The X-Files: Syndicate Control
This is a SPEC SCRIPT for the 3rd X-Files movie.
Mulder and Scully are back after an employee at the Pentagon commits suicide and leaves a cryptic message that acts as a catalyst for a new investigation into the whereabouts of their son, the alien colonization and a new villain who conspires to control the world.
Following the events of the series (1993-2002) and the movies (1998 & 2008) the story of Mulder and Scully continue in 2017 after a suicide at the pentagon leaves a cryptic message for the agents about their missing son. They soon discover a new date for alien colonization and a new villain raises from within the government with new threats to the world.
The film is set in 2017 and continues the story after the second movie “The X-Files: I Want to Believe” (2008).
It also ties in the story from the first movie “The X-Files: Fight The Future” in 1998 and pulls the mythology arc from the series that ran from 1993 to 2002.
This screenplay deals with colonization and conspiracy.
It ties up loose ends left by the end of the show.
It introduces new characters to the mythology including new villains that tie in with past villains including Conrad Strughold from “The X-Files: Fight The Future” (1998) film. He was the main villain who was mentioned before and appeared in that film and was never mentioned again… until now.
This Screenplay was written from 2014 to 2015, before the season 10 revival 6 episode event in 2016.
The goal was to send this to the executives at FOX. It now exists as a sort of alternate universe along side season 10.
