Hero Complex Film Festival Experience Post!

Crappy cell phone pic I took

I just got back to my hotel from this event. It was a 3-episode screening of XF to celebrate the 20th anniversary, with a discussion with Chris Carter. However, as a surprise, Darin and Glen Morgan showed up too!

I am typing from my phone so please excuse formatting, I will edit later. If the pic shows up all huge I'm sorry, I will fix it tomorrow!


* When asked about possibility of XF3, CC basically said he hasn't had interest or talked to studio about one, but actors and writers are interested (honestly sounded bleak IMO). Someone yelled out "kickstarter!" And CC said "please don't do a kickstarter"
* CC said David Duchovny begged him to move the show from Vancouver to LA for years
* Darin said his fave ep is Beyond the Sea
* CC still doesn't believe how popular the show is/was
* CC doesn't see any similarities between XF and Lost besides the fact they both had a mythology. Says about shows now being influenced by XF - XF was influenced by shows before it too, its just the nature of the business
* Glen says some criticism of the show's worst eps is harsh because some episodes had to be written in like a night due to strict schedules
* Glen says idea for Squeeze was because network didn't want all the eps to be about aliens and they were in a tiny writers room and James Wong said "what if a killer could squeeze in through that air vent" and they ran with it

Side note, CC looked me directly in the eyes (I was only 3 rows back) and I almost fainted. He's a good looking man. My husband says CC made "bedroom eyes" at me, lolol

I could've sat in the front row if I wanted... there were a good number of open seats (unfortunately). I sat a few rows back though because sitting too close gives me a headache.

It was cool to see XF on the big screen and see them in person but I kinda have mixed feelings about the experience tbh. I was bummed that the theater had a lot of empty seats and I was bummed at CC's response to the XF 3 question. I got the impression that it's not going to happen. BUT... I never thought IWTB would happen either so we'll see.
Bedroom eyes! Lmao that is fantastic.
Great picture and thank you for the report. Carter and both Morgans ftw!!

Which eps did they show?
Pilot, Jose Chung's from Outer Space and Clyde Bruckmans Final Repose :)
"Well, there are worse ways to go, but I can't think of a undignified way than auto-erotic asphyxiation." or something like that

Ummm so now CC is not interested in XF3?? I always thought it was just the studios that didn't care. :( Did he elaborate on why people shouldn't do a kickstarter?
I think he's interested but the studios don't have any interest. He wasn't like, excited about the question though... he seemed exasperated. I mean, he could've been like "yeah I want to do another movie! Write letters to Fox!" but instead he tried to dodge the question. I'm not sure why he was so against the kick starter - maybe because he thinks the prospects aren't very good so it would be a waste of money?
