Scarlett Johansson is set to star in Under The Skin from director Jonathan Glazer. Glazer co-wrote this script with Walter Campbell and they are planning to be in production starting late spring 2011.
This sci-fi drama will have Johansson playing an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. Her mission on earth is search the planet for human prey using her greatest weapon her “voracious sexuality’.
This does not seem like much of a stretch for Johansson, but it does get even better. On top of being drop dead gorgeous her character will be able to easily drop you dead with her killer instincts. Those killer instincts become changed after being on earth experience her new found humanity and thus weakening her tough alien inner self causing her to wage battle with her own kind.
