It seems that with prequels, sequels, remakes and reboots becoming all the rage on the big screen, the small screen are looking to get in on the action. A prequel to the hit television series Sex and the City is already being made and now it seems that a Lost prequel is set to be made.
So far the details are not entirely clear but it is believed that the Lost prequel will be focussing on the Dharma Initiative and their time on the island. So far, people have been referring to the Lost prequel as, Lost: The Dharma Initiative. Original right?
The series is said to start with the Dharma Initiative being thought up and as the series develops, the Dharma Initiative develops with it. It is not yet known whether J.J. Abrams, Jeffrey Lieber or Damon Lindelof will be involved and it is unlikely that any of the original Lost cast will star in the show.
Casting for Lost: The Dharma Initiative is set to get underway later this month, with filming due to begin this summer. The show has yet to be picked up by a Network, so only a pilot episode will be made for now, with the view to a full season being picked up.
PART OF AN APRIL FOOLS GAG TAKEN FROM FANSSHARE.COM - DID THEY GET YOU?
While the majority of you will love Ian Somerhalder because of his performances in the hit vampire television series The Vampire Diaries, I prefer him from a time when he was at his best. No disrespect to Ian, he is still fantastic in The Vampire Diaries but I feel that there was a time when he was better.
That time, as you can probably tell from the title, is when Ian Somerhalder was in Lost. Ian’s performances in Lost were superb and it was a shame that his character Boone was killed off so early. Ian did still appear in a few flashback scenes but it just wasn’t the same.
I have been re-watching Lost right from the beginning of season one and once Ian Somerhalder died, I kind of felt a little disappointed. Maybe my love for The Vampire Diaries has increased my love of Boone in Lost but I still feel that Ian Somerhalder was superb in Lost.
When Boone died in Lost, it brought a tear to my eye, which is a testament to the performance of Ian Somerhalder. As you can probably tell, I am a fan of the work of Ian Somerhalder and he seems like a genuinely nice guy in real life too. Keep up the good work Ian. Arriba!!
Do you think Ian Somerhalder is better in Lost or The Vampire Diaries?
Evangeline Lilly has previously revealed how her character in the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, is not an authentic character from the book. However, that has not stopped the actress from having some great fun on the set of the film. Evangeline also admitted that she is not really a fan of science fiction, which makes her career so far very interesting.
Lilly explained, “Yeah, for a young woman who’s really not into sci-fi, I’m very confused about my film choices. I’m having the greatest time in the world in New Zealand. I was a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien growing up, and if I had to choose anything I could have pretended to be in those books, it would have been, hands down, without question, an elf. And I am playing an elf. And it’s the most fun. It’s the greatest thing ever. My ears are the biggest things you’ve ever seen, and I love them.”
Evangeline Lilly used to be a Flight Attendant before she decided that she wanted to change Jobs and become an actress instead. Evangeline has had a very impressive career so far and is probably best known for her role in the television series Lost. You can see Evangeline Lilly playing an elf, when The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released on December 14, 2012.
Lost actor Josh Holloway has revealed that, when he was a young boy, he always had a dream of becoming a professional basketball player and making it all the way to the NBA. Josh claims that his coaches were always very positive and always encouraged him to aim high and fight for his dreams. However, Josh just was not quite good enough, so turned his attention to other things.
Holloway explained, “I have always had a passion for basketball. I was determined to become an NBA baller. It was at a time when Magic Johnson, Dr. J and Kareem in the ’70s shorts were everywhere. Coaches were like, ‘You can be anything you want,’ and I believed them. I trained hard and I was good. I could play. I got so abused in high school. Being on the varsity team but never playing, scrimmaging and getting beat up by all the big players.”
He added, “I was worn out and not having any fun, and my grades suffered because all I did was try to be a baller.” Before then joking, “I finally discovered p*ssy but I always played basketball because I loved it.” Josh Holloway can next be seen on the big screen, when he stars alongside Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which is released on December 21 in the US and December 26 in the UK.
Matthew Fox will forever be remember for his portrayal of the character Jack Shephard in the supernatural television series Lost. However, his upbringing is a far cry from his Hollywood lifestyle now, as Matthew and his family moved to Wyoming when he was just a baby and he was brought up learning the ways of the rancher in Cowboy country.
Fox explained, “I absolutely loved it. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. It’s growing up on the reservation. I grew up in a part of the world where the mentality is that you’re going to figure all of that stuff out for yourself, and hopefully you’re not going to lose a limb while you do. My mom and dad did an incredible job, and the fact that I and my brothers made it through doing some of the things we did, and nobody lost an arm or worse, is a real tribute to them.”
He added, “As much as we were rebels and looked for excitement in certain ways, we always kept our heads on straight, we never went too far.” Matthew Fox can be seen on the big screen next year, when he appears alongside Brad Pitt and Eric West in the Marc Forster movie World War Z, which is set to be released on December 21, 2012 in the US and January 3, 2013 in the UK.
Lost actress Evangeline Lilly has revealed how her character in the Peter Jackson movie The Hobbit is not an authentic character from the J.R.R. Tolkien books. Evangeline also admitted that the character is very well written and that she hopes fans do not turn against her.
Lilly explained, “My character is an invention of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh. So, either fans are going to love her or absolutely despise and be bitter towards her because she’s not authentic. I believe she is authentic, because Tolkien refers to The Wooded Owls, he just doesn’t talk about who they are specifically. Peter and Fran know that world so well. They’re not going to create a character that is not true to Tolkien’s world.”
Evangeline Lilly has previously discussed the pressures that she felt being involved in such a potentially massive box office smash. You can see Evangeline Lilly portraying the elf Tauriel when The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released on December 14, 2012.
Lost actress Evangeline Lilly has revealed that she has had so much support and so much training during her preparation for her role in The Hobbit that if she fails to impress, it is her own fault. Evangeline even praised director Peter Jackson for his support and inspiration.
Lilly explained, “working with Pete Jackson is super inspiring. I have a dialogue coach, an emotion coach, a language coach, a stunts coach. So I should by rights be great in this film but if I f*** up it’s my fault.” However, she is rumoured to be doing a great job so far.
Evangeline Lilly is set to appear in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit alongside Martin Freeman, Stephen Fry and Lee Pace as well as Lord Of The Rings regulars Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom and Ian McKellen, as well as many others. The Hobbit is set to be released on December 14, 2012.
