London, Oct 5 : Emily Blunt has been roped in to star opposite Bruce Willis in a sci-fi thriller “Looper”.
The film, which also stars actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is a time-travelling adventure that follows the lives of a group of killers, who dispose of people sent from the future, so they can be disposed of without anyone realising who they are.
Emily will be seen playing a single mother.
However, difficulties arise when Joseph’s alter-ego works out that his latest victim is a future version of himself, and decides to let the man – played by Bruce – escape.
His future self is then forced to track down and kill a young boy, who will be the character’s key to survival.
Producer Rian Johnson plans to begin shooting the complicated sci-fi drama in New Orleans in January next year, with Emily set to play the single mother of the young boy with the key to survival, reports contactmusic.com.
“Looper” is expected to hit the screens by 2012.
