Scarlett Johansson will portray Mary Queen of Scots in a new movie. The film will depict the antagonistic relationship between Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth I of England, who tried to undermine her rule. 2929 Entertainment is producing the project from a screenplay by Jimmy McGovern. The budget is expected to be in the $25 million-$30 million range. Scarlett’s mother Melanie Johansson will produce the film along with Alexandra Milchan and Donna Gigliotti.
The producers are looking for a director but plan to begin shooting the film by the end of summer 2007.

A-list stars Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman could be spotted in Lacock over the next few weeks as Hollywood film crews return to the picturesque village.
The two actresses are starring in The Other Boleyn Girl, the tale of sisters Anne and Mary Boleyn, who are rivals for the heart of Henry VIII.
A publicist for the film confirmed the stars would be arriving in Lacock to film scenes in the coming weeks.
“We will be filming in Lacock Abbey over the next few weeks. It just looks right for the period and we look forward to filming there enormously,” she said.
The Daily Mail announced today that Kristin Scott Thomas has joined the cast of The Other Boleyn Girl as the mother of Mary and Anne Boleyn. Benedict Cumberbatch is also mentioned as a cast member.
According to some rumours, the film has began filming today in the London area. Other rumoured filming locations of the future include Lacock and Bath.
Well, it is 15th September here in Scotland now which means that The Black Dahlia opens today in the US and UK. Be sure to go and see Scarlett Johansson as Kay Lake and let us know what you thought of the movie.
Because of the positive reaction that the forum idea received, Scarlett-Fan.com now has its very own and brand new message board! It is still looking rather empty so be sure to come by and check it out and discuss The Black Dahlia with me!
Gossip site Daily Snack recently reported that Ms. Johansson is rumoured to be playing victim Natascha Kampusch in a a £50million Hollywood movie. Scarlett’s publicist has confirmed this article to not be true, that her involved is just internet gossip.
The press archive has been updated with two new The Black Dahlia related interviews.
Miss Scarlett has been featured in several European magazines this past month. The Vogue photoshoot is so beautiful – I just wish that the article was a little longer. What I find interesting is how UK magazines seem quite keen on writing about the RED campaign but it has barely been mentioned by the US media. US Vogue has never given Scarlett a proper feature either – let alone a magazine cover – but the UK edition has featured her on the front cover twice now.
Also – offline I am working on a lot of new features for the site. I don’t really want to reveal them yet because it is a lenghty process that will take time. Yes, the video archive will see a huge update very soon too.
But I wanted to ask all of you something. We get so many amazing comments here every day and I am very thankful for that. It really inspires me to update because interaction is what I most love about making a fansite. The question is that would you be interested in me setting up a new message board for the site? Yes, there is already a forum about Scarlett that used to be apart of the site but many of you have expressed interest in having one that is purely focused on Scarlett’s career and would not be into gossip and all of that. We already have a little community of people commenting who have expressed a desire in a forum project. Setting up a forum might inspire even more discussion and certainly would archive all of the comments for a longer period of time. But since I am a busy girl, I don’t want to do it for nothing if no one would be interested in writing.
Comments concerning this would be appreciated.
