    The incredible cast also includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the younger Willis, Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Dano and Jeff Daniels.

    We loved Johnson's first two efforts, "Brick," which stars Gordon-Levitt in a present day high-school set noir thriller, and "The Brothers Bloom," which stars Mark Ruffalo and Adrien Brody as a pair of con men who bring in Rachel Weisz for one last job. If you haven't seen them, do so and join us in our giddiness over "Looper."
