Damon Lindelof to Maybe Write an Alien Prequel


Recently unemployed Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof reportedly just closed a deal to rewrite the script for Fox's Alien prequel. Or maybe not! Deadline's Mike Fleming says Lindelof and Ridley Scott (who will presumably direct) have an idea that could become its own free-standing alien movie (Fox will decide when the screenplay is finished). We do like original ideas. On the other hand, though, if it's a prequel Lindelof won't be able to just send all the characters to heaven at the end. [Deadline]
