Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain are trying to corner the market on sword-swinging fantasy adventures.

Blackman and McCain have been hired to rework the script for Conan, as in the barbarian, for Lionsgate. And the writing team’s action-adventure screenplay Amazon, an epic about female warriors to which Scarlett Johansson has been attached, is sailing out of turnaround toward Lionsgate as well, with Neal Moritz and his Original Film banner coming on to produce once the deal is completed.

Director searches are under way for both.

The press section has been updated with the following new pieces:

Here are a couple of interesting quotes from the articles:

“I’m productive, I think, in other aspects of my life, my career maybe. I don’t know. I think that I want to work not just to work. I want to feel like there’s a purpose behind it. It’s hard to find good roles for young women. They don’t come along that often. It’s a kind of weird age group. I’m twenty three and it’s like I’m a young woman, quite a young woman, but I’m at a certain kind of transient phase in my life and things are changing for me. Obviously, I’m growing up. I think it’s a hard time. There are only so many parts available for that. Like I said too, I’ve been focusing on other things that I’ve been excited about.”

“Any time someone makes a huge generalization about you you’re just like, ‘Okay. I guess so.’ But I certainly work with certain non-governmental organizations that I work hard for and I try to use whatever interest that people might have in me to shine the spotlight on these certain causes that I’ve researched and believe in and seen firsthand work. I try to focus on those things that I’m passionate about. I’m hard to distract. It’s probably a good quality and a bad quality, but when I’m focused I’m focused on something.”

Just a friendly reminder that Scarlett will be on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight!

We will have a video clip as well as screencaptures of her appearance as soon as possible. However, I am going away for the weekend so if I won’t be able to add it tomorrow morning, it will be added first thing when I get back next week. Thanks for your patience.

I have – finally – updated the fan archive. Unfortunately it was long and overdue but to make up for the slow updates, I’ve made sure to provide lots of cool graphics. I snagged many from Scarlett’s LJ communities and credited all creators. Thanks to all who contributed, especially ScarlettSkies!

Thanks to Elena Bush of First Book for passing on information about a fun campaign Scarlett is participating in – “What Book Got You Hooked?” (www.firstbook.org/whatbook) – a book lovers’ campaign from First Book that will bring thousands of new books to kids in need.

I’ve uploaded the gallery with 100+ new HQs from the two events that Scarlett attended this week and made screencaps of her brand new interviews. Be sure to view the Movie Guy interview here.

It seems Penelope Cruz had the best of both worlds filming Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona as she got hot and heavy with real-life beau, Javier Bardem, and screen siren Scarlett Johansson.

While relationship questions regarding Bardem were off-limits at the film’s Los Angeles press day over the weekend, Cruz (who also brought her big dog to the interviews) admitted that kissing Johansson wasn’t anything special.

“We didn’t talk about it much, then Woody told us how the shot was going to be, but Scarlett and I don’t have any funny stories to tell about it,” Cruz said. “It felt [like] nothing, nothing happened.”

Scarlett, on the other hand, seemed to prefer her girl-on-girl smooch to kissing Bardem.

“Well, Javier was hairier,” she admitted when asked whether kissing Bardem or Cruz was more pleasurable. “I understand the hype around it, but I think it’s just because people are so conservative.”
