X-Files Movie II
From Sci-Fi.Com:
'Carter Readies X-Files For Film'

The X-Files creator Chris Carter told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming series finale would provide a good measure of closure to the show's mythology arc, while setting the stage for proposed X-Files movies. "There was a lot of talk about what we needed to put into [the finale], what ground we needed to cover, [and what] answers we needed to answer," Carter said in an interview. "We realize that we can't answer every single thing, because there are too many threads to tie, but some of the bigger answers will take care of the littler questions."

Speaking of the proposed movies--the second of which will likely reach theaters in 2004--Carter said, "The movies are not going to depend on this finale, although there are important things in there. We are always going to be true to the characters, but we really see the movies as taking the best parts of the series--the Mulder [David Duchovny]-Scully [Gillian Anderson] relationship and the X-Files franchise--and doing stand-alone movies that are not dependent on the mythology [and that] are not dependent on the series. They are now their own thing: good, scary stories the way we've been telling them now for nine years, but for the big screen and with a lot of movie stuff in them." The X-Files finale, "The Truth," will air on Fox May 19.

Just catching up on some old news of the past two weeks.

Dark Places
From Yahoo News:
Former "X-Files" star David Duchovny will portray acclaimed hard-boiled crime novelist James Ellroy in the upcoming adaptation of Ellroy's memoir "My Dark Places."

"Dark Places" details Ellroy's quest to resolve the unsolved murder of his mother in 1958. The book began as a story that first appeared as an article in GQ magazine.

Adapted by Jan Oxenberg, the film will be directed by Robert Greenwald ("Steal This Movie"), who produces, with Francis Ford Coppola sharing executive producer credits.

Shooting is scheduled to start in June in Los Angeles.
ThanX Lucy.

VCR Alert
For those who want to watch it again, The X-Files Movie will air this weekend on channel 7/Prime on Saturday at 9:30pm.

Some missed TV appearances ... The "Dr Nora" episode of Frasier screened last week and featured Gillian Anderson's voice as a 'caller' named "Jenny". [ThanX Angela. Robert Patrick was in the documentary From Star Wars to Star Wars: The Story of Industrial Light & Magic last week and was also seen in Body Shot early in April. The Simpsons episode, "The Springfield Files", featuring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny (as Scully and Mulder) also aired last week. Hope you managed to catch those.

Ok, I have held my breath long enough. About 2 years ago, it was resported that channel 7 had brought the rights to the X-Files spin-off The Lone Gunmen. Every week i scean channel 7 in the guide to see if it is on yet. Nothing! Is seven trying to tell us with all the garbage now on air it can't find a spare hour to show this program?
Peter Thompson, Hawthorn.
