Scarlett to wear loin cloth?

Scarlett Johansson (The Island) is set to star in a new action adventure film called Amazon, according to Variety.

Apparently she came up with the idea herself while filming The Island. She reportedly mentioned the concept to screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, who are producing the project.

The film, set in 200 B.C., will reportedly center around Johansson who plays a "gladiatrix" who takes on an army that destroyed her homeland.

Somebody pinch me...

If this is serious, I'll end up doing a "Ciaran" in the cinema, and get myself kicked out!

Shit idea, great film. You're missing the point anyway: THEY didn't come up with the idea- Scarlett Johanssen will be a Gladiatrix. This is enough.

....(weary sigh) So we are to be treated to another "acting" performance from Ms Johansson, The Academy and I can hardly wait. And what thought provoking subject will the moribund Ms Johansson be tackling??? Yes, the subject of her running around in skimpy leopardskin panties while keeping her make up and hair perfect....all this while living three hundred years before the birth of our Lord. I literally cannot wait.......for Hollywood to come up with an original idea which does make me want to take a Bowie knife and run amoke. This film was done in 1966 and called One Million Years BC and stared Racquel Welch. Her acting is about as original as her ideas!!!!

Just because the concept isn't new, doesn't necessarily make it bad. Actually, her prancing around on screen as a Gladiatrix is enough to ensure the success of this project.
Sad, drooling males that we are.
