Lindelof met with director Ridley Scott about the rewrite job on Jon Spaihts's script and the meeting led to a take that could become its ow free-standing science fiction film. A decision will be made when Lindelof turns in the script.
Scott Free is producing. Lindeloff is currently writing the "Star Trek" sequel with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the trio also penned next Summer's "Cowboys and Aliens" which is currently shooting.
Lindeloff is the man and anyone who watched "Lost" knows he's a genius. Great move by Ridley Scott.
