Looper stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt joined writer/director Rian Johnson to discuss one of 2012’s most anticipated movies. Looper finds Joseph Gordon-Levitt wearing prosthetics to look like a younger Bruce Willis, and that initially confused pretty much everyone – including his co-star, Emily Blunt.
In this video from the 2012 San Diego Comic Con press conference, the three discuss what sets Looper apart and what audiences can expect.
Watch the video:
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 (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 (Willis) for assassination.
