Joseph Gordon-Levitt is at Sundance this week showing off his writing/directing debut Don Jon’s Addiction, which is said to be a pretty decent flick. What we really want to know about is Gordon-Levitt’s role in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and what’s up with the next Batman film.
Gordon-Levitt on A Dame to Kill For and why he took the part:
“For me, it’s first and foremost about a filmmaker who inspires me. In the last year I have been extremely fortunate. I got to work with Rian Johnson and then Chris Nolan and then Steven Spielberg. The job I just took, Sin City 2, I did it because I just love Robert Rodriguez’s movies. And then after filmmakers, it’s the script. Sin City 2 is just a fun part to play. I have eclectic taste in movies I like to watch.”
He has a lot less to say about Batman:
DEADLINE: The Batfilm film left your character in an intriguing position to take over that franchise. Does that interest you?
GORDON-LEVITT: It’s not up to me. It comes down to the same two criteria I just mentioned.
JGL isn’t saying “no”, but he isn’t saying yes either. Is he saying the part is his as long as he wants it? And him doing another Batman film is contingent upon the script and director?
What do you think?
