Scarlett Johansson is at the top of the list to play Nellie Forbush in a Broadway revival of “South Pacific” at Lincoln Center. The classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical is set to debut in 2008. Reese Witherspoon is apparently also in the running, but because of ScarJo’s interest in R&H musicals, she’s at the top of their list.
ScarJo was rumored to star in a revival of “The Sound of Music” in London for Andrew Lloyd Webber, but a deal was never reached. Auditions are currently underway and they are looking for a male opera star to play the male lead.
ScarJo has been confirmed to star in her third Woody Allen film. The film will begin shooting this Summer in Spain with Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.
She’s also adding an album full of Tom Waits to her busy plate.
Homegirl is busy. I say skip Broadway and focus on the films. Ho can’t act and she probably can’t sing. She’s only in Woody Allen films, because he’s hypnotized by her lady lumps.
