Oscar winner Sam Rockwell will re-team with his “Iron Man 2” co-star Scarlett Johansson on Taika Waititi’s upcoming “Jojo Rabbit” for Fox Searchlight.
The movie is about Jojo, a young boy who longs to be part of the Hitler Youth and whose imaginary friend is Adolph Hitler (played by Waititi). He discovers a Jewish girl living in his attic and tries to find ways to get rid of her.
Johansson is playing Jojo’s mother, while Rockwell will play a Nazi captain who runs a Hitler Youth camp. Waititi is producing the film with Carthew Neal and Chelsea Winstanley and filming will kick off this Spring.
