Attack The Block is delicious. There’s no way around it. Glow in the dark aliens vs. sarcastic British punkass kids. It’s delightful in every way imaginable. If you haven’t seen it, and are into that sort of thing, please, for the love of ET, watch it.
The writer/director of Attack The Block, Joe Cornish (The Adventures of Tin-Tin), is up for another round of off-the-wall kick-ass awesomeness. Check out the plot summary for the book he’s adapting for the silver screen, Snow Crash:
The book is set in the near future, when the U.S. exists as a patchwork of corporate-franchise city-states, and private enterprise and the mafia control everything. The plot involves a computer virus that is manifested as a drug called Snow Crash that is transmitted visually from computer screens to unsuspecting users, frying their brains. Hiro Protagonist – that’s the character’s name – a computer hacker/samurai swordsman/pizza delivery driver who investigates and tries to stop the takeover of postmodern civilization.
There is literally no way this can not be fantastic.
