As predicted, Inception star Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis (of Pulp Fiction, The Sixth Sense, Armageddon—need we go on?) will be in town for the Toronto International Film Festival to support their sci-fi/action thriller Looper, which is set to kick off the festival. In the film, Willis plays the future version of Gordon-Levitt’s assassin character and is sent back in time to be killed by his younger self (cue endless time paradoxes and Reddit threads). Watch for a Mr. and Mrs. Smith–style battle of the assassins, and to see how the two totally different-looking men pull off playing the same character. With any luck, they’ll arrive in Toronto wearing matching outfits.
