First Look: Badass Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's New Sci-Fi 'Looper'
Oh hell yes! Empire has debuted the first official photo from Rian Johnson's new sci-fi film Looper, which we've been hearing about and writing about for a year or so. Starring in the film is Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a time-traveling looper named Joe, and Bruce Willis as the older version of the same person. If that casting doesn't intrigue you, I'm sure this photo will at least pique your interest, until we see a trailer that is. I have a feeling they're trying to illicit similar feelings as Inception in terms of badass sci-fi action, but it's pretty damn awesome seeing Willis brandishing a weapon like that in the new Rian Johnson flick. Check it!
Looper is the third film from Rian Johnson following his breakout hit Brick and The Brothers Bloom after that. We've already seen plenty of behind-the-scenes set photos from the film, as Johnon has been running a fantastic Tumblr with photos updates almost daily, as well as a Twitter, too. Looper focuses on a mobster from the future who sends his targets back in time, but one day discovers himself as the target, causing him to go on the run. I'm a huge fan of Rian Johnson and I'm already very excited to see how his first sci-fi film turns out. It has a great cast (Emily Blunt too!) and everything looks awesome so far. Stay tuned for more!
