David Duchovny is "perplexed" as to why people aren't more "enthusiastic" about making another The X-Files movie.
The 52-year-old actor is famed for his award-winning role as FBI special agent Fox William Mulder in the Fox television series.
David reprised his role for two films, and doesn't understand why there isn't more interest in a third.
"I would love to do another film, or more. I think we're all game for it. I know I'm kind of perplexed that Fox isn't more [enthusiastic]. Here's a homegrown property that you don't have to go buy, like f**kin' Green Lantern or something, to make it," he told Collider.
"Here you've got an actual action franchise that's your own. It's weird to me, but I'm not an executive. I don't know if they made the Green Lantern either, but I'm just using that as an example of, 'Why make that film? Why not make a home-grown franchise that is excellent, and that has proven to be excellent and interesting?' I don't get it, but that's not my business."
The series also starred Gillian Anderson as FBI special agent Dana Katherine Scully. David hasn't closed the book on The X-Files franchise just yet though.
"Do you know something I don't know? Am I dying? No. That book doesn't close until somebody dies, really. One of the greatnesses of the show was its open-endedness. It was about possibility. It wasn't about closure. It just couldn't be. There is no such thing as that story ever ending," he said.
"Those characters are forever searching. That's what they do. Even if we're not watching them, they're out there, in some dimension. Mulder and Scully are still doing their thing 'cause that's their nature."
