Written and Directed by: Rian Johnson The script took Rian a number of years to get made, apparently mostly due to executives just not getting the material or why this would be happening in a high school or whatnot. And finally just went around to family and begged for money and made it himself and made it roughly on $500,000. The film stars Josephy Gordon Levitt, Emilie De Ravin (pre-Lost) and Lukas Haas and a number of other people. The film is described as a film noir set in High School. The basic plot outline is this: A teenage loner pushes his way into the underworld of a high school crime ring to investigate the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend. The trailer is available at quicktime and in HD: Brick - Trailer I have a bit of a personal connection to this film, I'm friends with Nathan Johnson, Rian's cousin who scored the film. He did the soundtrack while in England and Rian was back here in the states. Using e-mail and iChat to talk about the soundtrack and mp3's for Rian to edit the film to. Neat use of technology. (Nathan has a band called The Cinematic Underground which is a great band, a good mix of music and theater.) I'm really looking forward to this film, it looks interesting and it's getting good reviews by a lot of people and some fairly important people.
