While Bill Roe, an 84 episode veteran of the X-Files, ensures a consistant, familiar film, production designer Tony Wohlgemuth (Bionic Woman, Tru Calling, and Dark Angel) and costume designer, Lisa Tomczeszyn (X-Men), might bring an edgier, hipper look to the film's sets and costumes.

Will fans like it? Only time will tell but too much tampering with a cult fave might prove problematic. It could be that this stand alone, monster-of-the-week format is a safe way to deliver a solid, super-sized X-Files episode. In my book, that is more than enough to justify marking July 25th as a red letter day.
