Oregonian critic Shawn Levy has interviewed Gus Van Sant about his next film, Paranoid Park, which the director-writer is calling “Crime and Punishment in high school.” (Wait…Larry Gross wrote a script in the late ’90s literally called “Crime and Punishment in High School”, and it was called Crime and Punishment in Suburbia when it came out in 2000.) Van Sant’s film will be based on a novel by “sometime Portlander” Blake Nelson. The book will be published in September by Viking Juvenile, and Gus’s film will begin shooting around Portland in the fall. Set in the world of Portland’s skateboarders, it’s about a teenage kid “who accidentally kills a security guard and has to figure out what to do when police start to investigate the death.”
