Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks different in the first image from Looper
One of the films that launched Joseph Gordon-Levitt into the movie spotlight (he was already known as a TV star in ‘3rd Rock From The Sun’) was Rian Johnson’s BRICK. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was great in the film and anyone who saw it at the time knew that both he and Johnson were going to be doing a lot more movies. Well, Johnson went on to direct the quirky THE BROTHERS BLOOM and some TV shows and Joseph Gordon-Levitt went on to star in several high profile films like 500 DAYS OF SUMMER, INCEPTION, 50/50 and of course, this summer’s THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. But Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Johnson remained close (he even made a cameo in Bloom) and soon started working on the science fiction film LOOPER. You can see the first image of Joseph Gordon-Levitt from the film above.
The film sounds like one of those that’s going to be confusing to people. In the film, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play a time traveling hitman. It takes place in the distant future where hitmen hide their bodies in different times, thus making it impossible for police to track them. The center of the story is occurs when Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character is sent to kill his future self, played by Bruce Willis. And as you look at the picture below, maybe you’re thinking that Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks a little strange. Well, the idea was to put him in some practical prosthetic so he’d look more like Bruce Willis. I think it may have made more sense to put prosthetic on Willis, so you wouldn’t have Joseph Gordon-Levitt wearing them all film, but I guess we’ll get used to it.
Along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, the film also stars Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano, Piper Perabo and Garret Dillahunt. The film had a panel at Wondercon and supposedly, the trailer is going to be released soon. The film hits theaters everywhere on September 23rd. (I09)
