Johansson Set For Broadway

Published on March 16, 2007 with No Comments

Scarlett JohanssonHollywood beauty Scarlett Johansson is reportedly in talks to star in a New York City production of South Pacific.

The Match Point star is one of the actresses being considered for the role of US Navy nurse Nellie Forbush in a revival of the musical at the Lincoln Center, which is scheduled to open in January 2008.

Director Bartlett Sher is currently arranging auditions for the musical to take place next month, reports the New York Post.

A production source tells the Post: “They want the leads to be sexy. This is not going to be a stodgy old production of South Pacific.”

Last year, Johansson was forced to put out of talks to play Maria in the London stage production of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Sound Of Music, after her management clashed with the theatre impresario over her fees and conditions of her contract.
