Julianne Moore Joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Directorial Debut
Last month it was reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is currently preparing to make his directorial debut with an untitled project in which he plays a modern day Don Juan on the road to be less of a "selfish dick." The story came with news that he had already cast Scarlett Johansson, but was still looking for his other female lead. It would appear that he's found her.
According to Variety, Julianne Moore is now in talks to join Gordon-Levitt's newest project. Should she sign on, Moore will play a "unlikely mentor" to the main character. The actress is just coming off getting rave reviews for her turn in the HBO film Game Change, in which she played vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and she recently completed production on The English Teacher, a new dramedy from director Craig Zisk, as well as Scott McGehee and David Siegel's What Masie Knew, which is based on the book by Henry James and co-stars Alexander Skarsgard and Steve Coogan. Most recently Moore began work on The Seventh Son, the adaptation of the fantasy novel by Joseph Delaney in which she plays Mother Malkin.
Anyone who has followed Joseph Gordon-Levitt's career over the last few years knows what a true talent he is, so it's no surprise that he has already enlisted two top actors for his first trip behind the camera. If his skills as a writer and director are comparable to his abilities as an actor then you can be sure that they won't be the last either.
