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?”

Sci-Fi UK To Show ‘Gunmen’ Pilot
The UK Sci-Fi Channel will be
broadcasting a brief overview of basically what happened in the Pilot

airing at the present time as a result of the September 11th tragedy. Perhaps at some point in the future UK
fans will get to see the Pilot Episode the way it was meant to be.

the Biogenesis trilogy.
