Scarlett Johansson signs on for “Can A Song Save Your Life?”

This week Scarlett Johansson, signed on to do a new film with director John Carney about a singer-songwriter titled “Can A Song Save Your Life?”

John Carney, is the Italian-Director responsible for the popular 2006 indie Once.

Judd Apatow has signed on as executive producer, telling us that there will definitely be a comedic element; in this story of a washed-up A&R man in New York City, who forms a bond with a young singer-songwriter from out of town.

The male lead for the story has still not been cast,  although we here  that Mark Ruffalo and Jim Carrey are interested in the role.

“I’ve been writing it for a year and a half,” said Carney. ‘‘I went out to Los Angeles to meet Scarlett a couple of months ago. She was everything you could imagine – very hot, elegant and she’s really smart.”She was a prime choice for this role because of her musical background.  Johansson has previously released an album of Tom Waits covers and collaborated on a record with Pete Yorn.

This mix of musical and comedy should be interesting as filming begins early next year.
