Rian Johnson works with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Dano in 'Looper'
When I found out Emily Blunts character's name in 'Looper' was Sara, was it fair to wonder if that was a nod to 'Terminator'?
You know what's funny, it was a few weeks into shooting that, this is going to sound ridiculous, that I realized, "Oh, shit, yeah, Sarah Connor. [Bleep]." Actually, I think I might have changed it if I had realized earlier because it seems like such a big, obvious nod to it. But I don't know, very different characters, so hopefully people will let it slide or take it as a good thing. We do owe quite a lot to the first "Terminator" in terms of how we use time travel.-- Matt Pais
