Joseph Gordon-Levitt Signs to Two Action Films

Last night I got to post about one of my favorite modern actors, today I get to post about another one. Joseph Gordon-Levitt ( The Lookout, 500 Days of Summer) will star in Premium Rush, a thriller that follows a New York City bike messenger who’s being chased by a dirty cop desperate to get his hands on a package. The script was written by David Koepp (Steven Spielberg’s favorite screenwriter). Koepp will also direct.

We’re not finished yet, though. Gordon-Levitt will also star in Looper, an action-based time travel film. The project will reunite him with writer/director Rian Johnson (Brick). The film takes place in the future when time travel has been perfected. According to The Hollywood Reports, assassins are sent back in time to kill criminals before they commit their crimes. In good M. Night Shyamalan tradition, Gordon-Levitt’s character is sent back in time to kill himself.
