We’ve already seen Bruce Willis packing heat in Rian Johnson’s sci-fi actioner “Looper”, but there hasn’t been much of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Willis’ younger self in the movie. Well, that’s changed. Coming off Wonder Con, here’s your first look at Gordon-Levitt, packing pistols and looking more badass than we’ve ever seen him before. I guess reuniting with his “Brick” director is good for the kid.
“Looper” has JGL (as he’s known to his friends) playing Joe, who is no ordinary hitman, we’re told. Joe kills people sent back in time from 30 years in the future by the mob. By killing them in the past, all traces of the crime disappears in the future. Things get complicated for Joe when one day a body arrives without a hood — it’s his future self, played by Willis. Things … get complicated from there.
Also starring Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels.
