Following Brick with The Brothers Bloom cemented director Rian Johnson’s reputation as a master storyteller.

There were a few dissenting voices who didn’t enjoy the conman capers of Stephen and Bloom but I loved it, and found myself intrigued as word of Johnson’s follow up reached us, and now we’ve got a first look at one of the big names in the cast as the first production still is released.

Looper is a time travel thriller in which victims from the future are sent back in time to be murdered, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt star with the man on show here who is related in some spoilery way to Gordon-Levitt.

This is not the first image we’ve seen from the production as there’s a good looking Tumblr right here which has kept us up to date with some abstract pictures from the film’s shoot and there have also been some intrigiung on set pictures giving a good look at the future Johnson has in store for us.

Here’s the picture of Mr Willis and a big gun.

Empire had it first. Shout your cheers at them.
