Rian Johnson’s Future Includes Looper


The Brothers Bloom writer/director Rian Johnson has set a new project, a time-travel thriller titled Looper that again will see the filmmaker seek to reinvent a familiar genre.

The project will team Johnson with producer Ram Bergman, who produced Johnson’s previous two films, with the pair eyeing a 2009 start date. Johnson again will direct from his own script.

Looper is set in a present-day world in which a group of hitmen are sent their victims from the future.
