Scarlett ist in finalen Verhandlungen um in einem neuen Film mitzuspielen: Michael Byas Sci-Fi Thriller 'The Island' mit Ewan McGregor. Das Dreamwork Projekt handelt von einem "gezüchteten Wesen", das sich plötzlich selber wahrnimmt und aus der utopischen Anlage, in der er und andere gehalten werden, zu fliehen versucht. Johansson wäre die Frau, der McGregors Charakter trauen kann. Sie ist ausserdem schwanger, mit dem Kind ihres "Sponsors". Geplant ist ein Drehstart am 25. Oktober. (Quelle).

Updates on the 'problematic' status of 'The Black Dahlia': According to ContactMusic filming has been delayed to winter. Mark Wahlberg has dropped out of his winter project 'Every Word is True' - so that would leave him free. Josh Hartnett could just be able to make it in time - he's filming a new film as of November. Scarlett shouldn't have anything on her winter programme anyway. With the new shooting date, Scarlett has no problems finishing her jury duty at the Venice Film Festival. And she could be so kind to make an appearance at the Toronto Film Festival (there's no confirmation of that yet!!), Josh and Mark are there anyway, so the three of them could talk 'Dahlia' matters... Josh confirmed he's going to play a boxer when he appeared on MTV's TRL yesterday.
There's a full-sized version of Scarlett in the Louis Vuitton Ad. There have been added quite some additional Wallpapers recently.
And the political anti-Bush ads sponsored by MoveOn.Org went online yesterday. Probably, they'll never get aired on TV. Scarlett doesn't exactly appear in one of the ads, but she's lending her voice to a stewardess in an animated ad. (more info on 'her' ad in this site's update from June 16)

Well, this is already quite ‚old’ news: but last Thursday, there was more news on what is happening with ‚Mission Impossible 3’. Last thing we knew was that director Joe Carnahan left the project (before, it was David Fincher who pulled out) and that the shooting start (August 23) was in question. Now, Tom Cruise’s first choice J.J. Abrams is on board to direct. And shooting is being delayed a year till Summer 2005. No word of change of cast yet.
This means probably that Scarlett is free to work on ‘The Black Dahlia’, which is supposed to start shooting next month.
The reason why I put this so vaguely is because early this month an assistant of Mark Wahlberg said at the message board at the actor's official Web site that production is on hold - depending on the schedules of the people involved. Now, that Scarlett's 'problem'-project (M:I-3) has been delayed as has been Mark Wahlberg's ('Every Word Is True', new start date: January 1, 2005. Previously: November 15), everything seems to be clear for shooting of 'The Black Dahlia' to begin in September. (Scarlett will spend the first 11 days at the Venice Film Festival, though...)
Anyway, according to a recent interview, Josh Hartnett has been getting ready for his role as a boxer in the film by adhering to a strict training regime, taking training vitamins and refraining from sugar, cigarettes, and beer. It sounds like he has already invested a lot of his time into ‘The Black Dahlia’ role. As Hartnett was the first actor to sign on for the De Palma film, it sounds like it's one he is taking very seriously. And how did Josh Hartnett meet Scarlett? Through Sofia Coppola, who directed each of them in separate films. This just reminds me of the fact, that I’m still wondering why Josh got a ‘Thanks’ credit in ‘Lost in Translation’....... To find out all the news going on with this project do as I did and visit this great de Palma site.
During the 61st Venice International Film Festival Scarlett and Jeremy Irons will chair the AmFar Cinema Against AIDS event. The actual dinner and live auction will be held September 3 at the Giorgio Cini Foundation on the isle of San Giorgio. Guests include Davide Croff and Marco Muller.
And some news on 'Eternity Moment' - the new Calvin Klein fragrance (Scarlett's the spokeswoman for this product): "This latest Calvin Klein fragrance is an addition to its Eternity line and will be available in department stores next month. The fragrance is priced at $60 for 3.4 ounces."
Then there’s a new site (again) about Scarlett Johansson: Site français. Even if you don’t speak French, go and visit it, it’s looking great!
And we have been nominated twice at the new website awards site Twinnies Awards! Please vote for us in the categories: ‘Best Content - Artist’ and ‘Greatest Webmaster - Artist’. Thank you so much for voting and Andreia for nominating us :-)
And about that interview with Scarlett on the German Lost in Translation DVD: I've made a transcript, read it here.

I've scanned and added that Calvin Klein Ad. View it here. There are also some pictures of Scarlett with Jared Leto from last weekend here. And some more pictures from the Woody Allen film set. View
The Evening Standard has a whole article about what Scarlett has been up to in London. What she’s been ordering, where she’s staying, who she’s been hanging out with and so on and on. They say she’s spending her time in London “rather like a 1920s American heiress on a European Grand Tour”. Additionally, they say also this: “In fairness, those who have met Johansson on the social circuit have been surprised by her demeanour. "She's very non-diva," says Camilla Rutherford, star of Gosford Park and the new face of Max Factor, who was introduced to Johansson at the Cartier event. "She was very low-key, extremely un-grand, just a pleasant young girl, to be honest."”
This may come a bit of a surprise, as it was exactly the same actress who according to previous news reports was rather disappointed by Scarlett when she didn’t want to get photographed with her. So that’s once again a proof that one just can’t believe celebrity gossip.
The article also has some information on the film itself (although Woody Allen tries to keep as much as possible to himself): “…. working on location across the capital, mainly in Notting Hill, Marylebone, Bond Street and Belgravia. The film itself is said to be a gentle satire on young London society, a send-up of the vanities and indulgences of a monied and spoilt set, with even art collector Charles Saatchi reported to have been offered a walk-on part as himself.”
A few days ago, The Guardian had an interview with Woody Allen. And in it he said the following about Scarlett: “And Scarlett is of course just a natural great actress. She can do no wrong, incapable of a bad moment. Very sexy, very pretty. She was just touched by God.'”
I have updated & re-organised the affiliates section. I'm no longer linking back with buttons because the page would take too long to load.

The following deserves a separate update. Mel has created her own Scarlett site. Go and visit it here Scarlett Johanssan Fan. The most active forum visitors may already know her. Since her site's linking to our forum she's one of the new admins (all the Admins of the Forum: Maria, Julio, Nadine and Mel).

I've just bought the September issue of German magazine 'Joy'. They feature a full-sized picture of the Calvin Klein Ad!!!! Also the September issue of UK Marie Claire has two new Louis Vuitton Ads. But unfortunately, they feature Christina Ricci and Chloë Sevigny. So, please check the various issues for one featuring Scarlett!!!!!
I’ve finally closed the poll. I actually never intended to let it run for such a long time, but then I never had the time to set up a new one. Anyway, about the results. Which soundtrack would make number 1 probably never was a question. A total of 745 (!) votes have been cast:
Results - What’s your favourite soundtrack?
‘Lost in Translation’ being the film that probably most of you have seen, the next poll is about it. The question is ‘What’s your favourite scene in ‘Lost in Translation’?’ And there are nearly 20 options to choose from. So, I’m really looking forward to the results of this poll.
What most editions of the ‘Lost in Translation’ DVD are missing is extras with Scarlett. Not so the German DVD. I’ve added the screen caps of the interview with her here. There is also some ‘Behind the Scenes’-footage that was also in the featurette that Nadine had made screen caps of. I too have added some caps (because of better quality) here.
And I’ve found some additional information on ‘A Love Song for Bobby Long’ at the Italian Yahoo! Movies site: Scarlett’s character is called Pursy (short for Purselane) Hominy Will, John Travolta plays Bobby Long and Gabriel Macht plays Lawson Pines. And apparently Scarlett’s character will discover a secret that could change her life forever.
I've also added all the caps of the deleted scenes from 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'. See them here.
