The truth is still out there. We still want to believe. And maybe - just maybe - Dana Scully will reunite with Fox Mulder for another crack at The X-Files.

Gillian Anderson is certainly willing to bring back her most famous character, who teamed up with David Duchovny's Mulder for the TV show and two feature films, 1998's The X-Files: Fight the Future and 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

The X-Files creator Chris Carter has been "writing (a script for a third film) for a while," Anderson said during interviews for the shot-in-Toronto TV series Hannibal, in which she plays a psychotherapist who counsels Hannibal Lecter (Casino Royale's Mads Mikkelsen) in a three-episode story arc.

(Fun fact: the character of Scully was inspired in part by Jodie Foster's portrayal of Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal, which serves as a prequel to Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon, debuts April 4 on City and NBC.)
