Lost Writer Damon Lindelof Hired for Rewrites on Alien Prequel?
Could it be? One of the men responsible for the ever so flaccid ending of "Lost" is about to ply his trade by working on rewrites for Ridley Scott's 3D Alien prequel? Steady yourselves, fans. Steady ...
According to Deadline New York Damon Lindelof has taken his first big solo screenwriting job since concluding the ABC series, as he's apparently closed a deal to do rewrites on 20th Century Fox’s next Alien film, which the studio hopes Ridley Scott will direct as his next assignment.
"In a development as vexing as a 'Lost' plotline, studio insiders said that while Lindelof indeed met with Scott and the studio for that rewrite job, the exchange of ideas between them sparked a take that could well turn out to be a free-standing science fiction film. The studio will decide when Lindelof turns it in," Deadline adds.
Lord only knows what we're in for. Just please don't let the ending suck.
