Scarlett Johansson to star in Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit

The Ghost in the Shell actor will be teaming up with Thor: Ragnarok director for her next, based on World War II 

Published: 29th March 2018

Actress Scarlett Johansson is reportedly in final negotiations to star in Taika Waititi's World War II film Jojo Rabbit.

The project is filmmaker Waititi's follow-up to Thor: Ragnarok. It is based on a young German boy who finds out that his mother, to be played by Johansson, is hiding a Jewish girl in their home.

While Taika Waititi was offered several films following the success of Thor: Ragnarok, the director made it clear that Jojo Rabbit would be his next film. 

With Johansson now on board, Taika Waititi is on the lookout for an actor to play the role of the young boy.

Taika has penned the script and will produce the film alongside Carthew Neal and Chelsea Winstanley. The film is expected to commence this spring.

The film would mark a change of pace for Scarlett Johansson, who has been focused on action and comedy movies, including last year's Ghost in the Shell and the Sony comedy Rough Night

She will be next seen in Avengers: Infinity War and is also lending her voice to Wes Anderson's animated Isle of Dogs
