Jeff Daniels Joining the Impressive Cast of Rian Johnson's 'Looper'
As if having a high concept sci-fi film directed by the man who brought us Brick and The Brothers Bloom wasn't exciting enough, director Rian Johnson went ahead and rounded up Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and even director Shane Carruth to star in Looper. The cast is already great, but why not throw a couple more names in there just for good measure? Variety has done just that as the trade reports Jeff Daniels (The Lookout), Piper Perabo ("Covert Affairs") and Noah Segan (The Brothers Bloom) have now rounded out the cast of this promising flick, but their roles were not specified.
If you don't recall, the story follows a group of hitmen (called Loopers) in present-day who are sent their targets from the future. We focus on Gordon-Levitt's character as he discovers that one of his victims is actually the older version of himself from the future and lets him go instead of killing him. Then it's a race against time to track him down and kill the older version of himself in order to save his own future. You can see why I cannot wait to see this flick, especially from a director like Rian Johnson. Are you excited?

This is just getting better and better. Daniels is rock solid. It will be fun to see him and Gordon-Levitt back again.
