Carter and Fox Disagree Over X-Files Movie Title
Chris Carter revealed at the Paley Television Festival in Hollywood that the reason the X-Files movie doesn’t have a name yet is because he and film studio Fox can’t agree on one. “I know what I want it to be,” he said, “but Fox has ideas of their own. I know what it should be."
SCI FI Wire also reports a few minor spoilers which Carter and his writing partner Frank Spotnitz revealed at the festival (apparently the film will reference the fate of William, the baby Mulder and Scully adopted out in the show’s final season) as well as a brief description of a rough cut of the trailer for the movie which shown at the Festival. The tag line is: “Believe again”.
Tobey Maguire is to produce a film called Afterburn, based on a comicbook by Paul Ens and Scott Chittwood about scavengers searching for treasure on a future Earth which has been ravaged by solar flares, reports Variety .

Sarah Connor Looking Good for a Second Season
Detractors may have made a big song and dance after the viewing figures for The Sarah Connor Chronicles halved after its debut (which, to be fair, were only so huge because it followed on from a major sporting event), but The Hollywood Reporter is reasonably sure that rumours of its demise are premature. The magazine’s site notes that, “Fox's January-launched Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles remains the highest rated of the midseason scripted flock… and is likely to return next fall.”
