It has been announced recently that Emily has joined the cast of Rian Johnson’s time-travel film, Looper.
Coming Soon – Blunt, who next appears in Gulliver’s Travels and The Adjustment Bureau, will act alongside Bruce Willis (who starred in the time travel story 12 Monkeys) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who starred in Johnson’s first film, Brick).
The early screenplay was described as “really violent and dark” by Johnson during a Brothers Bloom edit bay visit in 2008 and, according to more recent reports, will deal with a group of hitmen who receive their assignments from the future. Blunt is said to play a single mother whose son becomes a target.
Looper is set to begin production in January in Louisiana.
