New X-Files trailer released > Entertainment > New X-Files trailer released
Ten years since the worldwide sensation of X-Files: The Movie, Mulder and Scully are back to get freaky in X-Files: I want to believe.

The film, directed by X-Files creator Chris Carter, takes place in the present time, six years after the end of the TV series.

Hampering the films production was a difficult lawsuit between Carter and 20th Century Fox, but Carter says this has now been resolved.

"It’s six years down the road, so we’re true to the passage of time, so Mulder and Scully would have lived six years since the show was over. It is from the original idea [we had years ago] – it’s the story we wanted to do.

"We went to the lengths of working out this board, and there was this lawsuit that got in the way. Years went by, then one day I got a call from lawyer who said “the lawsuit has been resolved,” I said “great,” and the other phone was ringing and Fox was like “let’s make a movie.” So I said, “get those cards back.” he said.

Along with cast regulars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the second X-Files installment features legendary Scottish comedian Billy Connolly and rapper Xzibit.

Conscious of their dedicated fan base, but also aware of the need to make a stand alone movie, the creators feel they have arrived at a happy medium.

"We wanted the movie to work for non-fans as well as fans, but we wanted to honor all the work these guys did on the series and all the love people had for the show. So while this is not a mythology movie, this will be true to the show." Executive producer/writer Frank Spotnitz said.

X-Files: I want to believe hits American theatres July 25.

9 June 2008
David Duchovny and his wife Tea Leoni are moving to New York.

The ‘X Files’ star and the actress have put their house in Malibu, California, on the market and are said to be looking to move to Manhattan before their children - nine-year-old Madelaine and six-year-old Kyd – return to school later this year.

The couple reportedly believe there are better schools in New York than in Malibu.

David and Tea’s 6,578 sq ft Malibu property – which has an asking price of $12 million - features ocean-views, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a gym, two swimming pools and a three-car garage.

The new owner will also receive membership in the La Costa Beach Club.

David and Tea aren’t the only celebrities who have recently decided to relocate to New York.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are planning to move there with their two-year-old daughter Suri while Katie stars in a Broadway production of Arthur Miller’s ‘All My Sons’.
