The Associated Press reports that on Oct. 12, 2013, Duchovny and Anderson were on a panel discussion titled "The Truth Is Here: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on The X-Files" at the Paley Center for Media in New York City.
When asked if they were interested in doing a third "X-Files" movie, Duchvony replied, "All the principals are on board ... Gillian and I want to do it, so it's really up to Twentieth Century Fox at this point."
Anderson said, "If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that then I guess that's what it would be."
Duchovny and Anderson played FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully on "The X-Files" sci-fi TV series was on the air from 1993 to 2002. Fox televised the show in the United States. "The X-Files" TV show spawned two feature films so far: 1998's "The X-Files" (which grossed $189 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo) and 2008's "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," which grossed $68 million worldwide. Carter was a writer and producer of both movies. Carter directed "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," while Ron Bowman directed the first "X-Files" movie.
In "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," Mulder and Scully were romantically involved with each other, but it was not made clear in the movie if the couple was married.
At the Paley Center for Media Q&A, Duchovny shared his thoughts about Mulder and Scully's marital status: "Well, they were married in the last movie."
Anderson didn't sound as sure. "Were we actually married?" she asked.
Duvochny said, "I believe so. That was my impression."
