Former 'LOST' showrunner Carlton Cuse has certainly found his next success in A&E's 'Psycho' prequel drama 'Bates Motel,' but will Damon Lindelof share the same success with his upcoming HBO pilot 'The Leftovers'? With the pilot soon to go before cameras, 'Friday Night Lights' helmer Peter Berg has signed on to direct and produce the rapturous new series, but will 'The Leftovers' prove to be a satisfying course?
Everything we've heard about Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' has been speculation. The George Clooney-starring, Damon Lindelof-scripted project has been under tight lock and key and with plot details scarce, everyone all over the internet has made their guess about what its about, with theories ranging from Walt Disney to UFOs. Now, it looks like the first actual plot details have emerged!
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?
