We've heard plenty about 'LOST' veteran Damon Lindelof's upcoming HBO rapture drama, 'The Leftovers,' based on 2011's Tom Perotta book of the same name, but little in the way of casting or shooting. Now Mr. Jennifer Aniston himself, Justin Theroux, has joined in a leading role, but what's the new religious series all about?
There have been a lot of complaints about 'Star Trek Into Darkness' since the film opened, one of them from female fans who felt that having character Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) strip down to her bra and panties for no apparent reason was sexist. The complaints became too much for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' writer/producer Damon Lindelof who finally admitted the shot was "gratuitous" and "unnecessary."
Do you agree?
Whatever the "Justice League problem" means to you, Lord knows there is one. Warner Bros. was originally set on the idea of bringing this team of DC heroes to the big screen, but has since faltered and are now relying on whether the upcoming 'Man of Steel' succeeds or not to make that decision for them. Still there are many concerns from fans and execs alike about realizing this particular set of characters, but could one of the top working writers of the day, Damon Lindelof, have a solution?
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?
