David Duchovny was at the TV Critic’s Press tour in Beverly Hills this weekend, promoting his new Showtime series, Californication, in which he plays a sex addict writer and gets to be as close to movies, sex- and language-wise as television allows. But when you get right down to it, Duchovny had real movie aspirations and except for The X-Files movie back in 1998, he’s still playing second fiddle to his wife TÃ©a Leoni, and is back on the channel where he first made it big as the narrator of Red Shoe Diaries– as a second tier Mike Binder (and he doesn’t even write the series).
So it’s small surprise he used the Showtime platform to announce that a new X-Files movie is in the works.
As if the last ten years never happened.Duchovny stole Showtime’s Californicaton thunder by announcing that X-Files creators Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz have finally finished a script for the 1998 Fox feature based on the hit series from a past decade.
Duchovny said Carter will direct and he’ll again star with Gillian Anderson.
(FUN FACT: TÃ©a Leoni was born Elizabeth TÃ©a Pantaleoni.)
