Johansson Confirmed for Third Allen Film


Woody Allen has set Scarlett Johansson to star in the untitled film he’ll shoot this summer in Spain, reports Variety. It will be her third starring role in his past four films, making Johansson the actress Allen has used most frequently since his early runs with Mia Farrow and Diane Keaton.

Johansson and Rebecca Hall (The Prestige) join Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz in the film, which will shoot for six weeks in Barcelona and one week in Asturias. Allen will trek to Spain in June for pre-production and then will return to begin production after the July 4 holiday.

Johansson previously starred in Allen’s Match Point and Scoop.
