From Black Widow to Tower of Terror. Scarlett Johansson is staying in the Disney family in a big way.
The two-time Oscar nominee will star in and produce the upcoming Tower of Terror feature, according to Collider.
The film marks the latest in a pretty niche type of adaptation: Disney theme park attractions. The Disney park ride Tower of Terror takes guests on a Twilight Zone-style journey of scares, culminating in a free-falling elevator drop. Disney previously found huge global success adapting The Pirates of the Caribbean into a franchise. The company has also adapted The Haunted Mansion (with a new version on the way). Plus, Jungle Cruise arrives this summer with Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson.
Tower of Terror previously transformed into a 1997 TV movie starring Steve Guttenberg and Kristen Dunst.
Inside Out writer/director Josh Cooley is currently writing the Tower of Terror script. So, plot details remain under wraps. The project doesn’t have a director formally attached just yet. Johansson will produce via her company These Pictures alongside Jonathan Lia.
Johansson will next appear on screen reprising her Marvel role as Black Widow. The much-anticipated solo movie for the character debuts in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access July 9.
