A time-traveling actioner that pits Joseph Gordon-Levitt against his older self, played by Bruce Willis? We don't need to know much more to be sold on the idea, but add to that the fact it's the third directorial effort by writer-director Rian Johnson and features a supprting cast that includes Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Paul Dano -- color us excited as hell.

Blunt Looper

A time-traveling actioner that pits Joseph Gordon-Levitt against his older self, played by Bruce Willis? We don't need to know much more to be sold on the idea, but add to that the fact it's the third directorial effort by writer-director Rian Johnson and features a supprting cast that includes Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Paul Dano -- color us excited as hell.

We've already seen trailers and posters from the film and we have a feeling of what's in store, but we now also have a better look at co-star Blunt, in a reportedly ass-kicking role, as well as more photos of a prosthetics-heavy Gordon-Levitt. The story follows Gordon-Levitt's lead, a hitman sent his targets from the future by the mob, who realises one of the men sent to him is his future-self. We're sure there'll be plenty of twists and turns along the way as well with Piper Perabo, Noah Segan, Garret Dillahunt and Xu Qing also part of the cast.

"Looper" will thrill audiences starting September 28th and we're guessing is likely to show up at TIFF (where Johnson's last film "Brothers Bloom" debuted) first. [AllMoviePhoto]
