Scarlett Johansson has signed on for the science fiction story Under the Skin, reports Heat Vision.
The film, currently looking for buyers at the American Film Market, comes from director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) who co-wrote Under the Skin with Walter Campbell. The official description is as follows:
Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey — her voracious sexuality. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.
Johansson last appeared as Natasha Romanov (aka The Black Widow) in this past summer’s Iron Man 2. She will next reprise the role for The Avengers.
