The truth is...right up in here:

Series creator Chris Carter revealed today that the forthcoming (July 25) X Files movie sequel will be titled, The X Files: I Want to Believe.

The phrase is familiar to fans, having been prominently featured on a poster in Agent Mulder's office throughout the show's run. Carter claims the title "really does suggest Mulder's struggle with his faith." Still, the sequel will not focus on the ongoing UFO theme of the first film, but will be a stand-alone mystery.

The title took so long to release, says Carter, because Fox was testing its marketability - sure, it's a little awkward, but I think, pretty cool. The hush-hush on-set atmosphere Carter describes (only some crew could read the script...in a room where they were videotaped) only corroborates suspicions that the "leaked" studio photo of a wolf monster was a fake. Thank God for that; Mulder & Scully Vs. The Wolfman was not the stand-alone I had in mind...

I was a little disappointed at first that it wasn't a continuation of the "alien mythology" stuff, but I trust it will satisfy. Some of the best episodes were the stand-alones.
