Scarlett Johansson Going 'Under the Skin' as Alien Seductress

Scarlett Johansson

Though she's currently on the shortlist of considered actresses for the lead female role in Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby and Cameron Crowe's adaptation of We Bought a Zoo, the lovely Scarlett Johansson is apparently already attached to a new sci-fi film. Deadline has the news out of the American Film Market (from which plenty more news will come) that the actress is attached in Under the Skin, a film from director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast) which will see Johansson as a woman who is actually a deadly alien vixen seductress using her voracious sexuality to scour remote highways and desolate scenery to snare human prey.

Certainly the cheesy, Skinemax nature of the Species franchise comes to mind, but apparently the story is based on Michel Faber's novel of the same name which will be adapted by Glazer and Walter Campbell. FilmNation is behind the project and CEO Glen Basner says, "We're so excited to be working on this arrestingly original movie. How could we pass up the chance to work with a visionary director like Jonathan, especially when combined with the intriguing notion of Scarlett Johansson as a ruthless alien seductress?" Personally, I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to see Scarlett Johansson seduce anything. Production is slated to begin in the spring, there is a chance Johansson gets caught up in one of the aforementioned high profile projects. Anyone interested?
