In the highly anticipated sci-fi/time travel adventure LOOPER, a mob hit man is hired to fulfill a contract put out on…himself. Written and directed by RIAN JOHNSON, the film stars JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT, BRUCE WILLIS, EMILY BLUNT, PIPER PERABO, JEFF DANIELS, PAUL DANO and GARRETT DILLAHUNT.
Chosen to open this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, LOOPER cast and director met with entertainment press a couple of days ago to field questions about the movie. One of the topics of discussion was the violent nature of the film and how it might play in the wake of the recent theater shooting in Colorado. JOHNSON defended the action in the film by saying it was essential to his story and necessary to making the movie . (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
