ASHCROFT - Aliens have landed in Ashcroft this week, or at least that appears to be what film crews are preparing for.
Photos shared on social media show crews setting up a scene believed to be for the new X-Files TV miniseries which is filming in B.C. right now.
“We believe... the cast and crew will have an ‘out of this world’ experience while staying at The Wilderness Way Adventure Resort this week,” the Wilderness Way Resort in Ashcroft shared on Facebook.
According to an online database the original X-Files series also included scenes shot in the Kamloops, Cache Creek and Ashcroft areas. The Ashcroft area has been popular with film crews in the past; movies such as The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, Rain Down, Shooter and even Bird on a Wire all feature scenes shot in the area.
A Vancouver Sun photographer spotted David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson with a film crew on West Hastings Street in Vancouver earlier this week.
Back in March Fox announced it will air a six-episode run of X-Files this summer. The show premiered on Fox in September 1993 and ran for nine seasons.
