Shanghai - After travelling to Japan for a dream-reading assignment in Inception
, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has taken on another sci-fi picture that brings him to Asia - the China-set action-thriller Looper
Promoting the movie in the eastern Chinese financial centre of Shanghai on Sunday, the 30-year-old American actor said, "I feel now, doing Looper
, is the result of what happened with Inception
. It is something I have been working for my whole life."
Directed by Rian Johnson, Looper
also co-stars Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Chinese actress Xu Qing.
Xu said on Sunday, "It is like nothing I have seen before. It has action. It has romance. It also deals with philosophy. I really like it."
