In the world of the future as seen in 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 (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 (Willis) for assassination. Time travel just got a helluva lot more complicated…!
Written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick), Looper co-stars Jeff Daniels (TV’s The Newsroom), Paul Dano (Knight and Day) and Piper Perabo (TV’s Covert Affairs).
