Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Make Directorial Debut With Sexy Comedy

Scarlett Johansson will co-star with the actor, who also wrote the screenplay.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is turning into a triple threat, venturing into big-screen writing and directing.

Gordon-Levitt will make his feature directorial debut with an untitled comedy based on a script he also wrote. He will star in the movie, with Scarlett Johansson playing one of the two major female roles.

Plotlines are not being revealed other than it centers on “a modern day Don Juan and his journey to become less of a selfish dick,” according to Gordon-Levitt’s publicist.

Financing is coming from Voltage Pictures, which is selling international rights in Berlin. Ram Bergman will produce for Ram Bergman Productions in association with hitRECord Films.

Production is set to start in Los Angeles on April 16.
