While speaking with writer-director-producer Dean Devlin who was awarded the Dr. Donald A. Reed Award at the 37th Annual Saturn Awards (and presented to him by longtime collaborator Roland Emmerich), ASSIGNMENT X asked Devlin about the long-rumored sequel to INDEPENDENCE DAY which he co-wrote and produced with director Emmerich back in 1996 (so would that make the acronym ID4-2?)

In this case, those nubs are English – Graeme […]Read On »

In this exclusive interview with ASSIGNMENT X, Rodriguez talks about his role, as well as looking […]Read On »

There’s been rumors about a third THE X-FILES movie for some time, and while promoting his hit Showtime series CALIFORNICATION, David Duchovny spoke with ASSIGNMENT X briefly about the status of the project. “There is no deal at this point,” Duchovny told us exclusively. “It’s something I would do in a second and I know Chris [Carter] and Gillian [Anderson] would be interested.” The second X-FILES movie took time to gestate, and the lack of boxoffice heat on that one has slowed things down and Duchovny admits it’s in Fox’s court now. “It’s really just a matter of generating interest […]Read On »
