Scarlett talks about The Spirit in issue 149 of Total Film magazine, on sale this Friday. I will be sure to pick up a copy for us. Meanwhile, here’s a preview:
Scarlett Johansson will return to the big screen next month, and this time she’ll be sexier than ever.
The Lost In Translation actress will play the baddie’s sidekick Silken Floss in the film adaptation of comic book The Spirit – a role which director Frank Miller included in the film just for Scarlett.
“Well, she’s a doctor or a nurse, really, but yes, she’s very sexy. Frank really allowed that to develop. Very forward and sexy in a 1940s way,” Scarlett told Empire magazine [Total Film?].
She added that the dialogue, comprising of witty one-liners, made her character even sexier.
“That was so much fun. I mean the dialogue was great. Only Frank could write this stuff… Forget about obscene – it’s worse than that because it’s so clever!”
But Scarlett said her character wasn’t just a bad girl.
“Like a lot of the characters, she’s kind of in a grey area. They’re not really good and they’re not really bad, you know? They’re products of their environment, I think,” she said.
