X Files Opens

Famous FBI double, Molder and Scully have been summoned to open another X file with the latest sci-fi 'X Files: I want to Believe' and the film is now being released at Liberty Cinema, Colombo.

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in the stars of the TV series are called back to duty by the FBI in the latest direction of Chris Carter, famed for his award winning television serial and film on the title 'X Files'.

The second feature film based on Carter's TV series The X-Files, following the 1998 film, it was first anticipated in November 2001 to follow the conclusion of the ninth season of the TV series. However the production dragged till 2007 and it was finally released on July 23 at Hollywood.

Many of those involved in the film, including Carter, Duchovny and 20th Century Fox, have spoken of its story as one that would stand apart from the alien abduction. "We're looking at the movies as stand-alones. They're not necessarily going to have to deal with the mythology," Carter described the film.
When a group of women are abducted in the wintry hills of rural Virginia, the only clues to their disappearance are the grotesque human remains that begin to turn up in snow banks along the highway. With officials desperate for any lead, a disgraced priest's questionable visions send local police on a wild goose chase and straight to a bizarre secret medical experiment that may or may not be connected to the women's disappearance.

Its a case right out of The X-Files. But the FBI closed down its investigations into the paranormal years ago. And the best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past. Still, the truth of these horrific crimes is out there somewhere...and it will take Mulder and Scully to find it.

Amanda Peet, Billy Connolly, Alvin "Xzibit" Joiner, Mitch Pileggi, Callum Keith Rennie, Adam Godley, Xantha Radley, Sarah-Jane Redmond, Nicki Aycox and Fagin Woodcock. The film was shot in Vancouver and Pemberton, in British Columbia, Canada.

According to the co-scriptwriter Spotnitz, the script was written specifically for these locations and filming began in December 2007 in Vancouver and shooting finished on March 11, 2008.

In 1992 Carter began developing projects for Twentieth Century Fox Television, creating "The X Files" (1993), which was the winner of the Golden Globe for Best Drama in 1995 and 1997, Emmy-nominated three times for Best Drama, and winner of a Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting. In 1996 he created the series "Millennium" (1996/I) and in 1999 "Harsh Realm" (1999). For his work on The X-Files, Carter has received three Golden Globe Awards (1994, 1996, 1997), a Writers Guild nomination, two Directors Guild nominations, and an Emmy Award nomination.
