Rian Johnson will be working on his most ambitious project yet. Looper is the next one from the director behind the low budget cult classic brick. He followed up that with The Brother’s Bloom another ambitious film with all kinds of quirky narratives tools used.
He is now working on a great ensemble piece with Joseph Gordon Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels and Paul Dano to star. It is going to be another crime caper in the lines of the last mind crime film Inception.
It tells the story of a present day killer who works for a mob in the future and kills people who are sent from the future. He recognizes on victim as himself and hesitates, resulting in the escape of his older self.
Levitt will be using most of the mannerisms of Bruce Willis. Rian Johnson talks about this and says that Joe is really doing Bruce in a big and daring way, but he strikes a balance between obviously imitating Bruce and also building this organic performance. So this will be another ambitious project to watch out for this year.
