Rian Johnson‘s Looper is gaining some positive buzz. For me personally, I’m most interested in it for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and for the film’s plot, which revolves around “a hitman whose victims are sent back in time from 30 years in the future. He knocks them off and, meanwhile, back in the future, there’s no trace of the crime. But then his future self, played by Willis, shows up, and things get difficult.”
Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, Garrett Dillahunt, Paul Dano , and Xu Qing co-star and Johnson’s third film is looking pretty good from where I’m standing. Johnson is most well known for Brick, which also starred Gordon-Levitt. It was a great film and really showcased Johnson’s talents as a director.
With Looper, he seems to be doing something real interesting. The whole time travel thing has me interested and I can’t wait to see Willis square off against Gordon-Levitt. Plus, I can’t complain about that supporting cast either. There’s no trailer yet but we’ll be sure to let you know when we get one.
