All the "X-Files" you'll ever need is coming soon from Fox Home Entertainment in a big (61 discs big) box set with a bow tied around it and a $330 price tag, as DVD Spin Doctor reports. Gee, might this be advance promo-stoking for the upcoming "X-Files" movie that David Duchovny dropped a huge hint about during his TCA sesh on his Showtime comedy "Californication." We want to believe. We do know that Gillian Anderson is also on board for the pic. The first "X-Files" theatrical outing from 1998 is included in the box set as an extra...The plot thickens.

But David Duchovny says the project is more than just a conspiracy theory.
Series writers Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz have completed a script, Carter will direct and Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are on board to star--at least according to the man who played Mulder.
"I wasn't trying to be coy," the actor said at a TCA panel promoting his new Showtime series "Californication," after reporters pressed him for details. "Gillian is on board and I'm on board," he said adding that he planned on reading the Carter-Spotnitz script next week. He also said that the movie could come out as early as 2008.
Movie has been discussed as a potential Fox project but may have gotten caught in a lawsuit between Carter and Fox.
Duchovny had been making comments about the project pretty much since the time when people reported an unidentified craft at Roswell. But this is the first time that anyone involved has acknowledged a completed screenplay--meaning that it may finally be time to stop the conspiracy theories...and cue the conspiracy theories.
