Anderson leaves film for X-Files
Gillian Anderson has pulled out of a film after she discovered that it was set to clash with the new X-Files film, and so X-Files fans that means that the X-Files is definitely on.
She was set to star in a smaller film called Helen which is about a professor struggling with mental illness. The story from Digital Spy suggests that the production of the film is now in doubt because she has had to make the decision. I'm not so sure, they'll just have to find another star.
This is the closest ever to the film being made, and Gillian Anderson has pulled out of a job because this film is going to be clashing, that means filming is going to start soon. Here comes the X-Files.
Frankly though I think she should avoid it. With the story not being on the alien conspiracy theory that ran through the multiple series and the last film, this is going against what has kept the series alive so long, instead we're going to get a stand alone monster film. I'd rather see her in more films like The Last King of Scotland (Filmstalker review) and Straightheads.
