I knew it was happening. I had read the articles. I even wandered over to Imdb.com a few times to check the production status. Then they posted set photos and I could no longer contain my excitement.
The X-Files is returning to the silver screen this summer!
Agents Mulder and Scully lead the way for a story-line that is supposed to stem from the 9th season series finale. Where are agents Doggett and Reyes? You know, those two people (who I did come to love) that stepped in when David Duchovny had had enough of the series in 2000. They aren’t in the movie, but I don’t care. My favorite paranormal tag team are back in action. I want to see Mulder fight for the “truth is out there” notion while Scully looks on, mouth slightly agape, muttering something about scientific plausibility. The X-Files was a huge part of my high school and college days. I’ve missed it, and I couldn’t be happier.
So blog readers, remember…
