Sept. 11 Events Predicted In ‘The X-Files’ Spinoff?

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Conspiracy theorists will have something to talk about now that the first and only season of The X-Files spinoff, The Lone Gunmen, is out on DVD.

Chillingly, the show’s first episode, which aired March, 4, 2001, prophesied the Sept. 11 demolition of the World Trade Center by depicting a jetliner barrelling down on the skyscraper. However, in the show, the crash was prevented.

Dean Haglund – who starred as the long-haired, horn- rimmed techno nerd Langley – says it’s “unusual that it is very close to the event,” and very shocking that the real crash happened six months after the episode aired.

Haglund says part of the joy of doing the show was that the plot lines touched upon were “of a serious nature.”

The actor says he’ll keep his eye on the other episodes to see if anything else comes true, but he figures “there’s probably no battalions of super intelligent apes out there.”
