The heavily anticipated sci-fi time travel flick, Looper, is finally starting to reveal itself. Directed by Rian Johnson (Brick) and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) and Bruce Willis (Hudson Hawk) as the same damn character! That’s time travel folks! They both play the same hitman who’s last job is to… wait for it… ICE HIMSELF! Now I know it sounds like a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie but with Johnson at the helm, if the insanely well done film noir murder mystery Brick is any indication, this will be good.
Want more proof? In preparation for the release of the official teaser trailer, Sony Pictures has released some vignettes with Levitt and Johnson talking about the movie interlaced with some footage from the film.
Check out two of them after the jump.
Official Synopsis via the Looper Facebook page:
Time travel will be invented, but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper”—a hired gun, like Joe —is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good. . . until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self for assassination. the film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
