Amidst an ongoing lawsuit against Disney on the premise of a breach of contract, Scarlett Johansson has nabbed an undisclosed role in Wes Anderson’s upcoming project.
Cameras have started rolling out in Spain for the shoot of the film, which includes Anderson’s regulars Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman as well as Oscar favourites Tom Hanks and Margot Robbie.
The film is expected to end production in late September, giving way for Anderson to promote his latest release ‘The French Dispatch’, which also stars an array of high profiles including three-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand, Emmy award winning producer Elizabeth Moss and Oscar nominees Timothee Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan among others. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in July last month with a star-studded cast turn up and will arrive in theatres come October 22.
Plot details are still kept under wraps for the upcoming feature, which has Anderson writing and directing.
This will mark the second time Johansson joins forces with Anderson for a project, but the first time in front of the camera for the ‘Black Widow’ actress. They first teamed up in 2018 for the animated work ‘Isle of Dogs’ where Johansson played a female ex-show dog Nutmeg.
Johansson is a two-time Oscar nominee in the categories of best actress, best supporting actress for ‘Marriage Story’ and ‘Jojo Rabbits’ respectively. She is repped CAA and Morris Yorn.
