Actress Scarlett Johansson has bagged a new project amid her ongoing suit with Disney.
The 36-year-old star has joined Wes Anderson for his upcoming movie. The film, which is currently untitled, will also star Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, and Bill Murray. Margot Robbie and Tom Hanks in prominent roles.
Johansson recently made headlines when she sued Disney for breach of contract after the company released Marvel’s “Black Widow” simultaneously in theaters and on their streaming service, Disney+.
“This suit was filed as a result of Disney’s decision to knowingly violate Scarlett’s contract. They have very deliberately moved the revenue stream and profits to the Disney+ side of the company, leaving artistic and financial partners out of their new equation. That’s it, pure and simple,” said Johansson’s representative.
