Former “Lost” showrunner Damon Lindelof has made a major deal with Disney Pictures to write a secretive sci-fi film with the working title “1952” that is intended to have “multiple platform aspirations” says Deadline.
No further details as such on the story. Lindelof has worked on the scripts for “Cowboys & Aliens”, Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” and will co-write the upcoming “Star Trek” sequel.
Meanwhile, the site also reports that “Thor” and “X-Men: First Class” scribes Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz have sold an untitled contemporary disaster/action film pitch to Skydance Productions.
No word on the contents of the film other than it’ll be in the vein of 70’s disaster flicks like “The Towering Inferno”.
