

Anyway, there is word going around that despite the critical and box office failure of the second X-Files film, a third installment could be on the way. As a matter of fact, franchise star Gillian Anderson says that’s exactly what’s happening. From our friends over at Screen Rant:

Gillian Anderson at a Sarajevo film festival that basically allude to the fact that she would be willing to return for a third X-Files movie and (that in fact) there is one currently in the planning stages, with 2012 mentioned as a possible production or release date (details are unclear).

Ok… I have two thoughts on this:

1) Dear heavens NOOOOOO!!!! You’ve already ruined the franchise. Leave me alone with whatever pleasant memories I have of the show and the first movie left. You’ve lost it… let it go.

But the second thought I have is…

2) YES! Please use this opportunity to expunge the bad taste of the last movie and the last couple of seasons of the show. Redeem the X-Files name! Get back to what made the show so good and give us what we want! Do it! Dooo it!!!!!!!!

I’m not sure which side of my brain is winning on this one. Do you find yourself siding more with my thought #1 or thought #2?
