Scarlett Johansson has been super busy lately, readying herself for the premiere of one movie next Friday (The Nanny Diaries), working on Woody Allen's latest project and scoring herself three more roles.
One of these is in the oft-reported-on film adaptation of He's Just Not That Into You. In it she joins the all-star cast (now with more Aniston!) as "a pilates instructor/aspiring singer who has an affair with a married man and hopes that he will leave his wife for her."
Next after that project Johansson will try her hand at a comic-book movie, playing a dangerous woman named Silken Floss in Will Eisner's The Spirit, directed by Frank Miller. Apparently, "Floss is a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct that makes her the perfect accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), an evil mastermind."
And finally, she will join the cast of Mary Queen of Scots in the title role. Hollywood Reporter describes the project as a "period indie, a love story based on the early life of the legendary queen (Johansson) that focuses on her relationship with the Earl of Bothwell and her rivalry with her half-brother James." John Curran (We Don't Live Here Anymore, The Painted Veil) is set to direct.
If I've learned anything about the film world today it is that filmmakers love the ScarJo.
