X-Files 2 Still Kinda Happening

Technically, "X-Files 2" remains in development. Technically.

The latest chapter in this sequel saga comes from SCI FI Wire, which recently spoke with former "X-Files" co-producer Frank Spotnitz at the Television Critics Association press event. Spotnitz is like the rest of us; he's just waiting for "X-Files 2" to come together.

"My deal has been done -- and I'm not exaggerating -- for a year and a half," Spotnitz tells SCI FI.

So what's the hold up? Spotnitz doesn't know. Now, take a moment to let that sink in ... The man who ran the "X-Files" doesn't know why the movie hasn't been made. "If you'd asked me a year ago, I never would have believed it still wouldn't be in the works at this point," Spotnitz says.

Fortunately, Spotnitz has a little project to keep him busy: He's executive producing ABC's "Night Stalker," an update of the 70's TV show -- a show that had a huge influence on "The X-Files." Hmm ... Why do I get the feeling we're going to see a "Night Stalker" feature before "X-Files 2"?

We'll be keeping up with the latest "X-Files 2" non-news our "X-Files" spotlight page. -- Mac Slocum
