New interview and new film: Looper

There is a new interview with Garret at today. Most of it is about Raising Hope, but he also sheds some light on his new project, among other things.

The new film, Looper, is a sci-fi thriller in which – wait for it – people from the future use time travel to terminate other people from the future by sending them back to the past where they are greeted by Loopers (killers hired by gangsters from the future) and their cool looking guns. Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt play the same guy at two different points in time and other familiar mugs include Paul Dano, Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, and Jeff Daniels.

Here is what Garret says about the film: You’re growing a beard?
Dillahunt: I am. I’m on my way to New Orleans to do this film called Looper with Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Emily Blunt. I’m very excited and nervous about that. Why nervous?
Dillahunt: Because I’m fans of those guys. It’s a really cool story; it’s a sci-fi thing so it’s kind of back in my normal wheel house. Can you tell us more about it?
Dillahunt: It’s set in the future. It involves a lot of time travel and I get to have a cool gun fight with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt. I’m looking forward to it. –
