David Duchovny recently talked with TVmag (via Xfilesnews.com), and despite The X-Files: I Want to Believe tanking at the box office, the actor claims that a script for The X-Files 3 is currently being written. The sequel is coming, though the production is awaiting a green light from 20th Century Fox, who is a little hesitant about moving forward on the project due to the underperformance of the last installment.

Here is what David Duchovny had to say (as translated into English):

"It is in the process of being written. One awaits just the green light from Fox, who are a little disappointed from the relatively poor reception of the second film. (The film grossed $20.8 million.) The error comes, in my opinion, from the authors straying too far from the roots of the series. Moreover, the film was released in the summer. The third will be much closer to what the public expects, with government conspiracies, etc."

There is no official word from 20th Century Fox on this news, but we will keep you updated as more information on The X-Files 3 is revealed.
