Is a 'Lost' Reboot Coming Soon?

Is a 'Lost' Reboot Coming Soon?
Lost's iconic catchphrase 'We have to go back!' might take on a whole new meaning, as creator Damon Lindelof teases a return for the infamous ABC drama that ended its run in February of 2010 with a two-and-a-half hour finale.

But there is a catch. If Lost takes on a new life, it won't come from the original team behind the series. While Damon Lindelof believes the franchise will live on in some way, perhaps as a reboot, it will be from a fresh mindset of people looking to do something new with the title.

"I think there will be more Lost. But I don't think it's gonna come from us. My guess is that some other creative team will come in and take their creative spin on this content, which is really exciting."

Damon Lindelof himself claims that he is done with the whole Lost universe, a sentiment which co-creator J.J. Abrams shares.

Michael Emerson Talks ‘Lost’ Leak & TV Series with Terry O’Quinn

If you’re a fan of Lost you’ve probably put-in your order for the Complete Collection on Blu-ray and, if you’re like me, are hopeful for at least one deleted scene featuring a bit of Ben Linus/John Locke banter.

However, should the Lost special features fail to deliver in this particular area of interest, it sounds as if the actors themselves (Michael Emerson & Terry O’Quinn) might have something up their sleeves. The Emmy-award-winning actors are shopping around a new TV project, and while it’s not an extension of the Lost universe, it would see the twosome partnered on screen.

According to the Associated Press, Emerson has confirmed that he and O’Quinn are pitching a “somewhat more lighthearted” show that “acknowledges the age and frailty of the actors involved” -…

Dominic Dierkes, Donald Glover, and DC Pierson Interview Mystery Team

Mystery Team was one of the best comedies I saw last year. Unfortunately, it didn’t get the wide release (or even much of a limited release) that I was hoping for so a lot of people who wanted to see it in theaters weren’t able to. That changes today as the film has now been released on DVD, digital download, On Demand, and video game consoles. You’re going to want to see this movie as soon as possible so you can say you got in on the ground floor of what I think will be a big cult comedy.

Last week, I got to do a conference call with stars Dominic Dierkes, Donald Glover, and DC Pierson. The three not only star in the film but they co-wrote it with their fellow Derrick comedy members Dan Eckman (who also directed the film) and Meggie McFadden (who also

Lost: Everybody Loves Dynamite

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 If "Everybody Loves Hugo" has taught us anything, it's that death is as much of a constant in the Lost universe as Penelope Widmore herself.  But unfortunately for us, death calls just a tad more often than once every 8 years.  Poor Ilana.  I shall watch Kevin McKidd nail Zuleikha Robinson in Rome on repeat for hours in your honor.

What.  That's not weird. 

The series finale is well on its way, and we have to be on our toes.  And like any good TV finale, the stakes are high, main characters will drop like flies and Damon Lindelof will throw more explosions at us than an Old Spice Commercial.

Incredibly specific typecasting in movies and TV

Mark takes a look at some of the more specific examples of typecasting happening in the world of TV and film today...

We all know of actors who are typecast, stuck replaying what is essentially the same role over and over. The set and plot may change, but the shtick remains the same. Jason Statham is a gruff tough guy without a sense of humour. Jim Carrey is an unhinged wacky person with a penchant for pulling funny faces. Michael Cera is an awkward teenager and Tom Cruise is, well, Tom Cruise.

But some actors have refined the art of typecasting to the point where the characteristics on display are incredibly specific. It's quite the niche they've dug out for themselves. First up on the list we have...

Tahmoh Penikett

Anyone with an appreciation of compelling sci-fi will know Penikett from Battlestar Galactica. He played Lieutenant Carl ‘Helo' Agathon in

This Just In: How Did Lost's Darlton Come to Be? Blame It on Tom Cruise!

This Just In: How Did Lost's Darlton Come to Be? Blame It on Tom Cruise!
Lost: Ever sit around wondering how the power pairing of Lost's Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, arguably the most recognizable show runners in the Biz, came to fruition? Believe it or not, we have Tom Cruise to thank for the history-making duo. Darlton tells the Los Angeles Times that while they actually knew each other way back in the day—Carlton gave Damon his first writing gig on Nash Bridges—it was Mission Impossible III that took J.J. Abrams away from his Lost duties, leaving a slot open for Carlton. "Lo and behold, here we are six years later," says Carlton. Elsewhere in the Lost universe, Harold Perrineau talks about Michael's return, and what that means for Libby...

Lost the plot? A guide to the vital questions season six must answer

As the final series of Lost launches on Sky1, there are still plenty of questions outstanding

We're nearly there. If you've found yourself preoccupied with tropical polar bears, smoke monsters and Egyptian time-travel existential battles between good and evil since 2004, you'll no doubt be aware that the final season of Lost is starting this week – in the Us it began on Tuesday, while the UK has to wait until tomorrow to see it on Sky1.

Exclusive Interview: Mark Pellegrino (Supernatural, Lost), Part II

  • TVStar
Yesterday, Mark Pellegrino talked in some detail about his role as Lucifer on the CW hit series Supernatural (TV). Today, in the second half of our exclusive two-part interview, the talented actor sheds admittedly less light on what viewers can expect to see early in the new year when he returns to Lost (TV) as the enigmatic character, Jacob. Damn that Lost veil of secrecy! We also got Pellegrino talking about the upcoming horror film Bad Meat (2009) and even about his skeleton in the closet: the astonishingly awful action-drama on roller blades, Prayer of the Rollberboys (1990), which starred Corey Haim and Patricia Arquette. Lost is one of the most complex and dense series ever produced. Having stepped into the show so late in the game, with your first appearance in the fifth-season finale, "The Incident," how much do you need to understand the Lost universe in order to play a character as enigmatic as Jacob?

Happy 88th birthday, Gene Roddenberry!

  • Comicmix
On this day in 1921 the Great Bird Of The Galaxy, Eugene Wesley Roddenberry, was born in El Paso, Texas. Gene was known as a writer for Dragnet, Naked City, Have Gun, Will Travel, The Lieutenant, The Questor Tapes, Genesis II, Planet Earth, and Strange New World.

Oh, all right, Star Trek, Earth: Final Conflict, and Andromeda. And even a few comics series-- don't tell me you don't remember Gene Roddenberry's Lost Universe from Tekno Comics?

He died in 1991 and his ashes are in orbit now, so when we say the Great Bird Of The Galaxy watches over us, we aren't kidding. Thanks again for letting us all play in your world.
