If you have to choose somebody to see in three projects you really couldn't choose much better than Scarlett Johansson. Well, I can think of a couple, but only a couple.
Scarlett Johansson a Triple Threat
Scarlett Johansson has got an entire lineup of films coming our way including her latest addition, He's Just Not That Into You; which has been casting like crazy, by the way.
She will shoot Not That Into You first and then change into a femme fatale for The Spirit - to be directed by Frank Miller (Sin City) for Odd Lot.
By the first drop of rain this winter, Johansson will find herself donning the crown on the set of Mary Queen of Scots. She has been attached to this project the longest.
So why the back-to-back(-to-back) roles? Like many in the industry, Johansson is prepping for the possibly strike.
For 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. If you have been following the casting of this film, you will find that all the character are carrying baggage. Ken Kwapis will be sitting in the director's chair for this chick flick.
Up next, The Spirit, Johansson is in final negotiations to play a dangerous beauty named Silk N. Floss. Eisner's comic was known for its women with dangerous curves, an attribute that Miller plans on keeping in the film. Silk is the accomplice to the Octopus, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Gabriel Macht is onboard as the title character.
And, finally, we have Mary Queen of Scots. With John Curran behind the camera, Scots is a period indie and a love story based on the early life of the queen (Johansson) and her relationship with Earl of Bothwell. To throw a wrench in the machine, Mary also had a rivalry with her half-brother James.
