X-Files Sequel Release Date Named

For those of you who can just feel my excitement exuding from your computer screens, the sequel to "The X-Files" movie will be released on July 25, 2008.

The film brings back the characters of Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) to the big screen. Shooting begins Dec. 10 in Vancouver according to Fox execs. A majority of the series was filmed in Canada before relocating to LA.

When we last left the FBI duo, they were on the lam after Fox's "abduction" by aliens and Scully's supposed alien-baby birth. We've already found out what happened to his sister, Samantha. So, what could be in store for the next film...?

Fox says that the film will be a stand-alone piece written and directed by the series creator, Chris Carter. It looks to be more of a horror story than delving into the depths of conspiracy in our government -- I guess we get too much of that already in real life, huh?

The sequel's predecessor was released in 1998 and grossed over $189 million. The show ended a nine-year run on Fox in 2002.
