Scarlett Johansson dines with Hitler in this first look at Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit

First thing first I no we are a little late on this news but things have been going on behind the scenes of the site and we have now moved host’s and as you should all see the gallery has a new url with it being on this site now and not it’s own URL, I am still working things out so if something is not working right send me a email or look back later to see if I have got to it yet. But good news no more add’s

Avclub – Taika Waititi is a passionate and meticulous filmmaker, who owns a dazzling array of fruit-themed tees and rompers. To ensure his first tentpole film, Thor: Ragnarok, was a smashing success, Waititi voiced the delightful rock-monster Korg, played one of three heads on an alien, and donned a motion-capture suit to play Surtur and, occasionally, the Hulk himself. So, when the What We Do In The Shadows filmmaker announced plans to play an imaginary Hitler in his own “Nazi comedy,” Jojo Rabbit, you must have known he wasn’t going to merely play someone named Adolf Hitler.

Sure enough, in the first photo of Waititi in the role, the Hunt For The Wilderpeople director has all the Hitler accoutrements, including the mustache, swastika, and slicked-down hair.

Again, we’ll remind you that Waititi is playing an imaginary Hitler, which is presumably why Scarlett Johansson, who stars as Mrs. Betzler, is smiling in the general direction of the Nazi leader and her son Jojo, played by Roman Griffin. The film centers on young Jojo, a very lonely boy who is also not all that well-informed, as the Hitler he conjures is a “Polynesian Jew,” as Waititi himself described it. Earlier this month, Waititi underscored the fact that Jojo Rabbit is a satirical work.

To help offset the führer fuckery above, here’s another set photo, which Waititi tweeted along with some of his renowned Avengers knowledge.

Jojo Rabbit is currently in production, and there’s currently no word on a release date.

Scarlett Johansson to Star in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ for Fox Searchlight

Variety Scarlett Johansson is in final negotiations to star in Fox Searchlight’s World War II film “Jojo Rabbit,” sources tell Variety.

The project is Taika Waititi’s follow-up to “Thor: Ragnarok,” and is set during World War II and centers on a young German boy who finds out that his mother, to be played by Johansson, is hiding a Jewish girl in their home.

While Waititi has been offered several films following the success of “Thor: Ragnarok,” the director made it clear that “Jojo Rabbit” would be his next film. While Waititi has been busy filming his “What We Do in the Shadows” pilot, he was able to meet with Johansson prior to that production to discuss the role.

With Johansson now on board, Waititi will now look to cast the young boy role.

Waititi penned the script and will produce alongside Carthew Neal and Chelsea Winstanley. Production is expected to start this spring.

The film would mark a change of pace for Johansson, who has been focused on action and comedy movies, including last year’s “Ghost in the Shell” and the Sony comedy “Rough Night.” She can be seen next in “Avengers: Infinity War” and is also lending her voice to Wes Anderson’s animated “Isle of Dogs.” She also recently signed on to the Focus drama “Reflective Light.”

She is repped by CAA.
