The movies haven't been very kind to 'LOST' co-creator and show-runner Damon Lindelof lately, what with 'Prometheus' opening to universally "meh" results, and the big-screen adaptation of 'World War Z' undergoing extensive re-shoots. What better way to welcome Lindelof back to TV with open arms, then with a brand-new high-concept HBO series?
A couple of days ago it was reported that Paramount Pictures' 'World War Z' was not only pushed back from its scheduled release but will go through seven weeks worth of reshoots. That's already not good for the post apocalyptic movie that's been already pushed back once. So who's helping out with saving the flawed script?
With 'Prometheus' less than a week away from its domestic release, screenwriter Damon Lindelof has announced that he's taking a break from movies to go back the world that birthed his career in the first place: television. Why is this such a big deal? Easy: Lindelof was one of the head writers and showrunners on a little show you might have watched called 'Lost.'
It's been about two years since the end of ABC's mega-hit pseudo sci-fi series 'LOST,' though we obviously haven't stopped talking about it. Even the most hardcore loyalists found themselves divided by the show's controversial ending, which to say the least, didn't exactly wrap up all of the lingering mystery threads in a nice little package. So what exactly does co-creator / executive producer (and 'Prometheus' writer) Damon Lindelof have to say for himself?
When ' The Killing' ended its freshman season hot-streak on an unfulfilled conclusion with more twists than answers, even loyal viewers of the Danish-imported series cried foul. So with ' The Killing' set to premiere its second season on April 1, an unlikely source has come to the defense of the controversial "Orpheus Descending."
