Inception star Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be teaming up with action-film guru Bruce Willis for a new Terminator-like sci-fi thriller, Looper

According to director Rian Johnson, Looper is a time travel flick set in the near future in a crime-oriented industrial town in Kansas. Time travel does not yet exist, but will be created within a few decades.  The plot is based on a group of killers called Loopers who work for a crime syndicate in the future.  The crime bosses send their intended victims back in time to the Loopers, who shoot them and dispose of the body – the perfect crime given that the victim simply disappears from the future and the corpse does not technically exist in the past.

This will be the third feature film for The Brothers Bloom director, and it will be his second time working with Gordon-Levitt, who was cast in Johnson’s 2005 film Brick.  Willis was just recently confirmed as part of the cast, and there are rumors that he will be playing the future version of Gordon-Levitt’s character, though this has not yet been officially confirmed by Johnson. 

Filming for Looper is expected to begin after Gordon-Levitt wraps up shooting his scenes for David Koepp’s thriller Premium Rush, which is currently in production in New York City.     

A release date for the film has not yet been set, but let’s hope that we see it in cinemas sometime next year!
