Rob Bowman Talks On 'X-Files 2' Sequel[Wednesday, July 5th, 2006]
Director of the 1998 movie version of The X-Files, Rob Bowman has told SCI FI Wire that he wants to direct the sequel but he hasn't been asked yet.
"I would be honored to direct it," Bowman said. "The only thing is I can't ask myself to do it. That's up to [The X-Files creator] Chris [Carter] and the studio. I've always said—and I've always believed, most importantly—I can't wait to see that film. If I'm invited to participate as a director, great, and if I'm not, that would be fine, too."
No start date has been announced for The X-Files 2, which has been delayed in part by Carter's legal battles with 20th Century Fox over revenues from the old X-Files series.
