First Look: Rian Johnson & His Awesome Time Machine in 'Looper'
As his New Years present to patient fans, filmmaker Rian Johnson recently unveiled a photo of him and the time machine from his new sci-fi film Looper on his official Tumblr (tip via SlashFilm). We've been following along for updates all last year and hearing great buzz for this time travel assassin flick, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, as well as Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, Paul Dano and Jeff Daniels. SlashFilm says it's Johnson "sitting in the film's giant iron womb of a time machine." I can't wait to see this thing in use in the film too, it looks awesome! One of my most anticipated movies to see in 2012.
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. FilmDistrict/TriStar Pictures will be releasing Looper on September 28th this year. Stay tuned!
