Hollywood Deadline have just announced that Damon Lindelof, one of the Lost writers, has been brought onto do some work on Spaiht’s prequel script:
“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. Scott Free is producing and Lindelof’s CAA reps closed his deal last night.
