Chris Carter On "X-Files 3", Amazon Orders "The After"

"The X-Files" series creator Chris Carter has once again spoken about a third "The X-Files" movie, telling Empire recently that it's all up to 20th Century Fox. If it were to go ahead though, it would go back to the mythology arc of the series:

"I think all of us are interested in putting the band back together. I have an idea for a third movie in my head. The colonization date has passed [in the series, the date for the alien invasion was December 22, 2012 - Ed.] and that is something we wouldn't ignore. For the second movie, we only had the budget for a standalone story, but we want to go back to the mythology."

Martin Landau and Billy Connolly were the two big 'guest stars' as such for the previous films. If a third one were to happen, Carter already has an idea about who that would be in the third one:

"Gillian (Anderson) worked with Simon Pegg on a movie [2008's How to Lose Friends and Alienate People] and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way."

Meanwhile, Carter is coming back to television as Amazon Studios has reportedly moved forward with a pilot order for his new show "The After". Carter wrote and is set to direct the apocalyptic thriller, though details are scarce for now.
