Julianne Moore Heads to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Directorial Debut
The charismatic Joseph Gordon-Levitt has worked with some of the biggest names in the business over the past decade. A few years ago, he started his own collaborative production company called hitRECord, where he and a community of users make short films, music videos, and all sorts of cool projects. But Gordon-Levitt is ready for the big leagues now, recently setting Scarlett Johansson to star in his feature directorial debut, which he also wrote and in which he will act. Now another big-name redhead has joined with Julianne Moore, coming off Game Change and a stunning portrayal of Sarah Palin in talks. Read on!
The project is still untitled, but it's being described as a sexy comedy about about a "modern day Don Juan," and his quest to become less of a "selfish dick." We knew that there was one more female lead role to cast, and Variety says Moore has snagged it. Details on the movie are still sketchy at this point so we're not sure who she'll play or how big of a role she'll have, but regardless, I'm really excited about this movie. Gordon-Levitt is one of my favorite working actors today, and I'm stoked to see how his experience working under Rian Johnson, Chris Nolan, Steven Spielberg, and possibly Quentin Tarantino will translate to his work.
