This could very well be an April Fool’s joke, but Lostpedia is reporting it, so I want to have some confidence. I even looked around for a press release about M. Night Shymalan directing but couldn’t find it. So, it could be.
Either way, it’s an interesting thing to talk about. People on the Lostpedia forums have a mixed reaction. Most of them are saying that it’s an April Fool’s joke, however.
If someone can clear this up, let me know!
