Rian Johnson made a big splash in movie circles with Brick, although his follow-up, The Brothers Bloom, failed to excite the same attention. However he’s now reteaming with Brick’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the time-travel thriller, Looper, and the first images from the actor in movie have now shown up online.
The time travel movie follows a hitman, Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who is sent victims from the future so that he can kill them in the past, and then there’s absolutely no trace of the crime in the present. When the hitman’s older self (Bruce Willis) arrives with orders to be killed, things get difficult. To be honest, you’d have thought they’d have found another hitman, as asking someone to kill themselves is a bit of a big ask (although Joe’s victims are normally sent hooded, so he doesn’t known who he’s killing).
The film’s currently due out September 12th in the UK, but take a look at the new pics above and below.
