Rian Johnson Crams Even More Acting Talent Into ‘Looper’

By  · Published on December 1st, 2010

Looper has already got Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in starring roles plus whoever else director Rian Johnson can entice into smaller parts for his science fiction attack on linear time structures. One of those smaller roles is going to be played by none other than Paul Dano.

According to The Playlist, Dano will play another hitman who uses time travel to kill people. This raises the big question of whether Hitler is going down or not. Maybe they’ll just go back in time and tell him that his artwork is the tops. Would that be enough to prevent the mass killings? Probably. It wouldn’t stop the mustache though.

At any rate, Looper starts filming soon, and Johnson will most likely loop even more strong talents into the mix.
