Well, everything else is getting rebooted, remade, and sequelfied; why not The X-Files?
Following the success of Fox’s 24 limited series, the network is looking to bring back another iconic drama series, The X-Files. Fox TV Group chairman Gary Newman today confirmed chatter that the network is in talks for a new installment of Chris Carter’s cult supernatural drama, which starred David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson.

Two years after it was revealed that Seth Grahame-Smith and producing partner David Katzenberg were developing a remake to Joe Dante’s classic Gremlins, it sounds as if the project is officially dead.

The beloved Critters films will be the inspiration behind a new digital series!
Blue Ribbon Content – Warner Bros.’ new digital production division- revisits the world of the legendary New Line Cinema cult classic movie franchise, as a new batch of alien pests descends upon the planet. I still have nightmares about those little bastards coming out of the toilet.
This new digital series written by Michael Jelenic & Aaron Horvath (“Teen Titans Go!”)
Jose Larraz’s 1974 UK/Spanish sex and death shocker Vampyres is one of the greatest Euro-erotic horror films of all time and the idea of remaking such a gritty, sensual gem is unthinkable. But Spanish director Victor Matellano (WAX) not only thought about it, he did it. After a year in production, Matellano’s Vampyres is done and FANGORIA has the first look at its ultra-hot and super bloody trailer!
Like the original, the film finds a pair of bisexual, sadistic female vampires shacked up in a Gothic manor, where they lure men and women with promises of debauchery that always ends in orgasmic death. Continue reading
At this past weekend’s New York Comic-Con, Fangoria caught up with film, TV and comics scribe Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who promised that the Town That Dreaded Sundown remake he penned and that hits theaters this week has not toned things down.
