Still hoping for a X-Files movie?
In a recent interview, Laurie Holden (who played Marita Covarrubias) said she can't imagine a X-Files reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Robert Patrick (who played John Doggett) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a X-Files movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a X-Files film, Nicholas Lea stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
