SCARLETT JOHANSSON Signs On For JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT’s Directing Debut

When Joseph Gordon-Levitt goes to directing his first film, he will have big name actress Scarlett Johansson signed on to play the lead.

Deadline reports that the deal is already in place for the untitled comedy which Gordon-Levitt wrote himself. While many details are still being kept under wraps, he did say that they movie is basically a modern-day Don Juan and a character that works hard to better himself from horrible life he was living.


Gordon-Levitt comes off of acting in films like The Dark Knight Rises, Premium Rush, Looper, and Lincoln, which are all set to open this year. Talking about making the move from acting to directing he said, “I was a child actor for years and quit at 19, went to school awhile, and a big part of why I came back was that I ultimately wanted to make movies.” He added “I spent a year working with Chris Nolan, Rian Johnson, Steven Spielberg, and I did my best to pay attention. I’ve also been making short films for a long time now, I’ve directed a ton of them, and that is a huge part of why I feel comfortable and confident in this.”

The project is being finances by Voltage Pictures with Ram Bergman producing and Gordon-Levitt’s hitRecord Films. GL will be acting along with directing and he says “I wrote myself a helluva role, one that people wouldn’t necessarily thought of me for.” In addition to having this project lined up he is also supposed to play a small part in Django Unchained with Quentin Tarantino.

Shooting for the project is scheduled to start April 16.
