X-Files Movie Given Green Light

DAVID DUCHOVNY and GILLIAN ANDERSON have both signed on to star in the second X-FILES feature film. The movie will pick up four years after the 2002 finale that left agents MULDER and SCULLY on the run from the FBI. Executive producer FRANK SPOTNITZ claims the script is nearly finished, saying, "We've worked out most of the plot." He claims the sequel will be light on mythology, adding, "It's very liberating to be freed of that." The film will begin shooting after X-Files creator CHRIS CARTER and 20th Century Fox settle a lawsuit over syndication profits.

Frank Spotnitz can't greenlight anything. Only 20th Century Fox can and they haven't.Your headline is in error.
