‘Lost’ Co-Creator Damon Lindelof Re-Writing Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’ Prequel

Deadline is reporting that they’ve gotten word of a new deal that will see Lost creator, writer, and producer Damon Lindelof working on a rewrite of the script for Ridley Scott‘s horror classic prequel, Alien.

This doesn’t mean that Lindelof’s polished script will be the final one used for the movie, but he did meet with Ridley and the ideas shared were impressive enough to bring about the deal. Now Lindelof will get to it, submit his script, and see where things stand from that point.

Lindelof has become a much-recognized name over the past few years due to the incredible success of Lost, but has also quickly begun trying to solidify himself as a top screenwriting talent. In addition to this Alien prequel, the writer has also been collaborating with both Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci on the scripts for J.J. Abrams’ untitled Star Trek sequel and Jon Favreau’s comic book adaptation, Cowboys & Aliens.

The prequel is also expected to be split into two parts, but it’s unclear whether Lindelof will be working on one or both parts. We also don’t know when we might expect these movies to come around. Fox wants Scott to do the movies next and they’re currently planned for 2011 and 2012, but official timelines are not yet known.
