Scarlett Johansson in Amazon



Moshe Diamant's Signature Pictures has made a deal to finance "Amazon," a vehicle for Scarlett Johansson to play a gladiatrix from 200 B.C.

The idea popped up just like that and Scarlett Johansson immediately told that to screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci. Soon then all of them realized that it was just great for Johansson to play an Amazon warrior. Apparently, they bring the idea to life, set the actress to play a gladiatrix from 200 B.C. who exacts vengeance on an army that destroyed her homeland in the forthcoming "Amazon."

The film is an action drama flick that Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain will write the script. Kurtzman and Orci will produce with Melanie Johansson, Gilles Arondeau and Alexandra Milchan-Lambert. Elsewhere, Blackman and McCain also will direct for Ascendant Pictures and The Weinstein Co. Production on that project starts next June in New Zealand.
