Finally, Story Details for Rian Johnson's Looper!

17 September 2008 6:20 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

We already brought you almost all the early details anyone could ever want on Rian Johnson's next project, titled Looper, but today we've got a minor update with more information.

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.

Endgame Entertainment, which financed and produced "Bloom," will likely come on to finance and produce "Looper," though the principals said there have been no formal negotiations yet.

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

Johnson is known for giving a traditional format an original spin. His debut "Brick," a media and cult hit released by Focus in 2006, set a noir tale in a contemporary Southern California high school, while "Bloom" is a modern take on the conman picture, »
