スカーレット・ヨハンソン、初監督作品でカポーティの処女作を映画化

ジョージ・クルーニーアンジェリーナ・ジョリードリュー・バリモアナタリー・ポートマン、そしてジェニファー・アニストンと、成功を収めた俳優/女優が監督に進出することが多いハリウッド。そこにスカーレット・ヨハンソンが加わった。

<Variety>が報じたところによると、スカーレットは長いこと"幻の作品"と呼ばれていたトルーマン・カポーティの中編小説『Summer Crossing』の映画化に挑戦するという。カポーティは、オードリー・ヘプバーン主演映画でも話題となった『ティファニーで朝食を』の原作小説を書いたほか、『冷血』や『遠い声 遠い部屋』といった名作を発表し、天才とうたわれたアメリカの小説家。『Summer Crossing』は、第二次世界大戦後のニューヨークを舞台に、独り立ちして新たな人生をつかむ若い女性を描いている。この小説は発行されることなく、長い間世に出ていなかった。だが1984年のカポーティの死後に発見され、2005年に敢行されていた。

現時点では、スカーレットの出演は明らかになっていない。だが年齢的にも、監督だけでなく主演を務めても問題なさそうだ。

マット・デイモンと共演した感動作『幸せへのキセキ』をはじめ、アメコミ超大作『ジ・アベンジャーズ』、そしてスリラー『Under The Skin』など、今後も公開作が目白押しのスカーレット。すでに『アイアンマン』第3弾の出演も決定しているという。
