Quentin and the X-files, was this true? does anyone know anything about it?


#1

I was looking on imdb and it said Quentin wanted to direct an X-files back during it’s first few seasons, but was unable to because of the DGA. Is this true? Does anyone have any info or quotes about it? I would have loved to see a Quentin Tarantino episode, I love the X-files.

It was to be called-‘Never Again’. It was forbidden by the Directors Guild of America. QT was to write the script, but the usual X-Files directors were to direct it.

Plot: Mulder is gone on a holiday, and Scully to Philadelphia for a case. There she meets edward Jerse, who has a tattoo (Betty Boop style) The tattoo talks to him, and is voiced by J.Foster.

Edward and Scully are attracted to each other, soon scully also gets a tatoo (dragon). And teh tattoo is actually a real one that Gillian has.

Meanwhile Mulder is taken on a spiritual journey. He visits Elvis’ grave and home at Graceland

The episode was transmitted on the 2nd February 1997.

The only quote I have, is from Scully:

’‘Your contract, while interesting in the context of science fiction, was, at least in my memory, a poorly veiled synopsis of an episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle’'



Got it from the book-Tarantino by Jim Smith

#7

#8

Haha, I spilled cola over mine. Now the Apple button, Escape and the little green light in the Caps Lock button are broken.


#9

that sucks. I try not to eat and drink behind a pc. I hate those sticky dirty keyboard buttons.


#10

Yeah, that’s a good idea. My keyboard is filled with Doritos and tabacco…


#11

haha. do you even roll your cigarettes in front your pc?


#12

Yeah, not right above the keyboard, though. Actually there’s more ashes than tabacco.


#13

aargh ashes. that’s even worse :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

Haha, tell me about it :stuck_out_tongue: Every now and then I get the keys off to clean the keyboard with an old toothbrush. That works great.
