Joseph Gordon-Levitt to direct Scarlett Johansson in new comedy

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, Inception) will add director to his list of credentials as Deadline reveals details of his first venture behind the camera.

JoGo’s feature directing debut will be an as-yet-untitled comedy he wrote and plans to star in alongside Scarlett Johansson. He’s tight-lipped about the finer plot details at the moment but divulged the film is “a sexy comedy about a modern-day Don Juan and his quest to become less of a ‘selfish dick’”.

Voltage Pictures is financing the film with Gordon-Levitt co-producing under his hitRecord Films banner alongside Ram Bergman Productions. Filming is expected to begin in April and may impact on his ability to appear in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Django Unchained.

Gordon-Levitt’s close friendship with directors Rian Johnson (Brick) and Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises) will surely aid in his directorial debut, as will his experience in founding hitRecord, where he has directed several short films.

Discuss: Excited to see JoGo’s transition from actor to director?

  1. Joseph is a baby-face actor but he’s so cute. His role along with heath ledger in 10 things i hate about you is still in my mind. He’s still charming and a great actor. I wish him best of luck for his directorial debut and future endeavors.
