Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Starring in 500 Days of Summer Together
Two of my favorite actors joining a romantic comedy together - what a joyous occasion! Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will star together in an upcoming independent movie titled 500 Days of Summer for Fox Searchlight. Not much has been revealed yet: the story centers on Gordon-Levitt who falls hopelessly in love with Deschanel, a girl who doesn't believe in love. Music video director Marc Webb is making his feature film debut with a screenplay by newcomers Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber (who's only other work was on the upcoming Pink Panther 2). Shooting starts next Tuesday in Los Angeles and I'll be sure to keep my eye on this.
While there's not much to go on for the story yet, I'm intersted so far purely in Deschanel and Gordon-Levitt. I first fell in love with Zooey Deschanel in Elf, but she really became one of my favorite actresses in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as well as two yet-unreleased Sundance gems: The Good Life and The Go-Getter. Since then everything else I've seen her in she has been wonderful and I'm always on a look out for her latest work. Joseph Gordon-Levitt really blew me away in Brick and impressed me in The Lookout. I'm looking forward to his performance in G.I. Joe as Cobra Commander, too. With these two both starring, this definitely is a film to follow.
