    DAMON LINDELOF IS NO LONGER WRITING PROMETHEUS SEQUEL

    One of the most talked about movie of 2012 was Ridley Scott's Prometheus, which basically crashed upon arriving. Prometheus, for some will ultimately becomes one of the most disappointing movies of the year, considering it has Lost's writer Damon Lindelof scripting. Most of the failure, based on my review and observation, can be placed on Lindelof himself. The news today is Lindelof will no longer involved with the proposed sequel to that movie. Lindelof told Collider that he will not be back to pen the sequel, explaining the main result is because of his inability to focus on many projects at a time.


    This is what he said:

    "The thing about Prometheus was it was a rewrite. Jon Spaihts wrote a script and I rewrote it. And still it was a year of my life that I spent on Prometheus, kind of all in. The idea of building a sequel to it—from the ground up this time—with Ridley is tremendously exciting. But at the same time, I was like, “Well that’s probably going to be two years of my life.” I can’t do what J.J. [Abrams] does. I don’t have the capability. I’m usually very single-minded creatively. I can only be working on one thing at a time. So I said to him, “I really don’t think I could start working on this movie until I do this other stuff. And I don’t know when the other stuff is going to be done.”"

    For me, Lindelof is a both hit and miss guy. His great storytelling capability in Lost is, however, just doesn't fit so well in Prometheus. Not that his idea are bad, it is just that his scribing about the much hyped Alien connections are lacking and plenty of questionably stupid scenes all around it. I would not be probably disappointed by his decision though but I respect his attempts on the new spin-off franchise.

    Either way, Prometheus sequel is already on development at the 20th Century Fox but no release date is available at the moment.
