Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

There’s a title I never thought I’d write. But it’s true. In from Cannes is the news that Bruce Willis is joining the cast of Rian Johnson‘s science fiction time travel story Looper. Being billed as a Terminator-esque thriller, Looper will star Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a hit man who works for a crime syndicate sending targets back through time to be assassinated in the past. The assassins, known as ‘Loopers’, bump them off in the past, creating a world where there is no trace of a crime. It’s a simple, clean system of offing one’s enemies. That is, until complications arise.

Willis will play the future version Gordon-Levitt’s character, whom we can only assume is the hero of this story. Based on Johnson’s work with Gordon-Levitt in Brick and the immensely clever premise of this film, there’s no reason to be anything but excited about Looper. According to Deadline, it isn’t just fans who are excited. Buyers are all over this one as well. That leads us to believe that more details are coming soon.
