FINALLY!! X-Files 2!!

After being teased about it for years ever since The X-Files movie hit theatres in 1998, people have been wondering, "Dude, where's my sequel?"

The answer: next year!

Filming begins on December 10, for a release in 2008.

It'll be filming in Vancouver (naturally). X-Files creator Chris Carter will be making his feature film directorial debut, from a screenplay that he wrote with his fellow X-Files writer Frank Spotnitz.

The only ones we know for sure who are coming back are David Duchovney and Gillian Anderson as Mulder and Scully, natch. I hope they find a way to throw in Robert Patrick as Dogget...I kinda liked Dogget.

The code name for production is "Done One."

No word on the plot just yet, but for the longest time, Carter has been telling us that he wants to ditch the ol' UFO/conspiracy mythology and just do a stand-alone episode...Mulder and Scully battling some supernatural force in small town America.

Let's see...what else is going on for movie news today?

David Dobkin, who gave us the classic comedy Wedding Crashers and the upcoming Christmas movie Fred Claus, just signed on to give us the movie version of The Flash.

Dobkin tells us that his Flash movie will follow the Wally West version of the Flash, and it'll be a spin-off from the upcoming Justice League movie.

Also on the DC movie front, it was announced today that Greg Berlanti will be giving us the movie version of Green Lantern. Berlanti is a television writer and producer, who's worked on such diverse projects as Dirty Sexy Money, Brothers and Sister, Heroes, and the late-90s classic, Dawson's Creek. Belanti also gave us the 2000 indie gay romantic comedy The Broken Hearts Club.

Berlanti will be directing...Marc Gugenheim and Michael Green, who worked on such classic comics as Blade, The Amazing Spider-Man, Batman/Superman, and they have TV credits too. They wrote for Smallville.
