Damon Lindelof

Sci-fi is coming to a peak these next few weeks, with Super 8 hitting this weekend, Green Lantern next and Transformers soon after. Deadline is reporting on Disney signing a deal for an original large-scale science fiction feature film. The deal is with Damon Lindelof, showrunner/writer/producer on "Lost" who hit the feature world writing Cowboys & Aliens with Kurtzman & Orci, as well as Ridley Scott's Prometheus, which is shooting now. The project has a working title of 1952, but that may just be a coverup as Deadline couldn't get any story details. But Lindelof will be producing from the ground up, as well as writing the screenplay.

Apparently this seven-figure sale for the project came out of a series of meetings Lindelof had with Disney's production president Sean Bailey and senior exec Brigham Taylor. This sounds intriguing and I wish we knew something about it. Lindelof is obviously on a roll in Hollywood, moving up to the screenwriting and producing level and this sounds like one of his first major undertakings. I'm a sci-fi fanatic, so bring on any new projects like this, especially "large-scale science fiction feature films." Damn, I love the sound of that, especially coming from Lindelof. We'll keep you updated on anything we hear. Anyone know anything?

I don't know anything but my guess is that it's based on the supposed UFO flap that occurred over Washington D.C. in 1952.

Cburns I'm thinking that's what it is, but I'll be damned if Hollywood isn't driving this U.F.O thing into the fucking ground. Robots and Zombies will be next. One of the towns fatal flaws and they wonder why people don't go to the movies like before.
