The film made its world premiere as the opening night film of TIFF earlier this month, and has been earning critical acclaim across the board – you can read our own five-star review of the film here – and now we’ve got a great new image of Jeff Daniels to share ahead of its release.
“In the futuristic action thriller Looper, 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 will 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.”
Gordon-Levitt reteams once more with his Brick writer-director, with Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt completing the leading trio, and Daniels, Paul Dano, Piper Perabo, Noah Segan, and Garrett Dillahunt supporting.
Looper will be released in the UK and US on 28th September, and that date really can’t come fast enough. The promotion of the film has been brilliant in the past few months, and it’s one we’ve all been looking forward to for a long time, and it should be every bit as good as we’ve hoped, and then some. For now, here’s the new image of Daniels, which you can click to enlarge.
