Though Gillian Anderson is best known for her role as Dana Scully on The X-Files, the actress is also a classically trained thespian who has used her talents in such varied fare as the Bleak House mini-series, the Royal-focused series Any Human Heart, and at least two television takes on classic material – Moby Dick and Great Expectations. What we’re saying is, she’s not just Scully, but damn if Anderson doesn’t know her way around some good sci-fi, so it’s heartening news that she’s joined a very intriguing new project with just that kind of bent.

Deadline Quantico reports that Anderson has joined Haley Joel Osment, Rufus Sewell, and Victor Garber in Richie Mehta‘s (Amal) new film, I’ll Follow You Down. While we don’t yet know too much about the film (and with its mysterious logline, it’s likely to stay that way), we do know that it centers on “a scientist, Gabriel (Sewell), who mysteriously disappears during a business trip, devastating his wife Marika (Anderson) and son Erol (Osment). Erol and his grandfather (Garber) years later make a shocking discovery about Gabriel’s whereabouts.” The film’s slim IMDb page adds to the mystery and intrigue – the plotline over there reports that the discovery is also “bizarre” (yow!) and “one that may bring him home” (ooooh!).

And, yes, I know that the classic (yes, classic) Gin Blossoms’ song is titled “Follow You Down” but, admit it, you thought of it, too.
