We have fear when we hear of new Bruce Willis movies, but this one looks… different
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Looper is shaping up to look pretty cool and the premises… Bruce Willis is an assassin hired to kill himself in a time-travel assassination and along the way he meets Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the younger version of himself. Head pickled? We’re hoping this is more 12 Monkeys than Surrogates…
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.
