Back in January it was rumored that Scarlett Johansson would be part of New York, I Love You, a project that taps 12 directors to create five-minute films, all love stories set in New York City. Woody Allen later stated this to be untrue. Now, however, we know for sure that Scarlett is indeed on board to make her directorial debut with a short film contribution to New York, I Love You!
Offering direction to actor Kevin Bacon and checking out the result on monitors, the actress handled herself with a poise as she got to work on the Big Apple set of her contribution to New York, I Love You, yesterday.
I’ve added nine photos of Scarlett on the set of the film. Behind the cut you can find an article from The Hollywood Reporter (dating back to May 20, 2007) which talks about the project. Please notice that a lot of this info is likely outdated. For example, it states that New York, I Love You would premiere at Cannes Film Festival this year but it is highly unlikely that they would get it finished by May.
