Scarlett Johansson Signs On For Next Wes Anderson Movie

ScarJo is going from the biggest blockbusters to something much smaller and more intimate.


Even as lawsuits are stewing away over Black Widow's release, Scarlett Johansson is already on set for her next movie. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the actress will star in a currently-untitled film from Wes Anderson.

Details on the film are sparse. The Royal Tenenbaums and Fantastic Mr. Fox director wrote and is helming the film, but plot details are still locked away. Johansson will star alongside previous Anderson players Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and Tilda Swinton; Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, and Rupert Friend are reportedly joining the cast as well. Johansson worked previously with Anderson on 2018's stop-motion film Isle of Dogs. Shooting will wrap in late September according to THR.

Now Playing: Isle Of Dogs - Cast Interviews

Anderson's next movie, The French Dispatch, is expected to hit theaters on October 16, and features the aforementioned Brody, Murray, and Swinton among others. Johansson's Black Widow is finishing up its theatrical run even as the actress is suing Disney over the studio's handling of her film's simultaneous theatrical and streaming release. That move has also called plans for the Tower of Terror movie, which Johansson was set to produce and star in, into question.
