Scarlett Johansson Director
November 18, 2011 by staff
Scarlett Johansson Director, Scarlett Johansson’s directorial debut has been confirmed. The American actress will step behind the camera for an adaptation of Summer Crossing, a novella by Truman Capote.
The story is set in New York shortly after World War II and follows an 18-year-old girl as she tries to carve out a new life for herself away from her overbearing family.
The movie will be produced by Barry Spikings, who received an Academy Award for his work on The Deer Hunter, reports Variety.
Peter D. Graves will be executive producer, alongside people involved in the Truman Capote Literary Trust.
Tristine Skyler is working on the screenplay.
The novella is famed as it was written in the 40s but then lost, and didn’t make it to print for around 50 years.
Scarlett has previously mentioned she was keen to work on the project. In September she explained she was hoping to helm the movie as she has always loved the book.
“I’ve wanted to direct since I was 12, since I watched Bob Redford direct on The Horse Whisperer,” she said. “I was like, ‘I want that job! It’s really a dream come true.”
