Everybody loves Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but now you get another chance to love his directorial debut, Don Jon (formerly known as Don Jon's Addiction.

The film now has an official release date of Oct. 18, 2013.

Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper) and co-star Tony Danza were in town during March's South by Southwest Film Festival, but their project had already seen much success by that point, having premiered in January at Sundance (where it was almost immediately snatched up by distributor Relativity Media).

For now, we'll just share this photo we took during our sit-down with the two at SXSW, but look for more from JGL and Danza closer to October.
