Joseph Gordon-Levitt wants to be a jack of all trades!
JGL will write, star and make his directorial debut in his as-of-yet untitled project, starring opposite ScarJo.
The film will have JGL as a sexxay, modern-day Don Juan who tries to be, in his words, "less of a dick."
Sounds easy enough…HA!
The actor called it quits from acting at 19 and has returned in full force. He states his real motivation to return to film was the chance to direct.
JGL states the following about his passion for directing:
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.
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.
In his project, there is another female lead that is yet to be determined. We wonder who he will pick.
This new project sounds uhMAZing and we can't wait to see it in the future!
