Scarlett Johansson has secured starring role in both New Line Cinema's "He's Just Not That Into You" and Frank Miller-directed "The Spirit."
The rest of this year will be an extremely busy period for Scarlett Johansson, that's for sure.
In addition to her inclusion in period piece "Mary Queen of Scots", the beauty has signed on to highlight not only one but two more big screen features of ensemble comedy "He's Just Not That Into You" and action drama "The Spirit", The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Billed as a pilates instructor/aspiring singer who has an affair with a married man and hopes that he will leave his wife for her in "Into You", Johansson will shoot the project first before moving into "Spirit" which is slated to enter principal photography this October. For the latter one, the actress is said to become Silk N. Floss, a femme fatale secretary and accomplice to the Octopus, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
As for "Scots", it was not until March 2008 that Johansson will begin filming her scenes for the project. Assuming the role of the title character, the beauty will come under the direction of John Curran who is set to helm based on Jimmy McGovern's screenplay which centers on the queen's relationship with the Earl of Bothwell and her rivalry with her half-brother James.
