Scarlett Johansson To Become Sexy Human-Eating Alien In ‘Under The Skin’
  |  @   |  

For the adoring eyes of fanboys everywhere, that title says it all.

According to reports, Scarlett Johansson is set to star in Under the Skin for writer and director Jonathan Glazer.

In the movie, Johansson will go other-worldly, playing an alien walking amongst us disguised as the “perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman.” And what is she doing here? Well, she’s using her “voracious sexuality” to hunt for human prey along highways and other desolate locations.

While a movie just about Scarlett Johansson running around eating us would be amusing enough, there is more to the plot. It’s further described that “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.”

Glazer hasn’t done anything since 2005, but is best known for directing the Ben Kingsley drama, Sexy Beast, as well as writing and directing Birth, which starred Nicole Kidman.

Glen Basner, CEO of FilmNation, the company behind the movie, said this of the announcement:

We’re so very excited to be working on this arrestingly original movie. How could we pass up the chance to work with a visionary director like Jonathan, especially when combined with the intriguing notion of Scarlett Johansson as a ruthless alien seductress?

No word on when production is planned to start, or when we might be able to see Johansson killing our own. Could this be the next Species? Or will it fall more along the lines of Jennifer’s Body?

  1. I liked it better when it was called ‘Species’. It got pretty tired fast though…. It’d be nice to see Scarlett w/o clothes just like Natasha Henstridge… but I doubt that’ll happen.

  2. WTF? This has got to be a freakin’ joke. Yes, CaptHowdy…this was Species alright. And she probably won’t be doing a nude scene, just like you said.

    Hollywood, you suck.
