Disney hands 7-figure sum to Lost exec Lindelof to pen secret SF project?
by Doc on Jun.09, 2011, under Movies
Mike Fleming over at Deadline is reporting that Disney has given screenwriter and Lost executive producer Damon Lindelof a seven-figure paycheck to work on a script, about which the only things we know are that it is a large-scale SF picture, and that it has a working title of 1952, but the latter could mean anything. Lindelof is in high demand: Cowboys and Aliens is getting tons of great press and doesn’t even open for more than a month, he rescued the Ridley Scott Alien prequel plot and made it a standalone film, and he’s expected to run full bore for the Star Trek sequel before working full time on this project.
But this isn’t just a movie…they’ve used the buzzword “multiplatform”. So expect games and web tie-ins at least.
