Damon Lindelof to Write and Produce Large-Scale Sci-Fi Film for Disney

     June 9, 2011


Damon Lindelof co-created a pop culture hit with Lost and Disney is hoping that he can bring that same magic (sans the controversial ending) to the big screen.  Deadline reports that Lindelof has signed a 7-figure deal with the studio to write and produce a large-scale sci-fi film tentatively titled 1952.  And that’s all that’s known about it at this time.  Does the title refer to a date?  To a code?  To the number of possible endings he Lindelof could have used for Lost? No one knows, but Disney is conceiving of the project for multiple platforms because why just have a film when you can turn it into video games, comic books, webisodes, and beach towels?

This will be the first film Lindelof produces from the ground-up.  He’s previously worked on the screenplay for Cowboys & Aliens, he rewrote the Alien prequel into the mysterious sci-fi flick Prometheus, and he’s currently working with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci on a gigantic outline for Star Trek 2.  Once Lindelof finishes up with Trek 2, he’ll move on to 1952.
