During Variety’s Entertainment & Technology Summit this week in California, “Lost” co-creator and “Prometheus” co-writer Damon Lindelof basically stated that he never wants to revisit the TV show that made him and JJ Abrams famous. “It’s been two years (since the series wrapped) and we told the story we wanted to tell,” Lindelof explained.
This is a real bummer for diehard “Lost” fans, especially the ones who were on the hate-side of the polarising series finale. (SPOILER ALERT! They’re all dead and waiting for each other in some strange limbo until they accept their life and death).
But Lindelof doesn’t want to discourage fans for good. He says that just because he will no longer be involved, it doesn’t mean ABC won’t try to resurrect the hit series someday.
“I do feel like the world has not seen the end of ‘Lost … It would be hypocritical for me to say I’m going to do ‘Star Trek’ but I don’t want anyone to touch ‘Lost,” Lindelof said.
He’s got a point. The man has continued to stay on top TV and film’s sci-fi and fantasy genres for many years thanks to co-writing prequels and reboots in the form of “Prometheus”, 2009’s “Star Trek” and the announced “Star Trek” sequel that has an estimated release date in 2013.
What do you “Lost” fans out there think? Is it time to put the show to bed for good? Or are you willing to see Jack, Sawyer, Kate, Juliet and the gang back again for a “proper” send-off?
