Well philes, 2012 has come and almost gone, and still no greenlight. We know what you’re feeling. Believe us, we’re feeling it too. After four years of campaigning for a third film, we are shocked and saddened that it hasn’t happened yet. The way we see it, there are two ways forward. One, we could give it up, throw in the towel, and say at least we gave it our best shot. Most people probably wouldn’t fault us for it, though we would fault ourselves. Two, we could refuse to accept defeat and be who we are. We could dust ourselves off, pick ourselves up, and forge on ahead because giving up has never been a part of our vocabulary, and after five years of XFilesNews, we’ll be damned if it becomes a part of our vocabulary now.
So there it is; how we’re feeling, what we’re thinking, and we have a proposition for you. We’ve been working on a special project over the last 3 months and we desperately need your help. Through thick and thin you’ve been with us. You’ve laughed with us. You’ve cried with us, and you’ve inspired us to be better than ourselves. We’ve been grateful to call each of you friends and a part of our worldwide family. What we’re asking of you now is for less than 5 minutes of your time with a video camera.
Please record yourself dancing, smiling, singing, doing whatever it is you want to do for our Greenlight Baby music video. We are in the final stages of finishing the music and editing and we want to have as many philes take part as possible. This very special project is going to release on December 21st. This date should have seen us all at a midnight premiere and sharing the excitement of another phile reunion. Since it’s not what came to pass, we’d like to take that day to do two things. First, we’d like to celebrate everything this fandom has become: hard work, perseverance, and teamwork, because no one gets there alone. Second, we’d like to show our support to TenThirteen Productions, Chris Carter, Frank Spotnitz, David Duchovny, and Gillian Anderson for their unwavering support of a third X-Files feature film.
Take a look at the 30 second promo for our upcoming video below and please…find 5 minutes of your time between now and December 10th to record yourself, your friends, and your family and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org We will be sharing this video with the philes, with TenThirteen, with the cast and crew of The X-Files and most importantly, with 20th Century Fox. We’re eternally grateful for your support and we plan to keep fighting the good fight.
Don’t Give Up.
