Untitled X-Files Sequel no longer untitled
Posted 04.16.08 by reelz
Quantum of Solace may have a rival for the distinction of "Most Puzzling Sequel Title of 2008." X-Files series creator Chris Carter revealed to the Associated Press today that his heretofore untitled X-Files sequel will henceforth be known as X-Files: I Want to Believe. Not quite as clever or catchy as Live Free or Die Hard, but certainly easier grasp than the upcoming James Bond flick. Not surprisingly, Carter reports that Fox was rather lukewarm toward the title, which he says alludes to the flick's theme of "the difficulties in mediating faith and science."
According to AP, the phrase "I want to believe" was common to the series, even appearing on a poster in Agent Mulder's office. That's all well and good, but does it belong in the title? Discuss.
Next Showing: X-Files: I Want to Believe
