X-Files Movie Has A Title To Believe In

Fox has confirmed the title of the new X-FILES movie will be THE X-FILES: I WANT TO BELIEVE, per VARIETY.

The second feature, based on Chris Carter's cult TV show reteams David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. It opens July 25.

Carter is directing from a script he wrote with Frank Spotnitz, and is still refusing to discuss much of the story. He did disclose that the plot will not focus on the show's alien mythology but instead feature a stand-alone story about the struggle between faith and science.

"I Want to Believe" appeared on a poster in Mulder's office on the show, and represented his character's faith in the strange and unexplainable cases the team worked on.

The original feature, released in 1998, grossed $189.2 million worldwide.
