In the futuristic action thriller 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 (Joseph 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 (Bruce Willis) for assassination.
Rian Johnson was born in Maryland and raised in San Clemente, California. He attended the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. He has written and directed the feature films Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper.
