MM mention in Dark Horizon

Recommended Posts

I found this today:

That most legendary of cult shows which crossed into mainstream hit territory before living long past its expiration date has always talked about getting another shot at the big screen. Now, over five years since their first film outing, that future is looking dim.

Entertainment Rewired recently wrote up a column on the film's potential and placed a few calls to key players who would be involved to find out what's going on - the results were not good:

"I put in a call to 1013 Productions, Chris Carter's production company, on Friday. Turns out, Chris Carter and 1013 have moved out of the FOX lot permanently, meaning that they are no longer working together. Does this mean that FOX and Carter have fulfilled their creative contract with one another, made back in 1999? Apparently.

Millennium, The Lone Gunmen and that other sci-fi virtual reality show which shall not be named here were all cancelled. And X-Files' ratings dropped significantly during its last season due to the absence of David Duchovny. The final episode, however, drew in about 13 million viewers. Back during X-Files' heyday, that would have been a disappointment, but considering just how many fans left after season eight, it's a surprise it broke the top 30 in the Nielsen ratings.

Nevertheless, I put in a call to Chris Carter's agent's office, and they were not currently aware of any activity with the project. However, I was assured that I would get back to after they would pursue a stronger answer, hopefully from Mr. Carter himself. Mr. Carter, if you're there, hash out a script already or at least tell us what's going on with it!".

I don't know what CC's split with FOX would do to getting MM on DVD, but there's always hope.

I wouldn't worry about that too much. X-philes have known for awhile that 1013 has no studios on the Fox lot. Yet CC is still working on the season 9 X-files set. He doesn't have a lot on the fox set because he doesn't have a show in production. This doesn't rule out the possibility of a 2nd movie or does it rule out MM being released on dvd. Actually DD has an interview with IGN talking about the video game coming out and mentions the second movie.

Ahh I feel like in Dogma when Bartleby lists off all the things that the Mooby empire has spawned, and the guy's like "You forgot Mooby Magazine."

They forgot Harsh Realm.

I'd also like to hear if they decided to make the contract between Chris and Fox for another show defunct.  Or maybe he made a pilot and they refused it, but considered that to fulfill the contract.

I won't be disappointed if there's not a MM movie.  It's been so long since the show was on that I don't expect anything more from it anymore.  Except maybe to be put back on the freakin' air!  But I'd be tremendously disappointed if this meant the end of 1013 Productions.  I've always liked all of their work, and hope to see them making *something* more soon.

Um, Laura? They 'mentioned' Harsh Realm by not explicitly mentioning it...



this is who we are

we can't just sit back and hope for a happy ending

i couldn't swear it wasn't just an incredibly realistic simulation. not just the scenery, my whole life.

I just want to see Millennium released on DVD.   I think 1013should go the way of  making movies instead of new tV shows since nothing since XF and Millennium really did any good ratings.  As for a second XF movie, I would be glad if they said the series finale was a dream unless Chris Carter could actually come up with something good to continue the storylines in the show (and I don't mean that super soldier crap).   I want something that isn't a stanalone monster movie story for XF, but something that was accessible as the first X-Files movie while continuing the plotlines from the show and the movie.

Be Seeing You,
