Damon Lindelof, co-writer of J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel to the 2009 hit Star Trek, recently sat down for an interview with TVOvermind about the sequel and his other projects, including Ridley Scott’s Prometheus plus his reflections on his time writing LOST. Click over the jump for some brief thoughts from Lindelof on the sequel.
Lindelof told TVOvermind that he’s excited to be working with J.J. again for the Star Trek sequel, although he says he’s equally thrilled to have worked with Ridley Scott on “Prometheus” (which he wrote):
You currently have numerous projects in the works, the Star Trek sequel and Prometheus being two of the most high profile. Is there a project you’re particularly amped about? Or one that you really can’t wait for the public to see
It’s a little like asking your parents which child is their favorite. I do think that Prometheus and Trek 2 are such wildly different projects, tonally and everything else. I’m very excited to see both of them come to life. I’m living the dream. The idea that I get to work with Ridley Scott or JJ again is so great…to call those people my creative partners and have the level of involvement that I did in these creative franchises that made me want to do what I’m doing now. I used to write fan fiction when I was 13, 14 and now I’m getting paid to write fan fiction, and it’s getting made. It does not get any better, literally.
