Scarlett Johansson will star as an alien in the sci-fi feature “Under the Skin” for FilmNation according to Heat Vision Blog.
Based on a novel by Michael Faber, Johansson plays an alien disguised as an aesthetically perfect woman who scours remote highways using her voracious sexuality to snare human prey.
She soon begins to develop feelings of humanity which soon puts her in the firing line with her own people. Think “Species” meets “My Stepmother is an Alien”.
Jonathan Glazer (“Sexy Beast”) directs from a script he co-wrote with Walter Campbell. Nick Wechsler and James Wilson will produce, and shooting kicks off in the Spring.
