Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon' gets fall release date

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut Don Jon, formerly Don Jon’s Addiction, will be in theaters Oct. 18. Gordon-Levitt (who also wrote the film) stars as a modern day Don Juan from New Jersey who is addicted to porn. The film made a splash at Sundance and was quickly scooped up by Relativity Media for $4 million. Gordon-Levitt stated in February that he would probably have to cut out some of the film’s racier scenes to secure an R-rating. Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza also star.

Don Jon’s Addiction, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut that premiered earlier this year at Sundance, is no more. Or at least the title is no more.

The actor took to his Facebook page Friday to announce that he is shortening the title to Don Jon.

Gordon-Levitt wrote that he’s changing the title firstly because Don Jon is “just so short and simple” and secondly because he felt the former title was creating unwanted misconceptions about the film. Read more of what he told his Facebook fans below: READ FULL STORY

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will edit 'Don Jon's Addiction' to secure R rating

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction, a racy comedy about sex addiction, kicked off its rating-free festival run with Sundance last month. But now the actor-director has to prepare for MPAA to come into the picture — Relativity Media has scooped up the U.S. distribution rights — and that means going back to the cutting room. Gordon-Levitt plans to cut down some of the film’s most graphic sex scenes to secure an R rating, EW confirmed. THR reported the news from the Berlin International Film Festival. READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2013: The deal report

Yes, the Sundance Film Festival is a temple to the glory of independent film and the purity of the art of cinema and blah blah blah. But it is also a vital marketplace for indie distributors to find the next blockbuster Little Miss Sunshine, or acclaimed Beasts of the Southern Wild, or wildly overpriced Happy, Texas. With the festival drawing to a close, Sundance 2013 has already proven to be one of the biggest deal-making festivals in recent memory, producing several major sales of movies that will either go on to become some of the buzziest films of the year, or, you know… not. We’ll update this space with additional deal reports throughout the week ahead. Here are the highlights so far: READ FULL STORY

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon's Addiction' goes for $4 million

Don Jon’s Addiction, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s racy directorial debut that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, was acquired by Relativity Media for $4 million. Gordon-Levitt also stars as Jon Martello, a New Jersey Don Juan whose prolific romantic conquests can’t compete with his obsession for online pornography. Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, and Julianne Moore co-star.

“I always intended this to be a movie for a mass popular audience,” said Gordon-Levitt, in a statement. “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.”

Sundance Film Festival's 13 must-see movies

Awkward.

If there’s one word that unites many of the movies making their debuts at the Sundance Film Festival this year, that’s probably the best: Hilariously, beautifully, tragically awkward.

Imagine you’re a teenage kid in the merciless grip of puberty and your “new dad” turns to you one day and — by way of trying to help you manage your expectations with girls — informed you that, sorry … you’re kind of ugly.

Awkward.
