Duchovny said that he will be happy to reprise his role but not for a full season instead he would prefer a limited airing. The actor added that it may happen sooner and he even joked that the cast are now old so they won't have energy to shoot a full season.

I grew up in a household run by a woman of the civil rights movement. My mother, born Sharon Lawrence in 1948, was a teenager when she joined the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee in 1966, one year after Dr. King's legendary march from Selma to Montgomery and President Lyndon B. Johnson's passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. With the foundations of progress and protection laid, there was still much work to be done. My mother was based in Philadelphia, where she helped establish one of SNCC's embattled northern offices.
A few years back, as I fished through boxes brimming with old papers and notepads, I discovered handwritten notes from James Forman to my mother. Forman offered detailed instruction to the then 18-year-old young woman who would become my mother only a few years later. Her job was much like mine is now: church outreach. The way she tells it, there were only a few churches in Philadelphia willing to offer their pulpits for movement people to speak. It was her job to secure those pulpits when giants like Forman, Stokely Carmichael, and others came to town.
I grew up aware of the women of the civil rights movement — my mother was one of them. more >>

The producer revealed that the movie will have young cast members and one adult who will chase after them plus a treasure map. This is the same plot for "The Goonies" that featured a group of kids on a treasure hunt to save their house from foreclosure.
The script was written for nine months and the production will finally start this summer. The producer added that they want the Monopoly movie to be fun filled and family oriented. There is no director yet but Emmett said he is looking forward to the final choice for the position. more >>
