Rian Johnson's next

Rian Johnson (the awesome writer/director behind BRICK) has confirmed to IGN that his next film will be LOOPER, a violent and dark sci-fi flick in the vein of TERMINATOR...

"It's sci-fi, but it's very much -- well, I think people toss out Philip Dick sci-fi when they mean 'small, dark' sci-fi. Although, when I think of Philip Dick's books, it's something very different. I think people are confusing it with the movie Blade Runner... To me, it's a lot more like the first Terminator... It's very sci-fi, but it's very character-based and very concentrated. It's very different from the Terminator movies, but it's like the first Terminator in that time travel is involved with it, but only as a plot device."

I just hope he casts Nora Zehetner again. That chick is the cutest. One time I stared into her eyes and I found both the courage and the intent to be a better man.
Extra Tidbit: Looper is also a really sweet indie band.

I'm not usually a huge fan of sci-fi, but if it's dark (or noirish, hehe) like T1, T2 and Blade Runner then I'll definitely check it out. Especially after his first flick. I've been waiting eagerly to see what Johnson does next ever since I first saw Brick a couple of years ago.

Yeah Brick was pretty awesome so I'll definitely be looking forward to this. Why can't Hollywood get young, talented directors like this, who are actually in touch with the younger generation, to make video game movies? I mean they tried it with comic book movies and we ended up getting Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

Hmm...

maybe we should just give him all the Oscars now, skip the suspense...


Yes, all. Best animated short included.

Although he doesn't really say anything other than the fact it's a "dark scifi film," Brick was a surprisingly good movie, so I'm looking forward to this one (love a good sci-fi film.)
