Scarlett Johansson Joins Frank Miller's Spirit
In typical progressive revealing fashion, another new cast member has been revealed in Frank Miller's The Spirit, this time none other than Scarlett Johansson who will play a femme fatale. She is in final talks to play a dangerous beauty named Silk N Floss along side of Gabriel Macht as The Spirit and Samuel Jackson as the villain The Octopus. The film stars production this October with a scheduled release of 2009.
Will Eisner's strip was known for its women with dangerous curves, and Miller is intent on keeping that tradition. Floss is a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct that makes her the perfect accomplice to the Octopus, an evil mastermind.
Perfecting casting choice? I think so! Miller really has the casting on this nailed down. I don't exactly think Johansson is a great actress, but no one really cares about anything besides how gorgeous she looks. I have a feeling she'll turn out being the sexy seductress we'll all love to hate in The Spirit. Only time will tell, as it looks like we're going to be waiting another year and a half before we'll even see this.
