The X-Files is a landmark series in the history of television. The Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny starring series brought horror and sci-fi themes into our homes every week in the 90s and 2000s. Now, according to a new interview with Chris Carter, Ryan Coogler is rumored to be working on a reboot of The X-Files.
Carter spoke to On The Coast With Gloria Macarenko about a project with Ryan Coogler.
I just spoke to a young man… Ryan Coogler… who is going to remount The X-Files with a diverse cast. So he’s got his work cut out for him, because we covered so much territory.
Well, for the wing of people out there who hate anything and everything that’s new and “diverse” this might be a shock. But for people who enjoy things, this sounds, actually pretty awesome. The last thing we’ve heard about involving The X-Files was X-Files: Albuquerque, the comedy animated series. However, it’s been quite a long time since any news came out about that project, so it’s unclear if it’s still in development or has been shelved at this moment.
Here’s the logline for The X-Files: Albuquerque:
The potential series will center an office full of misfit agents who investigate X-Files cases too wacky, ridiculous or downright dopey for Mulder and Scully to bother with. They’re essentially the X-Files’ B-team.
Ryan Coogler is the award-winning filmmaker behind films like Creed, Black Panther, Fruitvale Station, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. His filmography speaks for itself.
So, we’ll keep you updated on this story as it develops.
