David Duchovny Talks About ‘Goats’ and Another ‘X-File’ Movie

David Duchovny will always be the cerebral and tenacious Mulder to all his die-hard X-File fans.  He is now doing press for his new indie feature Goats.  In the comedy, Duchovny plays Goat Man, a goat herding stoner who lives with Ellis (Graham Phillips) and his hippy mother played by Vera Farmiga.  The Goat Man is the only father figure Ellis has known and he teaches the teen about the meaning of life and expanding one’s mind.

In a recent interview with Collider.Com, Duchovny reveals how criminal it is that another X-File movie is not in the works and how Fox has a built-in franchise they own but are not utilizing.  He also touches upon where the second X-File movie went wrong.

That book doesn’t close until somebody dies, really.  One of the greatnesses of the show was its open-endedness.  It was about possibility.  It wasn’t about closure.  It just couldn’t be.  There is no such thing as that story ever ending.  Those characters are forever searching.  That’s what they do.  Even if we’re not watching them, they’re out there, in some dimension.  Mulder and Scully are still doing their thing ‘cause that’s their nature.

I would love to do another film, or more.  I think we’re all game for it.  I know I’m kind of perplexed that Fox isn’t more [enthusiastic].  Here’s a homegrown property that you don’t have to go buy, like fuckin’ Green Lantern or something, to make it.  Here you’ve got an actual action franchise that’s your own.  It’s weird to me, but I’m not an executive.

Unfortunately, with the last one, they didn’t spend the money to compete in a summer fashion, and they brought it out in the summer.  It should be a summer film.  It should be an action film.  But, the last one we made was not.  The last one we made was a dark, contemplative, small $25 million film.  It was basically an independent film.
