In this science fiction action movie, Willis plays a contract killer named Joe. Joe belongs to a group which disposes of problematic citizens by sending them back in time to be killed by a group of people called “loopers”. Joe suddenly finds himself sent back 30 years to the year 2044, where he encounters his younger self – played by co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Old Joe tries to convince young Joe to let him live. Written and Directed by Rian Johnson.
I’m really pleased how well Looper turned out. And I’m really pleased for everyone involved. The actors — and especially for Rian. He knew what he wanted, got the cast he wanted, told the story he wanted and never had to compromise.
