“"This was Damon Lindelof’s 2nd Draft," wrote Ain’t It Cool News proprietor Harry Knowles on Friday, before diving into a script review of “Prometheus.” The coming film from director Ridley Scott hits theaters on June 8, but Knowles apparently got his hands on Lindelof’s screenplay.
Except for the fact that he probably didn’t.
"Hate to break it to you, @headgeek666 [Knowles’ Twitter handle], but there’s no ‘Planet Zeus’ in my draft," Lindelof wrote on Twitter. “Or in @jonspaihts’ work. I think you’ve been duped!” Jon Spaihts is another credited writer on “Prometheus,” which exists in the same universe as Scott’s “Alien,” but isn’t a direct prequel.
Knowles disagreed with Lindelof’s assertion, writing that the script he received —before the trailers for “Prometheus” debuted — featured scenes that “match so perfectly” with the marketing materials.
Reached for comment by HuffPost Entertainment senior writer Mike Ryan, Lindelof maintained that Knowles’ script was phony……”
