Episode VIII director due at the BFI

Director Rian Johnson will be at the BFI Southbank next month to take part in BFI Screen Epiphanies.

Johnson has chosen Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin as the film that has inspired him and he will attend the screening on July 27.

The series invites filmmakers to screen and discuss films that have inspired their own work.

Johnson’s work includes sci-if blockbuster Looper as well as various episodes of Breaking Bad.

He’ll be based in London for a while as Star Wars: Episode VIII is due to film at Pinewood Studios ahead of a release in 2017.
