The world went into mass hysteria after it was announced a couple of months ago that the cult class TV show X-Files will get a revival.
As production time is approaching, scripts are being written and finally, the first one is signed, sealed and delivered to David Duchovny, the famed Hollywood actor who played the role of Fox Mulder in the show.
In a recent interview, Duchovny spoke about the revival and said that he got the first script and that it actually made him cry: “I just read it about an hour ago and I started crying reading the first page. It was just so strange to see the names on the page. It had nothing to do with the script itself. It was just like, I’d been talking about this for a long time. We’d been planning it for a long time. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place and get the deal with Fox. So let’s say two years we’ve been talking about doing it. Now it’s the fun part. Now we actually get to do it. That was nice and strangely emotional for me, and I’ll have to figure out how to use that in the performance.”
As for the script itself, the actor couldn’t reveal absolutely anything but he said that it is fantastic. Well, that’s something, we guess.
Duchovny is reuniting with his former co-star Gillian Anderson, who is reprising her role as agent Dana Scully, as well as Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and William B. Davis (Cigarette Smoking Man). The show’s original writers, Glen Morgan and James Wong, are also back to do the gig.
Fox ordered only six episodes, but there’s always the possibility and hope for a few more. At least Duchovny is up for it.
