X-Files director Chris Carter recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the his new movie, specifically the difficulty in keeping spoilers a secret in this Internet age...
Entertainment Weekly: Just today an X-Files website announced that the film was about women being abducted. This was based on the apparent leaking of the synopsis of the film's novelization. Do you have any comment on that?
Chris Carter: Let me say that there have been a number of ''leaks'' during the making of the movie. And know that we went into this very early on knowing that, like any good enterprise, we would need to manage information via propaganda or imagery. And we considered all that as we moved forward.
Entertainment Weekly: Fair enough. Is it harder to keep things under wraps now than when you made the first movie 10 years ago?
Chris Carter: It was hard [with] the first movie. We printed the script on red paper so people couldn't Xerox it. But I think, the first week of filming, a synopsis of the script â€" a very detailed one â€" was in the National Enquirer. So it was difficult then, but it's even more difficult now with all the dedicated spoiler sites.
The X-Files: I Want to Believe comes out on July 25.
