Scarlett Johansson's Diamond Heist Film
Yet another music video director turned feature film director, and this time he's getting Scarlett Johansson. The director of Justin Timberlake's "What Goes Around… Comes Around" music video, Samuel Bayer, will re-team with Johansson on his first feature film titled Brilliance. The film is a diamond heist movie about diamond thieves, presumably Johansson plays one of the thieves.
MTV got the scoop chatting with Bayer.
"It's about diamond thieves, and we start shooting this winter," Bayer said. "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."
It sounds good, but I guarantee you it's no Snatch. No word as to who wrote the script, which is the much more essential part especially for a heist movie. I'll definitely say I'm interested, but not at all sold. There's too much more that is up in the air on this, but I am in the mood for another good jewel heist movie.
