A Slim and Trim Looper Detail

Rian Johnson, director behind a personal favorite Brick, and the upcoming Brothers Bloom, has a sci-fi pic coming up. And this just tickles my fancy. In fact, maybe even tickles a fancy I hadn't fancied before. It's called Looper, and check out this logline: “Looper is set in a present-day world in which a group of hitmen are sent their victims from the future.” And /film updated this story with this quote: "there’s much much MUCH much more to Looper than that logline suggests. In fact, that quick description doesn’t even get to the really interesting hook of the plot, and the plot’s hook isn’t what the movie is really about anyway." So, the logline is first of all awesome. That sounds like such an amazing premise that could go so many different directions, especially with a director like this. And if that's not even the half of it? Count me in. This little snippet has really piqued my interest. Anyone else think this sounds like its got a lot of promise?
