While Gillian Anderson may have been promoted to series regular on the latest season of ‘Hannibal,’ she still has ‘X-Files’ on her mind and looks to want to be a Ghostbuster! In a recent Reddit Ask me Anything Anderson took a ton of questions from fans and her answers to many were quite noteworthy!
When asked about the progress of an ‘X-Files 3’ film, Anderson was coy in her response saying “Uh….uh… uh… Sorta kinda. Keep your ears to the ground.” While that is by no means any kind of an affirmative that a third film is happening, it seems to be a lot more promising than anything else we’ve heard lately and I’ll personally take that as good news.
As for how ‘Ghostbusters’ got into the mix, Anderson seemed extremely excited about hearing that director Paul Feig‘s version is going to have an all-female lineup. In fact she jumped right into wanting a part by saying that, “OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I’m free!!!!! I’m free I’m free and I’m funny, goddamnit! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!”
I think for many genre fans this kind of casting would be an instant way to stir up additional interest in the film. Not only is Anderson a talented actress, but she has a lot of history on knowing how to act with the paranormal and seeing her with a proton pack sounds like my idea of a good time in a movie!
While no casting offer is on the table, Anderson was asked if she’d ever have any interest in being a part of a superhero/comic show as well. Mainly DC shows were listed but when asked about the genre and if she’d want to be apart of it, “Yes… I am definitely open to it.”
If you ask me, someone over at Marvel or DC had better take advantage of this one and get her on the line!
Do you think this means that there might be plans to move forward on a third ‘X-Files’ movie? Would you love to see Anderson as a Ghostbuster? Share your thoughts below!
