Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is well into the production process by this point, but details on casting and plot are continuing to emerge.

Movie fans have long known that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a great actor. With Don Jon’s Addiction, the world will now see that he’s a talented writer and director too.
The film, his feature debut, focuses on a New Jersey-based ladies man who is hopelessly addicted to online pornography. A heavy and potentially uncomfortable topic for sure, but Gordon-Levitt handles it with an honesty and energy that makes it fun as well as easily digestible. The supporting cast, including Scarlett Johansson as a New Jersey princess-type, Tony Danza, Julianne Moore and Glenne Headly, only helps a film about objectification and media consumption feel so effortless and entertaining.
Don Jon’s Addiction is a high end Hollywood comedy masquerading as a Sundance film. Read the rest of my review, and watch a video blog featuring Peter Sciretta and Russ Fischer, below. Read More »

It seems no one in Hollywood can make a big-budget movie these days without sitting down with Joseph Gordon-Levitt at some point or other. In the past few months, he’s been rumored for Warner Bros.’ Justice League and tested for Guardians of the Galaxy. Just hours ago, we learned he’d actually been offered (and turned down) Gareth Edward’s Godzilla. Now Dimension Films has announced that he’s signed on for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s long-awaited comic book sequel. More details after the jump.

Despite a quick and unequivocal denial from the actor’s reps, the rumor that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is playing Batman in Man of Steel just isn’t going away. Now, coyly adding fuel to the fire is The Dark Knight Rises director and Man of Steel producer Christopher Nolan. While the filmmaker hasn’t confirmed Gordon-Levitt’s involvement in the new picture (he’d know better, even if it were true), he not denying it, either. More after the jump.

(Spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises follow.)
When a recent rumor cropped up that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had been tapped to play the new Batman in Justice League, it seemed like a logical narrative extension of The Dark Knight Rises. The end of the film set up Gordon-Levitt’s John Blake as a successor to Bruce Wayne, so it only made sense that the character would carry over into Warner Bros.’ efforts at a DC cinematic universe.
However, Nolan says that was never really his intention — that he left the door open on his way out of Gotham for thematic reasons, not for studio franchise purposes. In a thoughtful new interview, Nolan discussed why, exactly, The Dark Knight Rises ended as it did and what the Batman meant to him. Hit the jump to read on.
