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.
Don’t Give Up.
The XFN Team
Take the jump for the lyrics.
As you may have heard here at XFN and on many different media outlets, the BBC decided not to renew Hunted, Frank Spotnitz new series. However, this doesn't mean that the road is over for Sam Hunter, the main character of the series, portrayed by Melissa George.
This is because, as confirmed by Spotnitz himself and Cinemax, a new spinoff is in the works.
According to his interview with our friends at Den Of Geek, Spotnitz and HBO will be able to continue with the mithology created for the show, but they won't be able to develop it as an exact continuation of the previous production between the BBC and Cinemax.
Regardless of what the future brings for this amazing spy drama story, Frank is delighted to be able to continue the road for these characters, now with the advantages of producing for a more defined audience.
In an exclusive short conversation with XFN, he went on to say:
"I'd like to give a special shout out to all the X-Philes who've voiced their support for Hunted. Thank you all so much for always being there. I'm incredibly excited about continuing Sam's story with Cinemax, and I can't wait for you to see what comes next."
We invite you to read the whole interview at Den Of Geek, but we warn you, it does include SPOILERS from the last episode. So proceed with caution. It also includes the previously released questions about XF3 and the possibilities of an X-Files reincarnation.
If you're watching Hunted on the BBC, the final episode of this incarnation will air on November 26th, but the show still has a few episodes to go in its airing at Cinemax.
Today is 11/17. Don't recognize the numbers? Well add it to 10/13 and 11/21 because today is Frank Spotnitz' birthday!
