New X-files film on track

Hmmm. I seem to remember a show called the X-files. It was quite a while ago. Wasn’t it about the same time Twin Peaks was on?
The title is out there for upcoming X-Files film
Sure enough, Chris Carter doesn’t know how many people out there will be familiar with the show, though he insists it’s still relevant:

“It has struck me over the last several years talking to college-age kids that a lot of them really don’t know the show or haven’t seen it,” Carter said.
“If you’re 20 years old now, the show started when you were four. It was probably too scary for you or your parents wouldn’t let you watch it. So there’s a whole new audience that might have liked the show.”

  • Though, to be clear:
    ‘”The reason we’re even making the movie is for the rabid fans, so we don’t want to insult them by having to take them back through the concept again,” Carter said.’
    The show was cancelled only six years ago. I’ll argue the show was hardly relevant (in any meaningful sense of that word) in its heyday, but the fact is that conspiracy stories are part of the fibre of the US sense of self.
    The “secret history” of the US nation-state is as much a part of the official history as anything else, now. Whether or not this particular men-in-black story resonates with anyone remains to be seen.
    Will I see the film? Not likely. I think I may have watched the few episodes I did simply to see if I could catch the female lead in a skin-tight latex outfit .
