Rian was interviewed recently by the infamous Kevin Smith for two of his podcasts: SModcast and SMovieMakers. Split between the two podcasts, their conversation is over three frickin' hours long.

SModcast #239: Skip To My Looper: This first hour they talk mostly about Rian's origin story leading up to Brick, and then take a huge tangent about faith and religion.
SMovieMakers #15: Win One For the Looper: The next two hours they talk more about moviemaking, Looper, and Bruce Willis.

Apparently Kevin Smith had a terrible experience directing Bruce Willis in Cop Out, so a LOT of the podcast is him talking about that (which is somewhat unfortunate). Emily and Joe are discussed, of course Rian makes sure to say Noah's name at least twice, and even Paul Dano gets a mention, but weirdly Jeff Daniels was never brought up.

Of course, probably the most exciting moment of the podcast is when, near the end, Smith asks what's next, and Rian says he's working on something new (the first I've heard it mentioned, although I kind of assumed). He said it's sci-fi, but totally different than Looper, then mumbles something I had to listen to five times before guessing was "cyberpunk." That surprised the hell out of me; after going from noir to con man to sci-fi, I expected the next movie to be a whole different genre. Not going to lie: I was holding out for a western.

Actually, I'm almost more excited that Rian said he wants to make some more shorts. I am totally on board with that.

Hmph, I'd have offered to help, but I can't even sew.

All you really need to make shorts is a pair of scissors.

Cyberpunk feature or shorts, whatever he chooses to do next, I just hope that he can find some young, talented, unemployed guy somewhere in Los Angeles to assist him... There must be someone...

I'm in that phase of writing where you're constantly feeling guilty for not writing.

I'll try again later today. I was listening in the car the other day, but when I arrived at the second destination of my errands and Smith still hadn't finished his long-winded introduction, I lost my zeal to listen.

I know that feel, bro. (Passes bottle)

(Rian gives a "who-let-that-guy-in" look, summons security)

I love writing, I just hate the overwhelming fear and panic that comes during any lull where my fingers aren't physically hitting the keys.

I love writing. I love shooting. I hate the bit in between.

Oh, you mean "my life"?

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s what you don’t understand about writing: It is a misery. Thinking of things? Boy, that’s fun. Having written? That is the best. The part where you have to tell your fingers to tap the appropriate keys on the keyboard? Blegh. You can keep it.

Kurt Vonnegut, talking to his brother:

Quote:
He asked me politely how my work was going. I think he respects but is baffled by my work.

I said that I was sick of it but that I had always been sick of it. I told him a remark which I had heard attributed to the writer Renata Adler, who hates writing, that a writer was a person who hated writing.

I told him, too, what my agent, Max Wilkinson, wrote to me after I complained again about what a disagreeable profession I had. This was it: "Dear Kurt - I never knew a blacksmith who was in love with his anvil."


From the introduction to Slapstick.
