Scarlett Johansson has said she would love to star in an action movie full of stunts.

The 24-year-old actress – who has had some action scenes in The Island and The Spirit – is tipped for the lead roll in new movie The Amazon Warrior, set in 200 BC.

Scarlett told the Daily Telegraph: “I think I’m supposed to be a gladiatrix. These film guys are crazy about gladiatrixes. But do I fit into the Amazon mould? I’m a Danish/Jewish girl from New York. I’ve done weapons training. I’ve fired all kinds of guns: 9mm semi-automatics, machine guns, shotguns. I’ve jumped off a 60ft building. I learnt to ride for The Horse Whisperer. But I’ve never done a full-on action role.

“I guess I’m still waiting for my Cirque du Soleil moment. It would be fun.”

I love Scarlett to death. But I just cannot see how a woman who is 5’4″ tall could play an Amazon Warrior.

Agreed! I’m Iffy on this choice of movie. She should do a western like she wanted. Now i’d watch that!!
