After a starring role in this spring’s The Other Boleyn Girl, rest assured that this 23-year-old sex symbol won’t be leaving this list anytime soon.

I have been out of town for the past week so I’m a little behind on news. Bear with me as I work on getting the site up-to-date this weekend.

Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona has indeed been confirmed to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May. It will be screened out of competition. For more details, please refer to the festival’s official site.

The Spirit was featured at the New York Comic Convention yesterday. In result, a new teaser trailer and a couple of new posters have been released online. Unfortunately, the teaser does not feature Scarlett but you may still want to have a look at the MTV Movies Blog or YouTube as it certainly looks pretty cool! The posters are also available in the gallery but again, there’s no Scarlett to be seen in those. I hope they’ll eventually release one of her, like this one of Eva Mendes (seen on the left).

Harry Potter star Emma Watson will replace Scarlett Johansson in Napoleon and Betsy. Scarlett will instead take the role of a producer alongside her mother Melanie Sloan.

Emma Watson is attached to star in Napoleon and Betsy, a period drama being written and directed by Benjamin Ross.

Watson will play Betsy Balcombe, a young, impetuous noblewoman trapped on the isolated British Isle of St. Helena who falls in love with Napoleon, who is in exile on the island.

Watson is filling the shoes recently vacated by Scarlett Johansson, who stepped aside as the part skewed younger.

Johansson is still producing, along with Alexandra Milchan, Melanie Sloan and Gilles Arondeau.

In the May issue of Spin magazine, out next week, the actress-turned-singer Scarlett Johansson talks about the Hollywood gossip girls.

Since her star turn in Lost in Translation, Scarlett Johansson has always managed to keep a foothold on the classier, cool side of Hollywood. But now, with her Dave Sitek-produced debut album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head”, due out May 20 on Atco/Rhino, the comparisons to fellow musically-inclined young actresses were sure to follow. Here’s what she had to say about how she sees herself in relation to Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton:

“I have no relationship with either of them, even as far as my lifestyle or the music I listen to. They probably made music that fits with their lifestyle — ‘Wouldn’t it be great if I were dancing to my own song in “da club”?’ But my album is more suited to my lifestyle. I live a very low-key life.”

Vivendi Entertainment and Palm Pictures have secured U.S. rights to New York, I Love You, the ensemble collection of 12 short films currently in production in Manhattan.

Pic is produced by Emmanuel Benbihy and Marina Grasic.

The companies plan to release the film early next year. Shooting is almost two-thirds complete.

Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson make their helming debuts on two of the shorts, all of which are love stories of various kinds. Among helmers onboard are Brett Ratner and Fatih Akin, and the cast already includes Kevin Bacon, Orlando Bloom, Julie Christie, Chris Cooper and Shia LaBeouf.
