Scarlett is keeping her schedule packed



Tbdscarjo082007 Scarlett Johansson is the common thread among three pretty diverse film projects in the works right now, so get ready for the hype machine to kick into overdrive.

In He’s Just Not That Into You, Johansson will play a pilates instructor/aspiring singer who has an affair with a married man, the Hollywood Reporter says. She joins Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Connolly, Justin Long, Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore in that one.

She also is working on a Frank Miller adaptation of Will Eisner’s The Spirit, playing a curvaceous secretary to Samuel L. Jackson in a screen version of the noir comic strip. That should hit in 2009, after starting shooting in October.

Finally, her (ahem) crowning achievement will be Mary Queen of Scots, a long-gestating project about the monarch that should start filming next March. And if you just can’t wait, go check her out in the comedy The Nanny Diaries, which opens Friday, because how can you get enough ScarJo?
