2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon’s Addiction

Over the past decade he has been a mainstay at the fest – his burgeoning film career as an indie actor can be cited with these showings: Manic (2001), Rian Johnson’s Brick (2005), Gregg Araki’s Mysterious Skin (2004), (500) Days of Summer (2009), and Hesher (2010). On the creative side, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s short Sparks (Sundance ’09) and his hitRECord project have been unveiled as well. Logically his feature film directorial debut Don Jon’s Addiction should receive a huge Eccles premiere. Gordon-Levitt plays the lead (see set pic above) while Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Brie Larson co-star.

Gist: This is the journey of a contemporary, porn-addicted Don Juan-type (Gordon-Levitt) as he attempts to become less selfish.

Production Co./Producers: Ram Bergman and Voltage Pictures’ Nicolas Chartier

Prediction: Premieres
