Looper writer/director Rian Johnson revealed to /Film that his next project will be “more cyberpunk.”

Given the strong cyberpunk vibe to Looper – the film noir influences, inequality, hedonism and organised crime – it’s not a totally unexpected choice of direction.

With Ridley Scott still developing a Blade Runner sequel, Sinister‘s C Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson working on Deus Ex: Human Revolution and When Gravity Fails, and the continuous attempts to adapt both Neuromancer and Snow Crash, there’s plenty of competition.
