Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt filming “Looper” in New Orleans
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Even though Rian Johnson has only two pictures under his belt, the director boasts a loyal fan base. That’s because his first two pictures were that good.
If forced to choose, I’d prefer Johnson’s modern take on the hardboiled film noir genre, “Brick,” with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a high-schooler trying to locate his missing ex-girlfriend. But that doesn’t mean I like Johnson’s quirky comedy “The Brothers Bloom” any less. Rachel Weisz is especially winning as a reclusive millionaire who is pulled into con artists’ Mark Ruffalo and Adrien Brody’s scheme – and loves every minute of it.
Needless to say, Johnson’s a director worth paying attention to, so we’re excited that his next project, “Looper,” is underway.
Production Weekly tweets that “Looper” will film in New Orleans from Jan. 24 to April 1.
The IMDB summary says that the film will be set in a near future, where a group of killers – known as Loopers — work for a crime syndicate. Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis are on board, and the screenplay reportedly involves loopy time travel. We are more than intrigued.
No idea of a release date, but we’ll bring you updates as we get them.
