4. Reflective Light (TBA)

Scarlett Johansson is expected to star in the Focus Features drama ‘Reflective Light’. Art photographer Gregory Crewdson is making his directing debut with Marc Platt producing along with Platt Productions’ Jared LeBoff. The film is an adaptation of the 2014 Carla Buckley novel ‘The Deepest Secret’, which Crewdson and partner Juliane Hiam have adapted. The picture follows a teenage boy who suffers from a malady that makes him gravely allergic to sunlight. If Johansson’s deal goes through, she would play his mother, so devoted to her son’s care that she has alienated the rest of their family, creating an oddly sustainable nocturnal lifestyle for him at the expense of her own well-being. When a neighborhood girl goes missing, the balance that kept them afloat begins to unravel.

Rumored Titles

1. The Psychopath Test (TBA)

Scarlett Johansson is in talks to star in director Jay Roach’s (known for Meet the Parents) film adaptation of best selling novel (of the same name) by Jon Ronson. This thriller revolves around the study of psychopathic behavior. It answers an important question – Whether psychopathy can be clearly defined? Can psychopaths who literally have no empathy be diagnosed? The lead role of Scarlett is unspecified as of now. This movie certainly has a potential and we’d love to see Scarlett in a different role!

2. Tangerine (TBA)

George Clooney is rumored to be producing this psychological thriller based on Christine Mangan’s novel. The story is set in 50’s Morroco where the lives of two college roommates  Alice and Lucy intersect after many years and a secret unfolds after disappearance of  Alice’s husband. Scarlett Johansson will play the intrigue laden role of Alice Shipley in the movie. Clooney and ScarJo have teamed up before for Coen Brother’s Hail Caesar! Though Clooney will not appear in front of screen this time, We hope that this duo deliver!

3. The Beautiful and the Damned (TBA)

Scarlett Johansson is in talks to essay the role of Zelda Fitzgerald wife of famous author F. Scott Fitzgerald (the man behind Great Gatsby) in this biographical drama. It is a controversial role for Scarlett who will portray a mentally troubled novelist and socialite on screen. The story revolves around the boisterous relationship of Zelda and Scott. This doomed love story will surely be an exciting experience. A tough role which needs a tougher actress!
