Comic-Con: 'Looper' puts time spin on mob hits
Comic-Con: Time-travel thriller 'Looper' turns back clock on mob hits
By The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO (AP) The big time-travel paradox of the sci-fi thriller "Looper" is whether Joseph Gordon-Levitt is playing a young Bruce Willis or whether Bruce Willis is playing an old Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Gordon-Levitt, co-star Emily Blunt and writer-director Rian Johnson gave the Comic-Con fan convention Friday a sneak peek at footage from "Looper," which centers on a hit man who's supposed to kill his future self.

To play the young assassin, Gordon-Levitt spent three hours in makeup every day to have a nose prosthetic and other cosmetic tweaks applied to make him look more like Willis.

But much of the transformation comes from Gordon-Levitt's mimicking skills. He says he watched Willis' movies over and over and listened to the actor's dialogue again and again on an iPod.

The movie opens Sept. 28.
