LOST Plays to a Requiem

My time spent on television now has a giant void. Only taking the time to sit down for two shows-- LOST and Rome -- each of the shows short 'break' is helping my HD-TV gather dust. However, it looks like ABC is always working behind the shadows when it comes to making a mysterious island even more so.

Darren Aronofsky to Direct LOST

According to the editorial by Entertainment Weekly, pop watch, Darren Aronofsky has signed a deal with ABC allowing him to direct a single episode of the hit television series LOST that is expected to premiere sometime next May.

Who knew cult director Darren Aronofsky was a fan of the boob tube? The Requiem for a Dream helmer has just signed on to direct an episode of ABC’s Lost, which will likely air at the beginning of May sweeps. “It was one of those fantastic calls out of the blue,” says Lost exec producer Carlton Cuse. “His agents let us know he liked the show, and we jumped at the opportunity. Apparently, he had been watching Lost while up in Montreal shooting The Fountain and got hooked.”

Speaking of which, won’t this interfere with completing Fountain, the director’s six years-in-the-making sci-fi epic starring fiancée Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman? “I think he will be done,” speculates Cuse. “We scheduled it so that [the episode] is coming on the heels of finishing The Fountain. And we will try to put together a story that will be well-suited for Darren’s talents and visual imagination.”

I personally loved Requiem for a Dream [for the music and the story] and can only imagine what Darren Aronofsky will be capable of when it comes to setting his style and vision on the island of LOST.

Stay tuned for updates.
