Rian Johnson has been on my list of favorite directors since Brick hit back in 2005, so I’m excited to share this poster (via the wonderful /Film) for his next film, Looper.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 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. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
A trailer for the film is scheduled for release next Friday, and we’ll be sure to post it as soon as we can.
Looper hits theaters on September 28th, 2012.
