In a twist, this story about Scarlett Johansson isn’t about her ongoing lawsuit against Disney. No, this is about something more pleasant. This news is about her and a certain new Wes Anderson film that remains untitled.

A very odd but welcome light in this Disney-induced darkness.

The Hollywood Reporter announced that Scarlett Johansson, not letting her lawsuit get her down, is the latest actress to join the cast of Wes Anderson’s new and still-untitled film. This isn’t Johansson’s first time working with Anderson though. Previously, she provided a voice role in Isle of Dogs as show dog Nutmeg. Now it seems though, Johansson will get to work in a live action film rather than an animated one.

As of yet though, we still have no idea what is this new film Wes Anderson is working on. We don’t even have a title for you. All we know at this point is that it will be a romance film of some description, and that it will also be larger than most of Anderson’s other films. That, and the fact that Anderson is gathering a cast of big name actors and actresses for this film.

Her first role for Wes Anderson, and an adorably fluffy one to boot.

As of this writing, Wes Anderson has managed to gather an impressive ensemble cast for his new film. Scarlett Johansson is merely the latest big name star to join said cast. Thus far, the list of names include Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Margot Robbie, Tom Hanks, and Rupert Friend. I have no idea how this cast is going to do in a romance film. But I wouldn’t mind finding out once Anderson eventually gives us the details.


Scarlett Johansson just landed a gig in Wes Anderson’s new romance film, joining an ensemble cast of other stars. It doesn’t even have a title yet, but it will probably be pretty successful if any of his other films indicate. It’s probably a welcome bit of relief for Johansson. After all, it’s not likely that Disney is ever going to rehire her given her ongoing lawsuit against them over Black Widow.
