Don Jon's Addiction

Scarlett Johansson: She can currently be seen as glamorous movie star Janet Leigh in Hitchcock, but, as shown in the new photo above, Scarlett Johansson apparently will be deglammed (yet still lovely) opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Don Jon’s Addiction. As you might have guessed from the title, Gordon-Levitt will play a ladies’ man who attempts to change his ways. The movie, which is also Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. [The Playlist]

The Monuments Men: Looking to continue a collaboration that began with Ocean’s Eleven in 2001, Matt Damon is in talks to join the cast of George Clooney’s The Monuments Men. The period drama follows a group of art historians and museum curators who seek to recover cultural treasures stolen by the Nazis during World War II. The cast already includes Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and John Goodman. [Deadline]

Channing Tatum: Now 32 years of age, Channing Tatum has decided to take a break from acting. He has four movies due out next year (drug thriller Side Effects, presidential thriller White House Down, drama Foxcatcher and action flick G.I. Joe: Retaliation) but really wants to focus his energies on finding a project that he can direct. He already has a couple of films in development (Magic Mike 2; an Evel Knievel biopic) and has more ideas up his sleeve. [EW.com]

Broken City Clip: Sparks quietly fly when the mayor of New York City (Russell Crowe) sits down with a private eye (Mark Wahlberg) to explain why he hired him to investigate his wife in a new clip from Broken City. Catherine Zeta-Jones also stars; the movie opens on January 18. [Yahoo! Movies]
