LOOPER Nominated For "Original Screenplay" Writers Guild Award

Director Rian Johnson's script for his sci-fi thriller Looper, which stars TDKR's Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has been nominated by the Writers Guild Awards in the "Original Screenplay" category. The ceremonies will be held next month.



With the simultaneous ceremonies scheduled to be held February 17th in Los Angeles and New York, the nominees for the Writers Guild Awards have officially been announced. Most of the nominations aren't very surprising, but in the "Original Screenplay" category, director Rian Johnson's script for his critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller Looper has received a nod. The film, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, has been campaigning for Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards. Fingers crossed that the script will be nominated for an Oscar.
