Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks about his upcoming time travel sci-fi thriller, Looper, in the following sound bite.
He mentions the Looper program and then delves into Bruce Willis, who he says is imposing in real life, but gentle at the same time.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a young Bruce Willis, and was even made up to look as so in the movie through make-up and special effects.
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, 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 will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – 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 (Bruce Willis) 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.
Looper opens in theaters September 28, 2012, directed by Rian Johnson, starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, and Jeff Daniels.
