Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Directing Debut 'Don Jon' Gets a Release Date Joseph Gordon-Levitt premiered his writer-director debut, now known as Don Jon (after previously going by Don Jon’s Addiction), earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was quickly picked up by Relativity for a handsome sum of $4 million; now the studio has settled on a fall release date, for Levitt’s satirical skewering of the modern “rom-com mentality” (and society’s attitudes towards proper gender roles in general).

Don Jon Synopsis and Credits

Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to "pull" a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn't compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she's determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Don't let the lower case letterings in his name fool you. He's quick and deadly with the headlines and he's always on target. His delivery could use more work though.
