When Joseph Gordon-Levitt prepares for a role, he really prepares for a role. At this point, you could tell me he traveled to space to research 3rd Rock From The Sun and I’d believe you.

The group that kicked cancer’s ass in 50/50 are re-teaming for to battle an even more depressing topic — New York City holiday crowds. Jonathan Levine will direct Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen from his own script about lifelong friends who have an annual tradition of meeting up in the city on Christmas Eve. The third friend has yet to be cast but you can expect that Rogen will play the wacky one. You can also expect jokes about Santa’s dick. (THR)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt previously shot down rumors of his involvement with Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man, which seemed odd at the time. Turns out, he had his eye on another comic book role. One that will make far less money. JGL has won the role of Dream in Warner Brothers‘ adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman comics. He’ll also step behind the camera, making this his sophomore directing effort.

Adapter of all things comic book, David Goyer, pitched the treatment that Warners are working from but the studio is still looking to bring on a writer to add all of the words and stuff to the script.

As much as I’m excited for Gordon-Levitt and look forward to seeing more of his directorial work, I can’t help but feel for Sean Penn. Dude was robbed. (Deadline)

In a tremendous blow to fans of hyphenate synergies, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has completely and utterly insisted that the announcement by Variety that the Ant-Man lead was down to Paul Rudd and JG-L as “lies.” More specifically, he said that any story of his involvement in the Edgar Wright superhero film was a lie; he didn’t speak for Paul Rudd, because NO ONE speaks for Paul Rudd except Paul Rudd.

And maybe Judd Apatow. Or Leslie Mann if Apatow isn’t around. But NOT JG-L.

Does this mean that Paul Rudd is Ant-Man. I dunno. Maybe? The idea of Edgar Wright directing Paul Rudd in a huge-budget summer movie sounds pretty damn sexy, so let’s hope so.

That’s all the update we got, so let’s just spend the next ten seconds or so imagining Paul Rudd preparing for the role by staring closely at an ant farm, and ruining people’s picnics at Griffith Park to get in the right headspace for the role.

The post Don’t Make Us Choose: Paul Rudd And Joseph Gordon-Levitt Up For ‘Ant-Man’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Just like that old parable from the Bible where a mom is tasked with seeing her baby cut in half, Marvel Studios too has to choose. The studio and Edgar Wright have narrowed their two top choices to play Ant-Man and they’re both pretty likeable guys who never hurt you in anyway. Oof. This one’s going to be tough.

Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are both up for the part, as well as “a remote possibility another actor could emerge” to take the role for less of Marvel’s money. But he’d better be damn likeable.

From the outset, I’ve seen Gordon-Levitt in this role but the idea of Rudd also interests me. Though his alternating sarcasm and mumbling comedy schtick has grown grating in the past five or so years, a cool film like this could be just the jolt he needs to keep it fresh. I’m still on Team JGL but could also be okay with James Franco or Michael Cera in the role. They’ll all be equally hysterical when shrunken down and trapped in some lady’s cleavage. (Variety)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is enjoying rave reviews for his directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction. But it seems that he doesn’t want to spread that joy into the universe. What I mean is, JGL also stars in DJA as a porn-addicted man who starts a relationship with two different women as a means to distant himself from those videos where it looks like the daddy is hurting the mommy. The film also stars Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, and Tupac-homey, Tony Danza.

While speaking to press at the Berlin International Film Fest, Gordon-Levitt revealed he’ll trim down the pornography viewed in the film to secure an R-rating. “I think it is important that those images are in there but what precisely you see isn’t that important. What’s important is the rhythm of the film, the repetition of what the Don Jon character does, over and over.” Before adding, “Porn can get pretty gross.”

Trust him. He grew up in a culture of child actors. He knows the depths that porn can go to. (THR)

If you haven’t seen Looper yet, now’s your chance.

To promote Rian Johnson‘s trippy, futuristic action thriller Looper, the folks at Sony put together this new “mashup” trailer that takes you on a ride through the film’s exciting moments. In the future, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels also star.

Looper is available now on Blu-ray and DVD with 17 deleted scenes on the Blu-ray exclusive, making-of featurettes and feature commentary.

I’m sure it was a tough decision but Joseph Gordon-Levitt made the difficult choice to not star opposite a cartoon raccoon in favor of working with Frank Miller. Last week there was news that he was in the running for the lead in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy but has reportedly turned that down and decided to join Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.

He’ll play Johnny, a new, smooth-talking gambler character created by both Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller for the film adaptation. Originally written for Johnny Depp, there’s no word whether or not the character will be renamed Joseph. It’s safe to say, however, that the character now won’t be expected to wear anything silly on his head. (THR)

We’ve spent all this time wondering if he’ll play Batman but nobody stopped to consider his role in upcoming Marvel movies. Deadline is reporting that The Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt had been added to the list Marvel Studios is considering to play the lead role of Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Born to a human mother and an alien father, Star-Lord is an expert in close quarter combat, various human and alien firearms including his own Element Gun, which is a special pistol that fires projectiles made up of each of the four elements. He also wears a suit that grants augmented strength and durability and the ability to travel through space. Gordon-Levitt joins a few other actors up for the part. They include Joel Edgerton, Lee Pace, Zachary Levi, Jim Sturgess and Eddie Redmayne.

It’s unknown how serious his link to this film is, but now that I think about it, he’d be awesome as Ant-Man. They wouldn’t even need to shrink him that much.

Rian Johnson‘s latest film is a high concept science fiction action film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an assassin who murders marks from the future. Until one day, the man (played by Bruce Willis) beamed back to him for disposal turns out to be his older self.

This new trailer reveals more of the plot as well as the loggerheads that the present and future individuals find themselves at. It also reveals more of what the Bruce Willification of Gordon-Levitt’s face looks like. It’s. Just. Plain. Weird. I’d never thought that the offspring of those two would look like some kind of Billy Zane monster. Then again, this is a work of science fiction.

If you’re looking for a fun date, the movies are always a good bet. But there are pitfalls to avoid. For instance, if you’re trying to impress, it’s likely you’ll want the home turf advantage. That means you only go to restaurants you know. The same should apply to movies.

I’m not saying that you should go see a movie that you’ve already viewed (though it is a good idea), but there are certain terrible date films you should avoid. First of all, you don’t want anything about ruined lives break ups, or spousal abuse. Those films are for legally-separated people.

At any rate, here are seven films to avoid on your next movie date.

(500) Days of Summer

Don’t allow yourself to be sucked in by this one. Yes. It has Zooey Deschanel. Yes. It has Joseph Gordon Levitt. Yes. It has quirky animated interludes. But it also shows a pretty dreadful portrayal of a relationship going to shit. Personally, I blame IKEA. There’s no way to get out of there without a fight.

Antichrist

Fellas, nothing is going to light her fire more than a film featuring a couple grief-stricken over the death of their child. Throw in some intense hallucinations and genital mutilation, and that kitten should be really purring. If that still doesn’t do the trick, go ahead and lean in closely before whispering how director Lars Von Trier sympathizes with Nazis.

We’ve seen thrillers where characters are trapped in phone booths and on cellular phones. Now, it’s come to this — a thriller that happens almost entirely on a bicycle. Joseph Gordon-Levitt races through the streets of New York as a bike messenger trying to avoid crooked cops in Premium Rush. Written and directed by David Koepp, it looks like a fun take on action movies. Boardwalk Empire‘s Michael Shannon also stars along with Dania Ramirez, Jamie Chung, and Aasif Mandvi. You might remember that Mandvi also played that pizza guy who fired Peter Parker from his delivery job in the beginning of Spider-Man 2. Good to see he’s still working dispatch.

6 photosBryce Dallas Howard

This morning we have a new trailer for Will Reiser’s autobiographical 50/50 that focuses more on the comedic and less on the film’s bummerific aspects. This shorter look leans more heavily on Seth Rogen to make light of Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s cancer like any good friend would. Though as evidenced here, using cancer to pick up chicks isn’t as foolproof as it sounds. It’s cancer. Not a puppy.

50/50 opens in theaters on September 30th and also stars Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Phillip Baker Hall, and Angelica Houston.

When Steven Spielberg says “jump,” all of Hollywood says, “okay.”

Wait. I screwed it up. Nevermind. The big takeaway from that idiom was that Spielberg, despite a lower profile in recent years, can still command quite a turnout. Take, for instance, his current project, Lincoln, about the 16th president of the United States.

After scoring Sally Field and Daniel Day-Lewis, what does Spielberg do for an encore?

He gets Joseph Gordon-Levitt (the thinking man’s Shia LaBeouf). And Tommy Lee Jones. And Hal “The Hammer” Holbrook. And then, once he’s found his groove, he calls up James Spader. And then he hands the Spader call off to his assistant so he can speak with John Hawkes. Cause everyone knows it’s not a period piece in the south until The Hawk is on board.

(Due to schedule constraints, I’ll just list the other actors cast in Lincoln.)

They are: Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Joseph Cross, David Constabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong and David Warshofsky.

All these actors are listed as “in negotiations,” so there might be a few additions or subtractions, but it’s Spielberg. You don’t say no to the guy that directed Amistad. You just don’t. (Variety)

The real Cobra Commander wouldn’t walk away from a fight with the Joes, unless he was about to lose. However, we’re not talking about the awesomely-faceless cartoon character. In the awful GI Joe movie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt starred as the scratchy-voiced villain. Since then, Levitt has become a hot commodity with Inception and a much discussed by geeks role in the upcoming Dark Knight Rises. Meanwhile, GI Joe 2 got a director in Justin Bieber: Never Say Never director Jon M. Chu. So, I think we can see where this is headed: Levitt signed on for GI Joe 2, four additional sequels and a TV show… but you know… not that.

Levitt confirmed in a recent interview he won’t be screaming “retreeeeeat” anytime soon, and won’t be back for GI Joe 2 to reprise his key role. Many of the characters in the first one aren’t coming back: only Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes and Duke. However, the movie has reportedly been subtitled Cobra Strikes. Does this mean another actor will step in for Levitt? If only we knew, because knowing is 45-55% of the battle. (Collider)

T.J. Forney (Devin Brochu) is a kid living with his depressed dad Paul (Rainn Wilson) and grandmother Madeline (Piper Laurie). One day he runs into Hesher (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) squatting in a model home, so Hesher comes to stay with the Forneys instead.

Hesher is immediately a volatile character. His entrance is totally silent and you know exactly who he is from his look, his walk and his attitude before he even says one line. He’s not the charming “real world” mentor. He’s the real real-world crashing into T.J.’s life.

The story is about forcing T.J. to deal with an adult world. Hesher won’t stop a bully from beating T.J. up, but he’ll vandalize the bully’s car and leave T.J. hanging at the crime scene. Hesher stands up for T.J.’s friend Nicole (Natalie Portman) when she rear ends a mean driver, but she’s actually in the wrong. I don’t think the film tries to give Hesher a moral code and that’s why it works. It’s just there for T.J. to deal with.

But it gets harder Paul drags T.J. along to a support group where he has to hear really serious mourners talk about their dead daughter. That’s way too intense for a kid, but that’s reality. The film never coddles T.J. Adults won’t help him. He’s in mortal danger with major fire and explosive stunts. Hesher encourages T.J. to spend more time with his grandma, in the most vulgar way possible.

The great part about the movie is that writer/director Spencer Susser never explains where Hesher came from. He’s just there to be part of the Forney’s life and be mysterious. They do explain what happened to T.J.’s mom/Paul’s wife but it’s effective as backstory flashbacks go.

Susser never glorifies Hesher either. He only documents him. That’s why it’s fun to see this totally destructive character. It’s not some smug statement about shaking up social rules. It’s just guys like Hesher exist and right or wrong, you’ve got to face them. Of course, to watch Gordon-Levitt give a Nicolas Cage-worthy performance is worth watching the movie on its own.

Gordon-Levitt, Cotillard Confirmed For ‘Dark Knight Rises’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/we-finally-know-who-joseph-gordon-levitt-and-marion-cotillard-are-in-dark-knight-rises/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/we-finally-know-who-joseph-gordon-levitt-and-marion-cotillard-are-in-dark-knight-rises/#comments Tue, 19 Apr 2011 18:03:53 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=207735 Now we know!

Ever since the announcements that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard (both of Christopher Nolan‘s Inception) were going to be in The Dark Knight Rises, there’s been a frenzy of speculation over who they’re going to play. It turns out the official announcement is kind of anti-climax – they’re both playing characters you’ve probably never heard of:

“Gordon-Levitt will play John Blake, a Gotham City cop. Cotillard will play Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member who wants to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors.”

Now we know! As far as I (and Wikipedia) know, these are not characters from any Batman comics, but instead are original creations for the movie. Kind of strange that they don’t even share a name with any major comics characters, but I guess that’s The Nolan Touch at work.

I don’t even know what to say about this. It’s the first official trailer for Hesher, not that knock-off that completely misrepresented the movie according to star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And it definitely seems intriguing, to say the least. In today’s world of giving away whether Tom Hanks escapes the island in the trailer for Cast Away, it’s cool to see a trailer that doesn’t show you the whole movie in three minutes. Or maybe the whole movie is like this. That would be pretty cool too.

Anyway, this trailer has definitely done its job, because I’m very interested in seeing this, now. If you don’t feel the same way after watching, I don’t know what to say to you.

Welp, looks like we’re going back to no knowing which goofy Batman villain Joseph Gordon-Levitt will reinvent and make terrifying in The Dark Knight Rises. Yesterday’s reports that he’ll play Alberto Falcone aka the Holiday Killer are now being protested as false.

Which means we can continue to speculate about this and argue with our friends when our wives and girlfriends aren’t around. It also means there remains a good chance he may play a young butler competing for Alfred’s job with unorthodox and unethical butling. I’ll be really let down if there isn’t a twenty-minute Butler Olympics sequence randomly jammed in the movie. It would still be better for the flow of the plot than The Dark Knight‘s side-trip to Shanghai. (EW)

Ever since it was announced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was cast in Christopher Nolan‘s sequel to The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, the internet (and presumably some real people as well) has been abuzz about which Batman character he would play. Bad guy The Riddler? Sidekick Robin? A new, unpolished butler to who wants Alfred’s job and isn’t afraid to use unethical butling to get it? Well, it turns out he’s playing someone a little less well-known: Alberto Falcone, son of Carmine Falcone of the Falcone crime family. This character most famously appears in the (great) Batman story “The Long Halloween,” and if you don’t want to see spoilers for the comic, you should skip the next paragraph.

In “The Long Halloween,” Alberto is revealed to be Holiday, the serial killer who murders someone on holidays (as simple but elegant as any serial killer gimmick). This is leading many to speculate that The Dark Knight Rises would be a loose adaptation of “The Long Halloween” (much in the same way that Batman Begins was a loose adaptation of “Batman Year One“), or at least would feature the Holiday serial killer. I gotta say, if that’s the direction Nolan is headed, I’m even more excited for this movie. Because “The Long Halloween” is really cool.

Anyway, Warner Bros has not commented on this news yet, but Variety is reporting it, so I guess that means it’s happening. I fully expect Gordon-Levitt to knock this out of the park, even though it’s not as showy a role as Heath Ledger‘s in The Dark Knight. (/Film)

Confirmed: Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be in director Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises. Uncomfirmed: his part in the goddamn movie. Argh.

Today we got word that Gordon-Levitt has signed the Bat Contract with Warner Bros. and will enter Gotham city limits. However, we’re still left with the unsolved mystery of what costume the “3rd Rock” star will be rocking. Perhaps green spandex with question marks on them? A garish yellow, green and red ensemble? Some crazy looking metal stuff to play a dude named Deadshot?

I think it’d be funny if, after all the internet speculation, it turns out that he’s just playing a street vendor in a quick cameo. Hey, Batman likes the occasional chili dog.

Meanwhile, Juno Temple (Atonement) superfans will also be happy to know that she’s in negotiations to play a “street-smart Gotham girl.” To make that juicier, let’s all spread the rumor that she’s actually playing Harley Quinn. (Variety)

The upcoming indie drama/comedy/whatever starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rainn Wilson, and Natalie Portman is screening at South by Southwest very soon, and we have a new poster to commemorate this momentous occasion. Oh, and it looks weird. “Weird” seems to fit this movie pretty well though, as the promotional materials and this plot synopsis can attest:

“The story centers on a grieving father and son (Wilson and newcomer Devin Brochu) who are helped on their journey by a young grocery clerk (Portman) who inadvertently becomes the object of the boy’s fantasies and the titular, mentoring/tormenting anarchist Hesher (Gordon-Levitt)”

Sounds good, but the movie’s been getting mixed reviews, with many viewers being thrown by the fact that rather than being a straight-up comedy, it’s “a twisted tale with dark comic elements.” “Twisted”? “Dark comic elements”? Cower in fear, middle America! (via The Playlist)

Someone from "way back."

The post Will Nolan Cram Yet Another Villain Into ‘Dark Knight Rises’? appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Superhero movies are like Thanksgiving turkeys. They won’t taste good unless you stuff duck, chicken, pork, ostrich and some hippo skin in there. In this analogy, the extra meats are villains, because as we learned from Spider-Man 3 and Batman and Robin, the more evil doers, the better. Or to put it in non-sarcastic terms, the opposite of what I just said.

At the premiere for Red Riding Hood, Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon) hinted at the possibility of there being another villain in Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises. With Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy) already confirmed, that’d be a whole lot more sinisterness in ol’ Gotham.

“If I told you who the villain was, they’d kill me,” said [Oldman] cautiously when pressed for details by E!. “I think it’s a villain from one of the old, old, from way back from the old comics … It is a Batman villian… It’s not going to be the Joker.”

You might think he was accidentally talking about Catwoman, except Oldman then discusses Hathaway later in the interview, saying she “will probably wear the cat suit pretty well.” So he must know that she’s been announced already. He. Must. Know. And that announcement went hand-in-hand with Bane.

So, Bat Detectives, who is this mystery crook the Commissioner’s alluding to? Perhaps it’s a character Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play, since he’s been cast, but his role remains a mystery. Crazy Professor Hugo Strange? He’s a little young for the role, but it’s a possibility. The Riddler? Nolan said there’d be no Riddler in this one, so that answer likely won’t solve this riddle. One hint: Nolan also said he’d like to give Bruce Wayne‘s story closure in this final installment.

Holy Cryptic Actor Statements, Batman. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. (ScreenRant)

Looper is the upcoming sci-fi film from director Rian Johnson, who helmed the indie film Brick for under $500,000. Some on-set photos give us a sneak peak at what cars will look like in the future, and they look like Budget Rent-A-Future-Cars. They don’t appear to have any of the future car extras I love, like hovering, crazy chrome exterior or laser cannons. They look like what cars will probably actually look like in the future, which to me is frustrating/boring/sad. A mix of emotions.

However, I’ve still got high hopes for Looper. The cast includes Bruce Willis, Paul Dano and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the plot is about future criminals who send their victims back in time to be killed. Hopefully, the future criminals are either hovering or have lasers. (ComingSoon, More Photos At OnLocationVacations)

People everywhere are wondering, often out loud during the day and everything, what Christopher Nolan’s sequel to The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, is going to be like. Some less reputable movie news outlets have capitalized on this excitement by reporting on unsubstantiated rumors regarding casting and whether certain characters will be appearing in the movie or not. Which reminds me, according to Michigan’s WILX:

“They looked at the Ledges as well as a water treatment plant located inside the park. Sources say the area is being considered as a hideout for Batman sidekick Robin.”

“They,” of course, being location scouts for The Dark Knight Rises. This sounds pretty airtight to me, since a well-known part of the Robin mythos is that he lives in a water treatment plant. Is this who Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to be playing? (via Screenrant)

Incoming message from the Big Giant Head: actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to play an as-of-yet-unknown character in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. We don’t know if the talks will pan out, or if this is all part of Ra’s al Ghul’s insidious new scheme. You can see Levitt in this upcoming porno movie (or to be more accurate, “movie about the porno industry,” because otherwise you might think he’s already sunk super low since last summer’s Inception).

Time to speculate on what character he’s gonna play, then be totally wrong about it later. At one time, Levitt was rumored to be playing The Riddler, but the main villains have already been announced as Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy). Some gossipy fanboys in Batman capes suspect Levitt will play evil genius Hugo Strange, an old, lesser-known villain who debuted even before The Joker. That instantly makes him the hipster choice for best Batman adversary ever.

The Dark Knight Rises will Batusi into theaters July 20, 2012. (Deadline via /Film)
