According to Matthew Fox (via), after LOST focused on filling in the boxes on a wish list. The last one was to perform a western. So, having fulfilled the purpose, he no longer saw the point in continuing to carry out new projects. And instead he could focus on other interests. Especially in his life as a father of a family.
“I had kind of a wish list in my mind of things I wanted to accomplish in the industry, and after doing Bone Tomahawk by 2014, he had completed the wish list. she wanted to do a western. It’s a western very strange, but it’s a western. And that completed the to-do list.
At that point in my life, our kids were at an age where I felt like I really needed to get involved again. I had been focused on work for some time, and [mi esposa] Margherita had run the family very well, but I felt like it was time to be home, and I really felt like I was retiring from the business and working on other creative elements that are really personal to me, like some music and writing.”
