Washington (ANI): The fate of a low budget movie was put in doubt after its female lead actress Gillian Anderson decided to take up the offer to star in the new X-Files film. Anderson was supposed to play the lead role in 'Helen', but pulled out just weeks before filming started as shooting conflicted with the X-Files movie. Her spokesperson insists that the decision to leave the film had been a tough one for the star, and that she wished the other members well.
"She had to make a difficult decision but the project remains close to her heart. She wishes it well," Contactmusic quoted the spokesperson, as saying. Anderson, who had previously insisted she was finished with the popular sci-fi franchise, but admitted that time had changed her mind.
"It was not something I longed for on a regular basis but as soon as we start talking about doing it again I get very excited. A lot has happened in the past few years but we are excited by each other's company and I think it will be loads of fun," she said.
