Damon Lindelof To Rewrite ALIEN Prequel

Damon-LindelofAccording to Deadline, a late night deal has been reached for LOST writer Damon Lindelof to re-write Ridley Scott’s upcoming prequel to the sci-fi classic ALIEN. According to Deadline:

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.

For fans of the series, the choice can be seen as a good one considering the mass appeal of LOST as well as the fact that Mr. Lindelof is also writing & producing the STAR TREK sequel. He is definitely a man who knows his sci-fi. It seems as if the beloved ALIEN is indeed in good hands.
