Want to learn lots about Star Trek producer (& sequel co-writer/producer) Damon Lindelof? Yesterday Damon spent 2 hour & 40 minutes on The Kevin Pollak Chat Show. Amazingly they barely touch on Star Trek, but Lindelof talks about his genesis as a writer, a lot about Lost plus Twitter feuds Cowboys & Aliens, Prometheus, collaborating with JJ Abrams and Ridley Scott, and more

Pretty interesting interview. Filled my daily quota of misguided Star Wars prequel bashing too.

From what I can tell he basically just rehashed what Ridley has already said, only with helpful life lessons.

Great work as always Darkoo.

I liked how writers all magically become something else on a movie set when the writers strike was happening. This guy was a 'producer' that I'm SURE did no rewrites, or script doctoring during his tenure on the set.  ::)

On Prometheus: This guy untangles a lot of the rhetoric that's been confusing people and really spells it out for everyone. This IS in the alien universe but without anything you'd recognize as an Alien. Dope.

bhaha sticks, if everyone keeps saying it (Star Wars prequel bashing) it must be true  :P.

I like Lindelofs take on what makes a prequel good and what he liked about the original, cant wait to see if harvest was the original script he referenced, im getting a gut feeling its part shadow 19.

Interesting.

Good to hear some confirmations. I'm glad they are trying to be original and shock the audience again rather than rehashing old trends. 10 points Sir.

I found his comments pretty encouraging. Glad he seems to feel so strongly about the movie standing on it's own in a story sense and not just repeating the same formulas again.

Also, the Larry King impersonation at the end is hilarious.

Seems about ideal to me - I want to see something new that works in universe.
Has that ever been successfully done before? i can only think of Soldier to Blade Runner, which really, really wasn't!

Nice interview. Damon seems really smart, and his ideas regarding what a prequel should be makes sense. Ultimately doing it this way will be stronger, and will allow the film to stand on it's own merits.

This. I was very impressed, he sounds like he knows what he's doing (fingers crossed).

He's cool, i'm getting excited i guess  ;D also we got a little bit confirmation it is in fact in the alien universe. i do hope we will get to see the space jockeys and maybe a xenomorph.

I'll be interested in Ridley's direction and ideas,  Noomi's acting and anything that Giger adds to the film. The rest doesn't look like my cup of tea

That was an interesting interview. Makes me question the Harvest script again considering the security.

So wmmvrrvrrmm youre interested in Ridleys direction and ideas, Noomi's acting and Gigers concepts....isn't that saying you're interested in seeing the film? Logic doesn't really add up.
