by at . Comments
The X-Files sequel has added a trio of stars to its cast.

Rapper Xzibit, Amanda Peet and Billy Connolly have signed on for director Chris Carter's big-screen adaptation of the hit series for Fox.

Sources said Xzibit and Peet will play fellow FBI agents to David Duchovny's Mulder and Gillian Anderson's Scully in X-Files 2, which is a stand-alone story, not a sequel or continuation of the hit 1998 feature adaptation.

Citing a policy of secrecy surrounding the plot line, Fox would not confirm any details regarding the three actors' roles.

Carter and Frank Spotnitz wrote the screenplay, and production is expected to begin this month in Vancouver. The film is set to hit theaters in July.
