Damon Lindelof - Damon Lindelof not writing Prometheus sequel

Damon Lindelof will not write the sequel to 'Prometheus'.

The 'Lost' writer redrafted Jon Spaihts' script for the first film, but now a sequel is underway, he has ruled himself out due to clashes with other projects.

He told Collider.com: ''I'm usually very single-minded creatively. I can only be working on one thing at a time. So I said to [director Sir Ridley Scott], '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'.

''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.''

Referring to criticism he received after the film's release, he added: ''Much to the delight of all the fanboys, I don't see myself being involved in [the Prometheus sequel].''

Damon recently worked on the screenplay for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' and is also writing a TV project.

Ridley has already started work on the sequel - which is tentatively titled 'Paradise' - and is aiming for a 2014 or 2015 release.

He said: ''From the very beginning, I was working from a premise that lent itself to a sequel.

''I'd love to explore where [character Dr. Shaw] goes next and what does she do when she gets there because if it is paradise, paradise can't be what you think it is.''

Noomi Rapace is expected to return as Dr. Shaw for the sequel, as is Michael Fassbender, who played robot character David.
