Published: April 9, 2012 - 12:53pm
The upcoming film by director Rian Johnson, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis playing the same person, tells the story of hitmen (“loopers”) who use time-travel to cover the tracks of their murders.
Looper is set in the near future, when time-travel is possible but very illegal. The film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Joe, a sharp, savvy hitman. But Joe is no ordinary hitman. The hooded, bound victims he kills are sent back in time from 30 years in the future: he shoots them, burns the bodies, and all trace of the crime disappears. Life is pretty good for Joe, until one day a body arrives without a hood: it's his future self (portrayed by Willis). And he's not going down without a fight.
Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Piper Perabo is directed by Rian Johnson and is scheduled for theatrical release on September 28th, 2012.
