Scarlett Johansson is on the news for landing the role as a sexy alien in the sci-fi drama “Under the Skin.”
According to Heat Vision, Johansson will play “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.”
Although many are criticizing the film as a remake of “Species” or “just any other low-budget sci-fi B-movie, Heat Vision reports that Johansson’s character “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.”
“Under the Skin” will be written and directed by Jonathan Glazer.
Aside from being an alien, Johansson will also reprise her role as Natasha Romanov/Black Widow in Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” and other projects such as “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” “The Great Gatsby,” and “We Bought a Zoo.”
Production of “Under the Skin” is set to begin next year.
