The creator of X-Files Chris Carter wants to bring Simon Pegg on for a third movie. Ultimately the decision to bring him on board is up to 20th Century Fox but it is evident that the idea to get everyone back for a third movie is welcomed by all of the team. In an interview with Empire Carter said:
“The colonization date (which was December 22 2012 in the series) has passed, 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.”
“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.”
In being a huge fan of Pegg I am definitely on board for him to be apart of a new X-Files movie. He would be a much needed team member that would lighten the mood a little between the intense duo Mulder and Scully. In addition Pegg has had his fair share of dealing with the abnormal and alien with his recent films Shaun of the Dead, Paul, and The World’s End. It seems like the genre is actually his specialty.
