Speaking to TV Guide about The X Files: I Want To Believe, Spotnitz revealed: "The emotional story of Mulder and Scully is really the heart of the movie… it’s about their love story."
David Duchovny, who reprises his role as Fox Mulder, added that "there’s definitely some skin in this movie and not all of it is being flayed or ripped apart. There’s some Gillian [Anderson] skin, and some of mine".
The X-Files: I Want To Believe will be released in the UK on August 1.
