JJ Abrams has quashed rumours that he will be directing Lost’s season six finale in 2010. Despite co-creating the series with Damon Lindelof and Jeffrey Lieber, Abrams’s involvement in the show since season two has largely been in the executive producing capacity. As reported by Screen Rant, Abrams had this to say to when interviewed by Time:
“It would be an honour to go back and direct the finale. The reason I won’t do it is that Jack Bender, who is the directing producer on the show, has essentially earned the right to do whatever he wants. He should be directing the finale.”
Lost season five has finished its run on television screens and will return for its final season early next year.
