Scarlett Johansson has lined up a series of roles that will see her moving quickly from modern relationships to comic strip noir to costume drama.
Johansson has joined the all-star cast of the ensemble comedy Into You, which she will shoot first, before then materializing as a femme fatale in Will Eisner’s The Spirit, being filmed by Sin City writer/director Frank Miller.
In the winter, she will don a crown for Mary Queen of Scots, a long-gestating project to which she’s has been attached to some time.
In He’s Just Not That Into You, Johansson will play a pilates instructor/aspiring singer who has an affair with a married man and hopes that he will leave his wife for her.
She joins Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long, Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore in the movie of interconnecting story arcs dealing with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior.
Ken Kwapis (License to Wed) is directing the New Line movie.
For The Spirit, Miller’s adaptation of the classic Eisner film noir comic strip series, Johansson is in final negotiations to play a dangerous beauty named Silk N. Floss. Eisner’s strip was known for its women with dangerous curves, and Miller is intent on keeping that tradition. Floss is a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct, making her the perfect accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), an evil mastermind.
Hollywood glamour is heading for Ely Cathedral. The world-famous landmark will be used as a location for a “major sequence” in The Other Boleyn Girl, starring Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kirsten Scott Thomas.
Producers contacted by the News refused to confirm which actors will be on set for filming, which is expected to commence on August 28 for three days. But they said they will be working on an important sequence for the film.
The Other Boleyn Girl, a BBC Films Production, is about the power struggles, rivalries and strained loyalty between Anne and Mary Boleyn. The film has been developed for the big screen by BBC Films after the success of the TV film of the same name, which was shown in 2003.
According to Box Office Mojo The Other Boleyn Girl has unfortunately been delayed from December 21, 2007 to February 29, 2008.
The Nanny Diaries was screened yesterday in New York City. Unfortunately Scarlett was not in attendance as she is currently filming in Spain. The premiere was, however, attended by co-stars Laura Linney, Alicia Keys, Donna Murphy and more. You can find pictures over at Wireimage. Kerry informed us that the official premiere of the film is set for August 22nd in New York, here’s to hoping Scarlett will be there!
Also, Scarlett is not booked for any talk show appearances as of now but hopefully she will also be able to attend The Nanny Diaries screening in Venice, Italy later this month.
I’ve added pictures of Scarlett strolling around Barcelona, Spain with Penelope Cruz while filming the new Woody Allen project. These were snapped yesterday. I really adore Scarlett’s look and you can also see her new tattoo there.
