The X-Files Re-Opens

David Duchovny, aka Mulder, and Gillian Anderson, aka Scully, were both looking hot and cool at WonderCon, the comic convention in San Francisco, yesterday. They reunited to talk about the highly-anticipated, better-late-than-never, X-Files film. Although maybe it was a little TMI, since Gillian Anderson admitted to wishing they would get an “auto-erotic asphyxiation” plot line — like attending a sci-fi convention wasn’t fetishy enough. In addition to the usual suspects, the film, set to be released in July, will also feature rapper Xzibit and actress Amanda Peet. While they didn’t reveal much about the script, writer Chris Carter promises, “It will scare the pants off you. And you’ll get to see Mulder and Scully in a whole new way.” Well, after Duchovny’s hit sexy series Californication, Showtime has already beaten the X-Files movie to the naked punch (no pun intended). But there’s at least one mystery left to solve: David Duchovny, why won’t you love me? [Geek Sugar]
