17 December 1973
Place Of Birth:
Maryland
Best Known As:
The writer/director of 'Knives Out'
Rian Johnson wrote and directed 2019's Knives Out and was nominated for an Oscar for the screenplay. A film school student from USC, Johnson's first feature, Brick, earned critical raves in 2005, and allowed him to keep on making movies. Critics loved his follow-up, The Bloom Brothers (2008, starring Adrien Brody), but it disappeared at the box office. Johnson bounced back with 2012's Looper, a time-travel action movie that starred Brick star Joseph Gordon-Levitt and featured Bruce Willis. Johnson has also worked in television, most notably directing three episodes of Breaking Bad, and by 2014, he was named to direct Star Wars: The Last Jedi (released in 2017).
