Gillian Anderson sightings are about as rare as UFOs these days. The “X-Files” star has been churning out boring, unwatchable fare after boring, unwatchable fare. Even her last “X-Files” movie blew little green dicks.
But, now, Anderson is back in a sci-fi project people may see: I’ll Follow You Down. The Richie Mehta-directed thriller follows a young man named Erol and his grandfather as they make a shocking discovery about the mysterious disappearance of Erol’s scientist father.
Anderson will play Erol’s mother Marika. She joins a cast that includes Haley Joel Osment (Sixth Sense) as Erol, Rufus Sewell (Dark City) as his father Gabriel and Victor Garber (”Alias”) as his grandfather.
