Carter Pilot Goes to Amazon

X-Files creator Chris Carter has landed a pilot deal with Amazon Studios.

The new project is called The After.  According to the Hollywood Reporter, the series takes place after moment after the apocalypse.

Carter will write and direct the pilot episode.

Amazon has several more pilots in development and hopes to launch their first hour-long drama. They have also picked up Betas, Alpha House and three kids shows from last year’s set of pilots.

Carter also revealed that should the series get a pick-up, he’d still find time to make a third X-Files movie.  Citing recent reports that co-stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are willing to reprise their roles as agents Scully and Mulder, Carter says he believes the time is right to get the band back together.

And Carter says that the film could feature actor Simon Pegg as well.   Carter says that Pegg told Anderson that he’s a huge fan of The X-Files and that Pegg was almost cast in the last big-screen installment.

“We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way,” Carter says.

    Well this series could be good.
    The only other series I was looking forward to from Amazon was Zombieland. But too many people disliked the cast change (I suppose I can’t argue considering who they chose for Tallahassee). Still, I rather liked it, and will miss it.

    Heck, I remember reading somewhere that someone thought that the “other people constantly dying” thing was going to happen throughout the entire series. Anyone with half a mind could see that was just for the pilot episode. There were just too many haters for that series, and it was also quite possibly the most popular show they had.
