Jordan Two-Delta // THE ISLAND (2005)

Johansson Takes To The Island
from Scifi.Com, December 27, 2004

Scarlett Johansson told SCI FI Wire that she has a tough time trying to describe The Island, an SF film that's in production now with Michael Bay (Armageddon) directing."It's a science fiction film, I guess, and it's also very romantic," she said in an interview. "And it's also an action film."

Johansson (Eight Legged Freaks) added, "Ewan McGregor and I play commissioned clones living in a 'Ray Bradbury' sterile environment, and we are completely unaware of what our purpose is. We escape, and we're chased through downtown L.A. It's a huge story. There are so many different places that we go [storywise], and it's kind of crazy, because we're essentially playing these children, really. We're very wide-eyed, and it's like playing a 4-year-old child in some ways."

Johansson describe The Island as a project of tremendous scope. "It is a big, big production that both DreamWorks and Warner Brothers have joined together to do," she said. "Going into it and knowing it was a Michael Bay film, that adds a whole other level of hugeness to it. ... It is a huge production. I'm terrible at telling anybody what the film is about, because it's a lot to take in, to just summarize. If I tell you the whole thing, what it's really about, it'll take me like 45 minutes. But I've never done anything like it before."

Johansson added, "With a film like this, you go into it and oftentimes you have so many questions. 'I don't understand why this is. ... How do they figure out how to clone this adult? How do we get out?' There are a lot of 'What ifs?' ... But this script happened to be so incredibly solid. And I'm working with Ewan, who is just absolutely delicious and a wonderful, wonderful co-star. Working with Michael, I've never met a more focused director in my entire life. The man walks around with a lens in his pocket all the time. You'll be talking to him, and all of a sudden he'll be looking at you through a lens. You're like, 'What?' And he'll say, 'Move the camera here.' He's always thinking and in filmmaking mode." The Island, which also stars Michael Clarke Duncan, Sean Bean and Steve Buscemi, will be released on July 22, 2005.
