Trailer Trash: Looper

Chick 1 says:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis playing the same character at different ages?  Yes, please!  Throw in some Emily Blunt and time travel and I am there.

Gordon-Levitt plays a hitman who kills targets sent back from the future.  But one day the target sent back is…him.  Oops.  Check it out.

Looks a litte intense for me but there are enough people I like to get me there.  Director Rian Johnson wrote the script.  He also directed two other movies that I haven’t seen but have always wanted to; Brick (a film noir set in high school and also starring Gordon-Levitt) and The Brothers Bloom (quirky caper with another amazing cast).  Time for a viewing party.

Looper opens September 28th.

Some tidbits from the world of upcoming projects.

cate_blanchettNew & Old News:  Struggling to get on its feet is an on again/off again Robin Hood production called Nottingham that has the potential to be awesome if it can get its act together.  It currently has Ridley Scott attached to direct and his old pal Russell Crowe to star.  There was a rumor circulating for a while that Crowe would actually play both Robin Hood and the Sherriff of Nottingham but the movie is apparently moving in a more traditional direction now with Crowe only playing the hero.  Read more

File these under “I Hope They Know What They’re Doing.”

Old & New News:  There is no shortage of rumors surrounding the casting iron-man1of Iron Man 2.  We’ve already discussed the replacement of Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle here.  Added to the mix is Tim Robbins as Stark’s dad, obviously in flashbacks.  That could work.  I like that they keep casting “serious” actors in a superhero movie.
