Production Weekly is reporting that star Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada, The Young Victoria) is in talks to join the latest film from Brick and The Brothers Bloom director Rian Johnson. No other details are given, but Looper starts production this January.

Willis recently said Looper was “really dark” and compared it to 12 Monkeys.
