Moore On for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Pic

As a first-time director, it can sometimes be tough to convince top-flight talent to join your film, especially since you don’t have a track record to point to. But Joseph Gordon-Levitt is having no such issues since A) he’s long since proven himself in other areas of filmmaking and B) he’s already won over Scarlett Johansson. So it’s not shocking to report that Julianne Moore is now in negotiations to co-star in his directorial debut.

Gordon-Levitt doesn’t have a confirmed title for the film yet, and the plot is mostly still being kept quiet. But we do know he’ll be starring as well as directing, playing a modern day Don Juan who starts to revaluate his life and decides he needs to become a less selfish person. Moore is circling the role of an unlikely mentor who helps him with his quest.

The newly minted actor-director also wrote the script and has secured financing for the movie from Hurt Locker producer Nicholas Chartier. He’s looking to kick off shooting next month.

Moore, meanwhile, was last seen in Crazy, Stupid, Love alongside Steve Carell and has been winning healthy reviews for her performance as Sarah Palin in HBO TV movie Game Change. She’s currently at work on fantasy adventure The Seventh Son.
