Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Premium Rush with a Looper
Posted by LiveFor on May 4, 2010
According to Heat Vision he is in final negotiations to star in “Premium Rush,” a Columbia chase thriller being directed by David Koepp. The plot follows a New York bike messenger who picks up an envelope at Columbia University, only to be chased throughout the city by a dirty cop desperate to get his hands on it.
He is also down to possibly team up again with Rian Johnson (Brick) to star in the sci-fi film Looper. This one has conflicting descriptions, but both involve time travel. It is either about operatives sent back to the present to assassinate criminals (Gordon-Levitt will play a man sent back to kill himself) or criminals are sent to the future where they are then killed. Either way it sounds cool.
I don’t mind JGL although he does have a few acting tics which can grate on some people. However, looks as if he is on his way to becoming a major player in the movie world.
