It looks like he can’t do everything after all. Although Joseph Gordon-Levitt is appearing in The Dark Knight Rises, Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln and not to mention helming his own directorial debut Don Jon’s Addiction, the actor had to depart the latest film from Quentin Tarantino, MTV reports.
Although it was a bit part, Gordon-Levitt’s busy schedule prevented him from being on the set of the currently shooting western Django Unchained. He simply said, “No, I’m not going to get to do that. I’d love to, but it just doesn’t work.” He went on to say he’s been in contact with Tarantino and that “it was so cool to trust me to do this little part in his movie. I would have loved, loved to have done it. He’s one of my very favorite filmmakers, and he was really supportive of me directing and that meant the world to me.”
No word yet on his replacement, but the film also stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Sacha Baron Cohen. It will hit theaters on December 25th, 2012 while Gordon-Levitt will next be seen in TDKR this July, Premium Rush in August and Rian Johnson’s Looper in September.

After a recent New York screening of František Vláčil‘s Marketa Lazarová, my friend and fellow critic, Vadim Rizov, tweeted the following response: “Sheep God war men snow church blood swords ‘old crone’ justice grass wtf WTF UNCLE.” He certainly wasn’t alone in such a confused response.
