Daniels, Perabo Sign For “Looper”

Jeff Daniels, Piper Perabo and Noah Segan have joined the cast of Rian Johnson’s sci-fi action tale “Looper” for DMG Entertainment and Endgame Entertainment reports Variety.

The story follows a group of killers who send bodies of their victims back in time. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and Xu Qing are already set to star.

Part of the film was to be set in France. This has now been changed to China with the film set in a world “sixty years from now [where] China is the leading super power and time travel has been invented.”

Johnson (“The Brothers Bloom”) is directing from his own script. Shooting kicks off next week in New Orleans.
