Joseph Gordon-Levitt's feature directorial debut "Don Jon" (formerly "Don Jon's Addiction") has set a release date of October 18th, according to the latest report from Rentrak. Acquired by Relativity out of the Sundance Film Festival (where it received generally positive reviews, including this one), the film had originally been slated for to-be-determined summer release date.

"Don Jon" follows the titular character (played by Gordon-Levitt himself), a thirty-ish guy whose only interests are the gym, his car and sex (both in real life and even more so via internet porn).
