Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the best young actors in Hollywood today and for some reason isn't getting some of the best parts. Wouldn't you love to see this guy in a superhero movie? JGL will get his chance at the mainstream though with an upcoming lead in the romantic comedy THE FROG KING. The movie will mark the feature directorial debut of "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star who will work from a script written by Bret Easton Ellis ("American Psycho"). Wait. A romantic comedy written by the guy who wrote "American Psycho"?! You got it. Just based on that alone, I think I need to see this. Gordon-Levitt will play an self-centered editor who meets the girl of his dreams but can't stop himself from screwing it up. The film is based on the debut novel of the same name from Adam Davies. Upcoming for Gordon-Levitt is the Iraq war drama STOP-LOSS as well as the languishing thriller KILLSHOT. No word yet on when filming on FROG KING is set to begin.

Extra Tidbit: Internet rumors are already wondering whether Gordon-Levitt could be the new Spider-Man.

Bret Easton Ellis doing a romantic comedy? Call me hooked. In fact, call me "Guy Who Just Pissed Himself from Disbelief While Simultaneously Going into a Happiness Seizure".

I'm not in favor of Levitt going all Hollywood Blockbuster on us, at least not like that. It's like suddenly every young actor is in a super hero movie. What happened to the days where they all did romantic comedies and horror movies? (actually, I think he's done that, too) Anyway, right now he seems to be enjoying being the prince of the indie scene, which is in itself pretty impressive I think.
