Just like Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson is ready for not her close-up.
Damon’s We Bought a Zoo co-star is set to make her directorial debut with an adaptation of the lost Truman Capote novella Summer Crossing, which follows the story of a young woman who heads to post-World War II New York to discover a new life.
Interesting enough, this was Capote’s first work. He began writing in the early 1940s, but he claimed to have let it go and that he had destroyed it. The novella was discovered after his death and published in 2005.
As of now, Johansson only plans to helm the project, although I’m sure if she wants to the lead she could talk her way into it.
