Casting News

It looks like Maggie Grace is headed to Oahu in November to shoot top-secret Lost scenes as Shannon Rutherford, who was buried on the island back in ’05. Producers had invited Maggie back earlier, but the busy actress had to wait for shooting to conclude on a string of three film projects, including the role she just wrapped as Cameron Diaz’s kid sister in “Knight & Day,” also starring Tom Cruise. I’m hearing Shannon may be cut into an episode shot earlier this fall with brother Boone, played by Ian Somerhalder

You can see the rest of the photos here.

Here is the latest set report from Ryan!! It is a continuation of the off-island Losties, but today’s filming had Jack, Sayid and Ben filming scenes together!!

Here you go:

“LOST” rolled up to Hawaii Medical Center West, a.k.a. St. Francis, in Kalihi (just up the street from Hoffs Drawler and Simon’s Butcher Shop) today. Parked in front, Jack’s Ford Bronco, a blue cargo van with Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning emblazoned on the side, and a Los Angeles Paramedics ambulance. Matthew Fox, Naveen Andrews, and Michael Emerson are on the scene. Jack is on the phone as action is called. Someone, something is somewhere else, and they need to get there “right now.” Jack jumps into his truck, but Sayid and Ben hang back a moment to have an intense conversation. (To adjust for a dip in the grass, Naveen Andrews stands on some sandbags to meet Michael Emerson eye to eye.) Eventually, Sayid takes the wheel of the blue van, and Ben climbs into the passenger seat. They drive off.

New Set Report And Photos

Update: 22:10 Benjamin just emailed me and as most of you suspected that last line should not read “Terrible” but “Awesome”. 🙂
Update: 20:55 It looks like Benjamin now thinks that the logo maybe just a generic Dharma one.
Thanks to Benjamin for the following. Benjamin is hoping Menang Ceme to maybe get a better photo of the new Logo and a description of it.

I’m Benjamin, Claudio’s friend.
I am in the team of the blog “http://lost-spoiler.over-blog.com” and of the lembaga “http://lost.forumsactifs.com“. Richieleb of our lembaga takes to us of Hawaii of the reports of exclusive filming. There are 3 photos with this set report.

Sorry for my English but I am French ! lol !

Here is the rest :

“Hi all, how lucky I was to have spent time with the production team to see Hurley, Jack and director Jack Bender to three feet, and staying a little longer in the rain, I think I saw that Claire, as on one of the photos I took (I had not noticed) by the larger team blog, we see his name appears with that of Jack. Jack is left for 15 hours, and if you go on the blog to see the pictures, the picture where we see two tents covered, and well into 15 hours, he stood there a dozen technicians and a big vision-pana rail close to film a scene from the little camp, I’d be Claire who attended the scene, security told me to go away because the scene had too many new things. One of the scripts that came to see a technician special effects, talking about fire. If you looked at the photo of the camp left one can see a kind of book with a Dharma logo.

On October 21 around 13:30 am if returned, the team was filming in a protected area for two or three hours I saw no one. I took other pictures, the camp had changed his appearance. A new sign dharma down, and one can see inside the shelter. It has pictures of trail or Jack and Hurley were filmed. Jack Bender with the cameraman who kept a small Panamanian hands vision, micro understood, and Hurley and Jack stood in the place where we see a large rock in the middle of the trail. It was difficult to see because at 10 feet there was a small tent with two women who had their film scenes. And I was standing behind with two technicians and one that blocked the path to other foreigners (those who visited the park) while they were filming. I think they took the views in both directions. Hurley and Jack wandered down. The other photos are those filmed the trail, a place especially with large trees should be easy to recognize in episode six that technicians confirmed to me. For an hour or more technicians who attends the scene, were brought from the ends of branches with leaves to hide the iron bars that you see on the edge of the trail.

On October 19 I had been at base camp original (very safe and this one-hour walk on the beach, because everything is private between the road and the beach) the camp is very messed up, the church is always present and there is a hole near for a body in the small cemetery. I have pictures I would put maybe somewhere else. If nothing else I come back to mind. I will share with you. The location of Paradise Park is beautiful, a beautiful jungle stream (they often go through) and very large and strange trees. The next season will be terrible. Thank you”

Filming Update – Long Beach Harbor Club

Hey All,
Once again our good friend Ryan in Hawaii has posted a new set report and it seems like a continuation of the recent filming yesterday.

Today’s report confirms that Ben along with the Oceanic 6 (minus Hurley) are all meeting at the Long Beach Harbor Club. Long Beach is one of the largest ports here in Los Angeles and it seems like maybe the O6 might be making plans to head back to the island!?

Spotted once again are the vehicles of the Losties including the blue carpet cleaning van with the Cantor-Rainier logo (anagram).

Ryan was guessing that the filming was still for Episode 5×04 but the key might be that Hurley was NOT a part of the whole filming.

So what do you all think is happening!? Are the Losties trying to head back to the island!? Where is Hurley!? Still in jail and would they leave him behind!?

Here is the set report and pics:

Once again our good friend Ryan in Hawaii has posted a new set report and it seems like a  Filming Update - Long Beach Harbor ClubThe Waikiki Yacht Club was transformed into the “Long Beach Harbor Club” for evening shoots last night and tonight. Cranes and production trucks were parked nearby, as well as three notable vehicles: the blue Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning van, Kate’s silver Volvo, and a silver Jaguar S-Class. My friend Doug, who knows cars better than I do, says it looks like the 2008 model.

A yacht club member who was fortunately an avid fan said last night’s shoot involved Evangeline Lilly, Yunjin Kim, and a young boy playing Aaron. She said she was back tonight because the roster would be even larger. In addition to Kate and Sun, Sayid (Naveen Andrews), Ben (Michael Emerson) and Jack (Matthew Fox) were due on set.

Lost Filming Update

Thanks to Ryan for this latest filming report.

It was a late night for “LOST” at Sacred Heart Academy in Kaimuki. “LOST” spotter Joel posted a couple of photos and sent Hawaii Blog this report from the scene:

“They had a massive set of lights set up and Ben, Desmond and a woman were in the scene (I think it may have been Sun as she had long, straight, dark hair). I did get a chance to stand around and watch them film the scene. The woman and Ben were talking when Desmond came from the right of the scene. In a loud voice, he said, ‘What are you doing here?!’”

The woman does indeed look like Sun, and the scene does seem to fit in with the overall “rounding up the Oceanic 6″ theme of the past several location shoots. But it’s interesting that they’re connecting with Desmond, who we last saw (filming wise) in the Philippines.

Sacred Hearts and its Romanesque architecture could be standing in for any number of far-flung locations, but I’d guess not Southeast Asia.

Filming Update And Photos – 22Nd October

Update: 16:45 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos. We hope to have some more later so stay tuned.

Thanks to AlaskaDave one of the Lostpedia SysOps for sending this excellent set report and photos all through to us.

1) MANOA VALLEY/JUNGLE:
Right near where they filmed Claire’s Log (iconic log where Claire gave birth,and where drugged up Claire and Ethan hung out), we stumbled across a somewhat large lean-to built entirely of wood and old tarp. There was a pelt (animal skin) hanging on one side of the lean-to. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

As luck would have it, and as I was sneakily taking pictures of the lean-to, a yellow Penske truck pulled up the valley (LOST Crew!) and began to unload tons of old looking crap – old pots, pans, an old bicycle, old metal boxes. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

Some of these old metal boxes had some Dharma logos on them. I wasn’t able to get a clear pic of the Dharma logo stuff, obviously, as I was sneaking the pics, but you can see it in the pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

We stayed to watch them dress the set by tossing tons of old shit all around the lean-to, and inside it. Are we to assume this is the lean-to that Claire brings Jin to? Ironic they were filming right next to the Claire log, eh? 🙂

2) BEACH CAMP:
Wow, Beach Camp is all a flutter with activity! In the main part of Beach Camp, there are lots of smaller little lean-tos, made of sticks and airplane wreckage. However, there are a few larger structures, made with larger sticks and tarps. Some pics of the main Beach Camp set can be seen below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

And here is a wider shot showing some more of the basic lean-tos:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

Just a few hundred yards down from main Beach Camp, they’ve rebuilt Eko’s church, still just made out of sticks, exactly how we saw it last in S2. HOWEVER, the coolest thing is that, right next to the church, they have built a grave! Presumably, this is the gravesite from the Sun-spoiler. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

Here is another pic showing the grave next to a little bit of Eko’s church:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

3) OTHERVILLE/CAMP ERDMAN
Some pretty major stuff here, including a great find left behind by some forgetful crew member :p Otherville was dressed up to look WAY run down. Almost like… its hard to say, but they made it up to be quite broken down and all torn up apart. The playground set had been taped off and looked like something major happened to it. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

They still have the old lights set up around the entire set, and there are broken malibu lights along all of the walkways in Otherville. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

Here’s the cool thing: When we were poking around the playground set, we stumbled across a box left by a crew member that said “2007 Otherville: Broken Malibu Lights” – which places the Otherville set in a timeframe, and verifies that the set is supposed to look all broken up and run down (not that we thought any differently of course :p). Inside were the same lights we had been seeing all over the main Otherville set. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

4) THE FLAME:
Well, they’ve slapped a new coat of paint on The Flame, and have rebuilt the interior! Previously, the flame had no interior walls (as can be seen in Enter 77, when Mikhail is patching up Sayid). However, as of very recently, they’ve patched up the walls, and have updated the paint. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

They’ve also updated the Dharma logo on the outside of the structure:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

5) HAWAI’I FILM STUDIO
Well, we were escorted off property (read: kicked the fuck out), but not before securing a pic of the back of the Temple. See pic below:
 Thanks to AlaskaDave for sending these through these photos Filming Update and Photos - 22nd October

One of the cooler sights was the John Locke well (that he fell down into before meeting Christian in the FDW chamber), which they seemed to be prepping for filming. Same with the Anthony Cooper Pillar. I cant find my pics of that, Im sorry. I know I suck :p

6) PALA FERRY DOCK:
This isn’t a huge thing, but the interesting thing is, normally there’s this little structure at the end of the Pala Ferry Dock, but this week, the structure has been made to look all torn up and taken down. Again, may not be anything huge, but is kind of a neat little find. See pic below:

Jorge Garcia Reveals New Details For Season 5

Hey All,
Kristin at E! Online spoke with LOST’s Jorge Garcia during the Emmy Awards last week and revealed some nice new details including that he will talk to more dead people.

Here is her post:

1) Who is Hurley hanging with these days? “It’s safe to say I’m working with people who are off the Island—I can even say I’m working with Michael Emerson, Ben. He does most of the talking—and he didn’t thank me once for that candy bar.” Ooh, that stinker!

2) What about Ben’s mission to get the gang back to the Island? “I think Hurley is leaning toward regret of having gone off the Island, but I don’t think he’s at the point where he wants to go back, just yet. But it does seem that the Island is pulling us back, some way or another.”

3) What about Hurley and the glorious dead—are they still chatting? Said Jorge, “Yep, and it seems like it doesn’t even faze Hurley any more.”

4) Last but not least, will the Oceanic Six ever become friends again? “Don’t know. Don’t know at all.” Sob.

Snippets From Damon

Thanks to B3RT4 for the heads up on this interview with Damon Lindelof. Here are some snippets from the interview.

Me: At what point are you in creating the tamat episodes?
Lindelof: We’re actually writing the eighth episode right now and breaking the story for the ninth episode. We’re filming the sixth episode. The blueprint for the entire season is done, but we only write the episodes one at a time, because the actual genesis of the scene-by-scene work is the fun part. So we’re almost exactly halfway through.

There’s been so much analysis of the this year’s promotional poster. Do you have a big part in creating that?

Yeah. Everything in the design of that poster is intentional. We oversaw it — now we know the audience looks at that stuff so closely, so we don’t want there to be anything that we don’t approve, especially at this point in the game.

Why is neither Walt nor Vincent in the Season 6 promo picture? — Holly

Well, I’m not going to explain why anything is what it is, other than that everything is by design. You’ll just have to watch the tamat season and decide for yourself. It’s a little bit like, “Why is Paul McCartney holding a cigarette with his right hand when he’s a lefty on the Abbey Road cover?”

Is the ending you envisioned when you first created the show still in place? — adanzis

That’s a great question. Yes, the actual ending ending is exactly the same as we’d always planned on it being, except we didn’t know if we were going to get there after two seasons, four seasons or after six seasons, so the road to the ending has had to change significantly. But the ending itself? Whether people like it or not, that’s the ending we’ve had.

Will Walt will have any major role in the upcoming season? He was important for a while because of his “gift,” but that story has never been realized. — mrhymes01

I think a lot of people are justifiably frustrated about the Walt of it all. We said he has this special ability, and the Others obviously grabbed him and studied him for awhile, then they got freaked out by him and decided to let him go.

I think that there are certain stories on the show that feel like dangling participles based on external factors. For us, we were incredibly limited by the fact that Malcolm David Kelley was growing at an exponentially faster rate than the show was progressing. So, you know, when we showed him in Season 5 and Locke is trying to recruit members of the Oceanic Six, the only way that it worked was to see him three years older. But hopefully, why Walt was special and the role he played on the show will have a new significance when all is said and done. And I’m not sure we really need the character of Walt to explain the significance.

Will we ever get more on the backstory on Libby … or at least find out her last name? — P-D Cougar

Libby is someone we get asked about a lot, and she’s another one of those cases where it’s more of an issue of our relationship with the actor than it is our desire to tell the story. It’s our hope that Cynthia Watros will come back one more time and finish that story, but that’s up to her. We asked her last year, she wasn’t interested in doing it. Hopefully she’ll change her mind.

One actor definitely won’t be returning for the tamat season, right? Can you tell me more about that?

We did ask an actor who’s played a significant role on the show to come back and do some work on Season 6, and they said no. But I’m not going to confirm who that is. All I’ll say is that person was never a series regular.

Damon, I have a question about my second-favorite character on the show, Frank Lapidus. Ever since he appeared on the Season 6 promotional poster, there has been a lot of speculation on message boards. So, anyway, my question is: Will Frank be promoted to main character status next season, and if so, will he be getting a -centric episode? Because that would be basically the most awesome thing ever. — Bish-Fiscuit

Yeah. Lapidus is definitely a series regular this season. Jeff Fahey was just a recurring character up through last year. Now, whether or not Lapidus makes it until the end of the season is anyone’s guess, but he’s definitely one of the A-team this year.

How many people do make it to the end of the season?

You really think I’m going to answer that question? Not all of them, that’s for sure.

Latest Filming Report

A reader over at BuddyTV, Moosky19, has just sent in this filming report.

* The scene witnessed took place at a Catholic school, though Moosky19 believes that they might have been using it as a church because they added an extra Jesus on the cross prop on the exterior.
* The scene had four main characters: Jack, Ben, Sun and Desmond.
* Yes, Desmond.
* Ben, Sun and Jack were using the same Canton Rainier van that we reported about in our last spoiler update, which you can find here.
* In the scene Moosky19 witnessed, Sun and Ben talk in a very serious manner once they exit the van. In the middle of the conversation, Ben pulls something out of his “man purse” and gives it to Sun. Whatever it was, it was small, Moosky19 thinking that maybe it was Jin’s ring. Next, Desmond comes into the scene, and then they all run into the building.
* Desmond is wearing a wedding band. Did he and Penny get married?
* Also, Sun has a gun on her the whole time.
* Moosky19 also noted that everyone appeared to be pretty buddy-buddy with Ben the whole time, or at least they were working with him without animosity.
