Lindelof rewrites Alien prequel

Lost writer to rework Alien prequel…

Damon Lindelof has signed a deal to help write the upcoming Alien prequel for 20th Century Fox.

The Lost writer/producer will re-write work that has already been done on the film.

Lindelof is already thought to have discussed the job with the film’s director Ridley Scott.

The prequel will be set before the time of Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley and will ask the question: “‘Who is the guy lying in a chair with his chest blown outwards?”
