Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the most talented young actors working in Hollywood right now. He recently starred in Christopher Nolan's Inception, and he did an incredible job in that film. Now we have our first look at him his next film called Premium Rush, which is currently shooting in New York City and being directed by David Koepp.
The film is a chase thriller where Gordon-Levitt plays a New York bike messenger who picks up an envelope at Columbia University, only to be chased throughout the city by a dirty cop desperate to get his hands on it. Apparently these action chase sequences are going to be insanely awesome. The villain in the film will be played by Michael Shannon (The Runaways/Jonah Hex).
