Scarlett_Johansson1.jpgThe Hollywood Reporter is stating Scarlett Johansson will be playing the part of Silk N. Floss in the upcoming Spirit movie written and directed by Frank Miller.

For “Spirit,” Miller’s adaptation of the classic Eisner film noir comic strip series, Johansson is in final negotiations to play a dangerous beauty named Silk N. Floss. Eisner’s strip was known for its women with dangerous curves, and Miller is intent on keeping that tradition. Floss is a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct that makes her the perfect accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), an evil mastermind.

This news is a bit odd, because Miller said he was adapting the Sand Saref storyline to be used in the film. From the review I wrote here, neither the Octopus, nor Silk N. Floss appear in the story. Will have to investigate further.
