The sad news Tuesday of Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds’ divorce conjures a lot of questions, like who gets the New York apartment, the L.A. home, maybe custody of the favorite frozen-yogurt joint. But what about The Whale?

Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson A several-ton orca looms over the Reynolds-Johansson split, in the form of a documentary narrated by Reynolds and executive produced by both actors. The film follows Luna, a killer whale separated from his pod near British Columbia — not far from where Johansson and Reynolds wed in a secret ceremony in September 2008.

“We have no reason to believe that their passion and commitment to this project will waver as a result of any changes in their personal lives,” a producer for the film told the Ministry in an e-mail.

Reynolds, Johannson and other producers are in talks with distributors, aiming for a summer 2011 release.

If the film does see release, the couple would most likely endure promotional duties together. They won’t be the only ones in that situation — in April, exes Courteney Cox and David Arquette will team to hype Wes Craven’s “Scream 4.”

“The Whale” is an updated version of “Saving Luna,” a documentary about the same whale that nabbed an audience award at the 2008 Santa Barbara Film Festival. An updated trailer featuring Reynolds’ voice hit the Internet in August.
