Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has landed Scarlett Johansson to star in an untitled comedy project which will serve as his directorial debut. Voltage Pictures will finance the project, and will sell international rights at the Berlin Film Festival.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt will also star in the comedy as a egotistical womanizer, who goes on a quest to be less of a, "selfish dick." It isn't known what role Scarlett Johansson will play, and it is said there is another female lead role yet to be cast. Joseph Gordon-Levitt wrote the original screenplay he will direct from. Here's what Joseph Gordon-Levitt had to say about making his directorial debut.
"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 Christopher 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."
