Harry Knowles gets it right sometimes

Cool SCANNER imagery
Website gets its paws on three new images from sci-fi animated film


Ain't It Cool News received three new images from A SCANNER DARKLY, Richard Linklater's upcoming film of Philip K. Dick's science fiction novel. Keanu Reeves, Winona Rider and Robert Downey Jr. star in the film, which uses rotoscope animation over filmed images to achieve its look. (Linklater also used this technique on his 2001 film WAKING LIFE.) EDITOR'S NOTE: VERY COOL-LOOKING ARTWORK.

As it stands right now, Warner Independent Pictures has slated a September 15, 2005 release date for the film.

EDITOR'S NOTE: HERE'S ONE OF THE PICS. GO TO THE WEBADDRESS BELOW FOR THE OTHER TWO.
