You know who’s ready for the strike? Scarlett Johansson, that’s who. The actress has the following movies lined up, according to her IMDB profile:
The Other Boleyn Girl
Woody Allen Spanish Project
He’s Just Not That Into You
Mary Queen of Scots
And that’s just what the IMDB knows about. According to MTV Movie Blog, there’s another film that should be in that list, one that’s going before the cameras this winter, and it’s going to be directed by Samuel Bayer, who directed ScarJo in a nine minute mini-movie with Justin Timberlake*.
“It’s called ‘Brilliance’ and it’s about diamond thieves, and we start shooting this winter,” Bayer told MTV. He got on the film when ScarJo mentioned to him that it was looking for a director. “So many things came together in all the right ways. It really was a case of ‘what goes around, comes around.’ In a good way.”
In the meantime, ScarJo has a couple of days off and if you think you have the right part for her, whether it be in your student film, high school pageant or bat mitzvah, she’s open to talk.
*Who, in my opinion, has really saved pop music from the hell it’s been in for the last couple of years. The growth of JT from *N’Sync to smart, funny and talented pop icon has been fascinating.
