You could hardly read a negative review of Prometheus without at least one reference to how mad the reviewer was over the ending of Lost, and plothole plothole plothole all Damon Lindelof's fault!!!! Well, if you didn't like part one for whatever reason - I kinda dig any movie that suggests we were created to be bio-weapons, as the stuff growing at the back of my fridge and under my couch suggests I'm fulfilling that potential - sequel news of any kind may not be welcome, but maybe this recent quote from Mr. Lindelof will soothe things over a bit:
...much to the delight of all the fanboys, I don't see myself being involved in Prometheus-er.
You can read his reasons why over at Collider.com, which broke the news. Suffice it to say here that it was mostly an issue of time management rather than, maybe, butthurt. At least, that's his story.
