Paul Dano is the latest name to be connected with Looper, reports Variety. The actor is said to currently be in talks to star.
The film, the third feature from Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom), is set to star Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt. The early screenplay was described as "really violent and dark" by Johnson during a Brothers Bloom edit bay visit in 2008 and, according to more recent reports, will deal with a group of hitmen who receive their assignments from the future.
Looper is set to begin production in January in Louisiana.
