Hollywood superstar Joseph Gordon-Levitt seems to have been in the entertainment industry forever, having started at such a young age and being a hit on TV as well as on the big screen. Now, Joseph is really coming into his own as an actor and is considered as one of the best in the business right now.
However, instead of focussing on his acting career and chasing his next big pay day, Joseph Gordon-Levitt decided to take a little time to write and direct his very own movie. Don't get too upset though, you won't miss him from the big screen, as he also stars in his directorial debut.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt wrote and directed the movie Don Jon's Addiction, which recently featured at the Sundance Film Festival and has proved a success. Now, it has been confirmed that Don Jon's Addiction has been acquired for $4m by Relativity Media.
Joseph explained, "I always intended this to be a movie for a mass popular audience. Everyone told me it was a long shot. Now Relativity is making it happen. Tucker Tooley and Robbie Brenner told me they believe that, more than anything, audiences want something unique. I couldn’t agree with them more. I admire them for putting their money where their mouth is. And I couldn’t possibly be more grateful."
Don Jon's Addiction also stars Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, and Julianne Moore.
