Bowman Talks ‘X Files 2’

Rob Bowman, best known for his television directorial talents in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "The X-Files," said that he would like to continue his movie directing after completing his upcoming film "Reign of Fire" and move on to something from his past ... like the next "The X-Files" movie.

“That decision is up to Chris (Carter)," Bowman said of the television show's creator. "I would certainly love to work with all of those people again, and if he elects to ask me, schedule permitting, I would absolutely love to do it. And if he chooses not to call me, that's fine also. It really has much more to do with how much I love the show.  I think I'm going to be fine in terms of movie selection, and by the time the movie happens, I would have had two more movies under my belt and hopefully established myself securely in the future world”.

Bowman said he wants to work with stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) once again.

“I think those stories are always just so super fun and cool," he said. "And as long as it still provides a directorial challenge for me, why not?”
