In Javi Man-Crush News: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Make His Directorial Debut.

Javi here. As you guys should know, I'm a huge fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He is a young(er) actor that has managed to always have interesting roles, and even while playing in hipster type movies like (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, he brings something great to the performances. He also created hitRECord, an awesome online creative collective where people openly remix and collaborate. Adding to his resume according to Deadline, will be directing his first full-length feature. Hit the jump for more info.

According to the story, this will be a sort of romantic comedy "about a modern-day Don Juan, and his quest to become less of a “selfish dick.” He plays that character, and there is another female lead role that will be filled shortly." That's honestly sounds like a whole lot of comedies we have already seen. How many times can a dude that's selfish/rude/a player/liar/awkward learn the error of his ways after a climactic scene and a quirky music. What's worse is that Hollywood's go-to sultry seductress Scarlett Johansonn is starring as well.

On one hand I'm happy that an already talented fella is going to rock the camera; however, the description of the plot makes it seem really cheesy. I'd definitely like to read the script to see what this movie will be all about. Plus, I'm inclined to forgive any wrong JGL might do. Either way, I'll write a lot about this because I'm excited to see what he can do.
