Scarlett Johansson Joining Cameron Crowe's 'We Bought a Zoo'

November 5, 2010

Scarlett Johansson

Though she's attached to that recent Species-like erotic sci-fi film Under the Skin, the stunning Scarlett Johansson was still in consideration for a lead female role in Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby and Cameron Crowe's forthcoming adaptation of We Bought a Zoo. For now, she's at least snagged one of them as Deadline reports Johansson is in final negotiations to join Matt Damon in the latter of those two adaptations. The story from a memoir from Benjamin Mee follow's the author's own family that bought a rundown mansion in the English countryside which included the 30-acre Dartmoor Wildlife Park, home to over 200 animals.

Johansson beat out other equally talented and beautiful actresses like Amy Adams and Rachel McAdams to take the role in Crowe's adaptation which he also scripted with Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, Morning Glory). Apparently Johansson was also in the running to replace the recently departed Natalie Portman in the adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but with this role now becoming official, her involvement seems rather unlikely. Honestly, aside from her mind-blowing attractiveness, Johansson's talent makes her more appealing than other glorified Hollywood beauties like Megan Fox, so I'll watch her in anything. Sound good?

Cameron Crowe has an amazing ability to bring out the best in just about every actor he works with so this really could have been anyone and I'd be excited but I do like Scarlett Jo.

I', sorry I didn't read anything, Anderton using that picture was a winning mistake, win due to her hotness, and mistake because I didn't read a damn thing.
