Rian Johnson’s mind bending time travel sci-fi thriller is due to it UK cinemas 28th September. It is a while off yet, but any news is good news on this sure to be highly inventive film. Yesterday an image was released which shows the director himself sat comfortably in his time machine, looking rather proud of himself. Let’s hope he is happy at the fact the film is working out nicely, and the smile is his way of saying “yes, I have something very special in-store for you come 28th September”.
Johnson is no stranger to inventive and original films, if you remember he is the guy responsible for giving us The Brothers Bloom and one of my favourite films of the Noughties, Brick. I am VERY excited about this!
An impressive cast also comes with the high concept story, with names like Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Jeff Daniels, Piper Perabo and Gareth Dillahunt.
Looper is a time-travel action thriller involving a killer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who works for the mob of the future. He, along with other so-called Loopers, dispose of people that are sent from the future. When he recognizes one victim as his future self (Bruce Willis), he hesitates, letting the man escape.
