Sony Pictures’ two hour Hall H presentation at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con includes the highly anticipated sci-fi action flick Looper, starring Bruce Willis, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a young Bruce Willis. They both play the same character at different ages – an assassin paid to go back in time and kill enemies of whoever is paying them before those enemies can cause trouble for the paying mobster.
Looper writer/director Rian Johnson will join Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt to discuss the film and show some new footage.
If you’re attending the convention, you can check out the panel yourself at 4:35 PM Pacific Time in Hall H (that’s the start time of the entire Sony panel). If not, keep it parked right here and for the latest on the film, brought to you live by Screen Rant.
On the script for Looper: JGL is talking about how this is the first time someone has written a character specifically for him to play.
We’re about to take a look at a little piece from Looper.
Wiseman notes that the model he used for dealing with the time travel issues in the movie was the original Terminator.
JGL on working with Blunt…He notes that she is very funny adding that “most pretty girls aren’t funny.”
JGL on working with Willis: “He was really into the work…was really excited to do it. He’s done a lot of movies. He’s done a lot of great movies.”
No one has asked JGL about The Dark Knight Rises yet. Hoping someone asks about it.
JGL: “Some movies get made and their goal is to make money which is not as interesting.”
He notes that Wiseman loves to make movies and that’s why he does it.
JGL just answered a question about playing a young Bruce Willis and preparing for it mentally and physically.
“I didn’t work out for shit for this movie,” he said to hearty audience laughter.
An audience member asked about challenging roles for the main actors.
Blunt stated that she “felt like this is the best movie” she’s been a part of. She notes that the most challenging role was in The Adjustment Bureau because she had to learn how to dance in that.
JGL said that “This movie was pretty hard” but he thinks he disappears into this role better than he did in any previous roles.
