The unofficial/ official sequel to Alien, Prometheus, got a lot of fans talking and arguing about the film. I have heard some fans complain about the writing style of Damon Lindelof. Well those fans of the Alien franchise can relax because Lindelof is not writing the follow up to Prometheus. In a recent interview with Collider Lindelof revealed why?

“The thing about Prometheus was it was a rewrite.  Jon Spaihts wrote a script and I rewrote it.  And still it was a year of my life that I spent on Prometheus, kind of all in.  The idea of building a sequel to it—from the ground up this time—with Ridley is tremendously exciting.  But at the same time, I was like, “Well that’s probably going to be two years of my life.”  I can’t do what J.J. [Abrams] does.   I don’t have the capability.  I’m usually very single-minded creatively.  I can only be working on one thing at a time.  So I said to him, “I really don’t think I could start working on this movie until I do this other stuff.  And I don’t know when the other stuff is going to be done.”  And he was like, “Well, okay, it’s not like I asked you anyways.”  He and I are on excellent terms and it was a dream come true to work with him.  But much to the delight of all the fanboys, I don’t see myself being involved in Prometheus-er.”

So Maniacs are you ready to go back to the world of Prometheus with out Damon Lindelof?
