PageSix.com reports that Scarlett is set to make her directorial debut with a short film set in New York! Knowing that directing has always been a dream of Scarlett’s, I personally could not be more excited for her. :heart:

Woody Allen muse Scarlett Johansson will soon make her directorial debut this year in New York, I Love You, PageSix.com has learned exclusively.

The project, in which Allen will also participate, taps 12 directors to create five-minute films, all love stories set in NYC.

Johansson and Allen will join confirmed directors Anthony Minghella and Mira Nair on the project, from the producers of Paris, J’Taime, a similar flick from 2006.

ScarJo, a New York native and granddaughter of Danish filmmaker Ejner Johansson, is taking the leap with a series of acting projects on the burner.

Reports surfaced yesterday that Johansson was approached by Courtney Love to play her in Heavier Than Heaven, a forthcoming Kurt Cobain biopic.

    Great news! It will be fascinating to see “Scarlett’s eye” and vision though the camera lens.

    Also about the film rumor. If anyone has the talent to play Courtney Love and all her umm “quirks” it’s Scarlett. Thinking back to the mullet days she could probably pull off the look too lol

    Thanks for the news!

    As much I want to celebrate the fact that she’s directing. I’m also not excited about it as well. I’ve grown too cynical when it comes to her as of late. I know the film will be interesting but I don’t think a lot of people are going to be excited about her directing a segment. Hell, it’s bad enough Brett Ratner is directing a segment.

    I think Scarlett will make a great director.
    At least Scarlett Johansson won’t be working on the same film as Woody Allen on that project, could it be that Woody Allen is trying to associate with current popular film stars and directors to try and save his own career and public image?, I don’ t think that is working.
    I am looking forward to hearing more about the film Scarlett Johansson will be directing, I am sure it will be original and well put together by her, I think it will be exciting to see the directing work that Scarlett Johansson does, she is a very talented actress, and designer, I think her directing work will be great.

    In response to the comment that Ally wrote. I and I am sure many people have read before about Woody Allen in the press.
    I don’t like Woody Allen.
    I don’t see Woody Allen being popular with many people at the moment, at the moment his public image and his directing work don’t seen to be getting a lot of praise in the press, so I think Woody Allen isn’t popular with a lot of people at the moment.
    Scarlett Johansson has a lot of fans and I am sure they want to hear about her on a Scarlett Johansson fansite.
    This is a Scarlett Johansson fansite, I do not know why a quote by Woody Allen is on a this fansite, this is a Scarlett Johansson fanstie.

    I think that Woody Allen’s recent film work seems to be all about him, it shows what he is like, it isn’t about the actors it is all about him showing his ideas and what he is like, which I think a lot of people don’t like, I think a lot of people don’t like Woody Allen.
    I think a lot of people don’t want to know about him or his directing work anymore, he doesn’t seem to be popular for his film work or for his public image in the press at the moment.
