The chaps behind a campaign to get a feature-film version of â€œMillenniumâ€ â€“ the â€œX-Filesâ€ spin-off starring Lance â€˜Bishopâ€™ Henriksen â€“ checked in with an update on how things are going.
â€˜â€™Lance was recently approached by several independent investors looking to finance [the movie]â€, Troy Foreman of BacktoFrankBlack.com says in an email. â€˜â€™We passed this basic information on to a couple of sites and before you know it, it went viral. Over a 150 websites in 2 days. Unfortunately what happens is the news gets twisted a bit. Our information went from Lance being approached by investors to a Millennium movie being made without Chris Carter, which is not true.â€™â€™
So would Carter do it?
In a recent interview with BacktoFrankBlack, the TV vet said “..if someone called up and said ‘would you consider doing this [a Millennium movie]?’ I would certainly consider doing it… I’ve always had an idea who’d be in that movie but I won’t tell you who that is! .. It would be about sitting down with Lance [Henriksen] figuring out how he felt.”
In response, Henriksen told the site â€œI’m ready to pack my bags and travel to wherever Chris is staying and talk Millennium. I’m more than willing to conspire with Chris’ creativity to make this happen.â€
â€œMillenniumâ€ is set during the years leading up to the year 2000. The plot line followed the investigations of an ex-FBI Special agent Frank Black, into serial murderers, which were often involved with both the supernatural and a sub-governmental authority known as the Millennium Group and their prophecies for an oncoming apocalypse. Many of the unsolved questions of the series were answered on The X-Files seventh season episode, “Millennium”.
