Scarlett Johansson becomes an alien in Under the Skin
Production recently started on the sci-fi project Under the Skin, which is slated for release sometime next year. Scarlett Johansson will star as a woman who is not of this Earth in the new sci-fi alien project Under the Skin.
Scarlett Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey — her voracious sexuality. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.
Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast) is directing Under the Skin from a script he co-wrote with Walter Campbell, which is based on the novel of the same name written by Michael Faber. Under the Skin comes to theaters in 2012.
