Make a movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

Wanna make a movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt? All you need is a computer and a great idea.

With hitRECord, Gordon-Levitt’s ever-evolving collaborative production company, you don’t have to start in the mail room or cut your teeth as a personal assistant. You just have to create a profile on the totally free website hitRECord.org and start submitting your ideas, whether it’s a poem, a film, a piece of music or a drawing. Nearly all forms of art are fair game. You don’t even have to be the most popular user to catch the attention of Gordon-Levitt and his small core staff. You just have to be one of the best, which is actually a fairly big hurdle.

“I think the most important thing about anything that we make at hitRECord is ‘Is it good?'” hitRECord producer Jared Geller told EW. “At the end of the day, if the piece isn’t effective or entertaining, then it kind of doesn’t matter how it’s made. It becomes a gimmick. The method can’t be the most interesting thing about what you’re making. The piece itself has to be great.”

Check out the animated short below for an example of one of hitRECord’s most popular collaborations, and walk through the steps of how Gordon-Levitt helped turn the original poem into a Sundance Film Festival-worthy animated short, all through crowd-sourced creativity.

Hotness alert! Steamy kisses between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson in new 'Don Jon' trailer

don-jon.jpg

Viewers probably already knew from the first trailer that Don Jon — the Sundance fave about a porn-obsessed lothario and a rom-com-loving lady, written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt — was going to be steamy.

But this new trailer, premiering last night during the VMAs, ups the heat index. The entire 33-second spot is Jon (Gordon-Levitt) seductively kissing Johansson’s character, Barbara, all while she’s attempting to firm up some longer-term relationship plans. “I want to meet your friends,” she purrs. “I want to meet your family.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon' gets a head-turning new poster -- EXCLUSIVE

Don-Jon.jpg

Whenever characters in comedic movies or TV shows end up looking at porn they always do that “head-tilt” trope, which suggests whatever they’re seeing (and the audience isn’t) is so twisted they’re having a hard time telling up from down.

The new poster for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon very subtly tricks the viewer into doing the same, at least if you want to get a good look at the seductive looks Julianne Moore and Scarlett Johansson are giving off.

Coincidence? Probably. But it’s also appropriate given this film’s twisted take on love and sex.

Happy Father's Day? Tony Danza drools over Scarlett Johansson in 'Don Jon' clip -- VIDEO

In the upcoming movie Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s title character seems to have a very open relationship with his old man, played by Tony Danza, and this special Father’s Day clip makes that pretty clear.

When Don Jon first brings Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) home to meet mom and dad, Danza’s Jon Sr. immediately goes into cartoon-wolf mode, barely keeping his eyeballs in their sockets. The Father of the Year contender even asks his son “Are they real?” after getting an eyeful of Johansson’s physique.

Watch the NSFW (but still family-oriented) clip below:

'Don Jon' trailer: Love, porn, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- VIDEO

What do you care about most in life? In Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Martello (Gordon-Levitt) leads a simple existence. He’s got his own hierarchy of needs: “My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, and my porn.” And it seems to be working out pretty well for Don, until he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) — the bombshell of his dreams with a Jersey accent to match.

The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival under the title Don Jon’s Addiction where EW described it as “an improbably entertaining and kind-hearted comedy about a specimen of New Jersey manhood.” Take a look at the first trailer for the film after the jump. It has a clubby, manic, fast-paced vibe that draws the viewer in, before slowing down and hitting the punchline — that porn may be a deal breaker for the romantic comedy-obsessed Barbara. Tony Danza and Julianne Moore co-star in the comedy, which even features a fake movie-within-the-movie starring Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway.

Fox acquires the rights to 'Guys and Dolls' -- will Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star?

Are Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt the next Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando?

The answer? Maybe. EW has confirmed that 20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Guys and Dolls, the Frank Loesser musical about two gamblers who make a bet about a girl. But as far as Tatum and Gordon-Levitt are concerned, Deadline reports that Fox is interested in casting the actors in a remake of the 1955 film.

All we know is that Gordon-Levitt can sing, Tatum can dance, and both would look really good in fedoras. Bottom line: If luck were a lady, she would choose these two actors in a heartbeat.

Who would you like to see cast in a potential Guys and Dolls remake?

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
