Scarlett Johansson, a renowned Hollywood actress, has been added to the star-studded cast of Wes Anderson’s upcoming project that remains unnamed. Johansson, who received an Oscar nomination for her roles in “Marriage Story” and “JoJo Rabbit,” was previously in the headlines for filing a lawsuit against Disney over her recent film “Black Widow,” which created a stir in Hollywood.
Scarlett has teamed up with the director of Rushmore before for his stop-motion film, Isle of Dogs. However, this will be her debut in one of his live-action films. The cast includes Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, and Bill Murray, as well as first-time directors Margot Robbie and Tom Hanks. The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report on Johansson’s casting.
Johansson took legal action against Disney for violating their agreement when they released “Black Widow” on Disney Plus, allowing viewers to rent the film for $30 at the same time it was in theaters. The actress argued that this hurt ticket sales and negatively impacted the film’s earnings. Disney responded by claiming that the contract only required a “wide release” and did not specify an exclusive theatrical release. This legal battle has received significant attention.
