Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Julianne Moore went for a walk in New York yesterday. Apparently he’s directing her in a new movie. Scarlett Johansson will also star. JGL worked on the script, a romantic comedy about a player who is trying to commit:

"I wrote myself a helluva role, one that people wouldn’t (have) necessarily thought of me for."

Well he sounds confident, doesn’t he? Yes, actually, he says he is:

"I spent a year working with Chris 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."

For some reason this reminds me of the Boy Sh-t he got into with Michael Cera a few years ago at Sundance. Click here if you missed that. The ones with dimples can be super precious too, you know.

In other JGL news, the final trailer for The Dark Knight Rises was released online yesterday and JGL features heavily. The trailer will precede The Avengers this weekend. In signature Christopher Nolan style, the preview is brilliant and bold, but bleak (sorry about the alliteration), and I am already afraid to see it because that’s the genius of Christopher Nolan - it’s never just a summer popcorn movie; it’s an unforgiving analysis of life which... is obviously never comfortable.
