David Duchovny, in the course of talking up his new Showtime series Californication, also wound up discussing infestation, mutation and alien invasion - that is, the status of the always-looming second X-Files movie. "I'm supposed to see a script next week," the erstwhile Agent Mulder revealed at the TCA summer press tour. "[ X-Files creator] Chris [Carter] will direct it. Gillian [Anderson] is on board, and that's all I can tell you." The original film follow-up hit theaters some nine years ago. What say we kill two birds with one stone, merge two TV franchises, and call the movie "X and the City"?
