Scarlett Johansson Lands 3 More Roles and She's Not That Into You

Scarlett Johansson Lands 3 More Roles and She's Not That Into You

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.

I love her. Her, Natalie Portman, and Kiera Knightley are the only actresses in their age bracket that don't make me want to stab myself in the eyes and walk out of the theater early. that being said, I'm disappointed that she's going to be in he's just not that into you, because it's going to suck. Jennifer Aniston is a joke, she can only play one character. And not only that, but her one character is annoying and totally unconvincing.

I love that Drew, the two Jennifers and Bradley Cooper are in HJNTIY, but now with Scarlett, woohoo. lol The period film sounds interesting. Love period films and ones about royalty.

The Mary Queen of Scots one sounds very interesting. I'm just not into the first movie at all. In fact, if I hear anymore about it I might just :sick:

I'm impressed - she almost always makes good choices in picking her films (can't say that so much for Black Dahlia and Perfect Score). Her career's flown to the moon and beyond after Lost in Translation (which is a role I'm confident she will never ever top), she's on her third Woody Allen film (!), has made two films for Eric Schaeffer when she was a wee actress, and I truly enjoyed her in The Prestige (despite her sad attempt at a slummy brit accent), A Love Song for Bobby Long and Girl with a Pearl Earring. I finally saw the trailor for The Nanny Diaries, and she seems delightful in it!

"a pilates instructor/aspiring singer who has an affair with a married man and hopes that he will leave his wife for her." I like her and all, but this the same role she played in Match Point except then she was an aspiring actress.
