Mia Goth and Ti West are returning to their X trilogy with the upcoming MaXXXine, and Goth says the third film has the best script of the series yet. Goth is set to reprise her role as Maxine Minx from X in the upcoming sequel after delving back into the life of X villain Pearl in the prequel of the same name. Goth spoke with Variety for a new interview at Sundance, where her latest film Infinity Pool is screening, and gave an update on the 1980s-set MaXXXine.

“It’s the best script of the three by far,” Goth told the site. “It’s going be the best movie of the three. We’re all so tight now. This is going to be our third movie we’re working on together and everyone’s coming back together, so it’s bringing the band all back together again. We just have a shorthand with each other. We know how everybody works and we’re all so excited. It’s the biggest story of the three with the highest stakes and Maxine has gone through so much at this point. So when we find her in this new world, she’s just a force to be reckoned with and she goes through some pretty wild adventures.”

Goth also confirmed that the film is filming later this year, saying, “Yeah, I’m in prep with the script, doing my homework, getting everything ready. Then you let it all go once you get to set and just hope that some magic comes from it.”

Little is known about the third film, other than that it follow Maxine (Goth) following the events of X. The teaser trailer strongly suggested the film will be set in Hollywood in the 1980s. West is back as writer and director on the film, which A24 will again release.
