Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson will topline a Broadway revival of Arthur Miller drama A View From the Bridge, bowing at the Cort Theater later this season.

Johansson, who recently wrapped production on Iron Man 2, makes her Rialto debut in the role. Schreiber was last on Broadway in the 2007 revival of Talk Radio and won a Tony for Glengarry Glen Ross in 2005.

Gregory Mosher, the director and producer who is also the director of the Arts Initiative at Columbia U., helms. His most recent Broadway directing credit was a 1992 staging of A Streetcar Named Desire starring Jessica Lange and Alec Baldwin.

View is produced by Stuart Thompson (Exit the King, God of Carnage) and the Araca Group (Wicked), along with Jeffrey Finn (Oleanna), Sonia Friedman (The Norman Conquests), the Weinstein Co. and Olympus Theatricals.

Plot centers on a Brooklyn longshoreman (Schreiber) who becomes romantically obsessed with his orphaned niece (Johansson). View bowed as a one-act verse play in 1955 before it was revised into a two-act prose drama, last seen on the Main Stem in a 1997 revival that starred Anthony LaPaglia.

Design team of the latest production includes John Lee Beatty (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), Peter Kaczorowski (lights) and Scott Lehrer (sound). Further casting remains to be announced.

View joins a Broadway season already heavy on starry fare, including the Daniel Craig-Hugh Jackman-toplined A Steady Rain, Jude Law starrer Hamlet and the upcoming revival of A Little Night Music featuring Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Play is skedded for a 14-week run that begins previews Dec. 28 before it opens Jan. 24.

    Hey, I totally love the site!
    I am a huge fan of Scarlett’s :)
    I actually met her this summer in London, when she visited Selfrdige’s and I took a bunch of photos. I could donate them, if you’d like.
    Get back to me if you’re interested, thanks.
