Scarlett Johansson Exits Trans Film ‘Rub and Tug’ Amid Backlash

variety – Scarlett Johansson has exited the drama film “Rub and Tug” a little more than a week after her casting sparked backlash amid trans groups and activists, a source with knowledge of the situation confirms to Variety.

“In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project,” Johansson told Out Magazine, which first reported the news, in a statement. “Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive. I have great admiration and love for the trans community and am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues. According to GLAAD, LGBTQ+ characters dropped 40% in 2017 from the previous year, with no representation of trans characters in any major studio release.”

“While I would have loved the opportunity to bring Dante’s story and transition to life, I understand why many feel he should be portrayed by a transgender person, and I am thankful that this casting debate, albeit controversial, has sparked a larger conversation about diversity and representation in film,” the statement continues. “I believe that all artists should be considered equally and fairly. My production company, These Pictures, actively pursues projects that both entertain and push boundaries. We look forward to working with every community to bring these most poignant and important stories to audiences worldwide.”

New Regency won an auction for the movie on July 2, and it was set to be directed by Rupert Sanders, who previously worked with Johansson on “Ghost in the Shell.”

“Rub and Tug” focused on Dante “Tex” Gill, a crime kingpin who used his massage parlor as a front for prostitution in the ’70s and ’80s. Gill lived his life as a trans man, which led many on social media to wonder why a trans actor wasn’t tapped for the role.

It’s currently unclear where production stands on “Rub and Tug” after Johansson’s exit.

Scarlett Johansson To Play Mob-Connected Massage Parlour Owner In “Rub & Tug”

The Guardian – Film is based on the life of Dante ‘Tex’ Gill, a Pittsburgh massage parlour owner who used a male identity

Scarlett Johansson is to play a celebrated real-life massage-parlour owner, a woman who lived as a man, in new film Rub & Tug.

Deadline reports that Hollywood production outfit New Regency (previously involved with 12 Years a Slave, Birdman, and The Revenant) has picked up the project, which will see Johansson working again with Ghost in the Shell director Rupert Sanders.

Rub & Tug is based on the life of Dante “Tex” Gill, a notorious figure in the Pittsburgh underworld in the late 70s and early 80s. Gill – born Lois Jean Gill – ran a number of mafia-protected massage parlours in the city, which were fronts for prostitution. Gill stood out for her adoption of male clothing and hairstyles, and her longterm relationship with Cynthia Bruno. Gill was eventually convicted of tax evasion in 1984, and spent seven years in prison. She died in 2003.

Among Rub & Tug’s producers is the prolific Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes, The Nice Guys, The Matrix trilogy) and filming is due to begin in February 2019.

All The Details We Know About The Black Widow Standalone Movie Starring Scarlett Johansson, Whose Director Search Is Heating Up

uk.businessinsider – After nearly a decade of playing the role, Scarlett Johansson is finally getting her own Black Widow movie.

The one thing that DC has on Marvel is a movie starring a female hero. 2017’s “Wonder Woman” was a wonderful movie, and its sequel looks just as promising so far. Thankfully Marvel is catching up: “Captain Marvel” is coming out in early 2019, and the Black Widow movie is getting further into its development. Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige has stated that it is putting a lot of time and effort into making it right: the character has, after all, been appearing in these movies for almost a decade, so she deserves a proper movie. More than 65 directors have reportedly been interviewed to take on the project, and Marvel plans on hiring a female director.

This week, Deadline reported that Marvel had narrowed the directing gig down to three women. While Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff) doesn’t actually have superhuman powers (or enough money to make an iron suit), the character is integral to the franchise. She uses her skills as a former assassin and a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent to bring the Avengers together and keep them that way.

She has a complex but little-seen history, since she used to be a deadly assassin for the KGB. She was spared by Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), who was supposed to assassinate her. Here’s everything we know about her standalone movie:

It will be part of the MCU’s phase 4 line-up.
Phase 4 starts after “Avengers 4” with “Spider-Man: Homecoming 2” (July 2019), and will also include “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which doesn’t have a release date yet.

Jac Schaeffer is writing the screenplay.
Scaheffer wrote 2009’s “TiMER,” the short “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” and 2019’s upcoming “The Hustle,” which stars Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. Johansson is reportedly contributing ideas to the screenplay. In 2016, Johansson told Variety about the endless possibilities for Black Widow film:

“There’s a lot of places you can go — you can bring it back to Russia. You could explore the Widow program. There’s all kinds of stuff that you could do with it. You could really uncover the identity of who this person is, where she comes from and where she’s part of. There are so many ways you can go. I think it would just have to be very much like its own specific thing. It would have to have its own specific vibe. It would have been totally different than any of the other standalone films. I think if the fans wanted it enough, then it would probably become a reality.”

Filming will begin next year.
This probably means that the movie will come out in 2020 or 2021, depending which half of 2019 filming takes place.

There have been rumors that the movie will be a prequel featuring Bucky Barnes as the Winter Soldier.
This would likely show Natasha during her early years in the US after the fall of the Soviet Union, when she first gets involved with S.H.I.E.L.D. Since Hawkeye and Natasha work together for years before the Avengers forms, it’s safe to assume that he will be in the movie as well. But then again, we also assumed he would be in “Infinity War.” Winter Soldier’s involvement could be quite significant. In “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” Natasha mentions a run-in with him, and it probably wasn’t just throwaway dialogue:

“Five years ago I was escorting a nuclear engineer out of Iran, somebody shot at my tires near Odessa. We lost control, went straight over a cliff, I pulled us out, but the Winter Soldier was there. I was covering my engineer, so he shot him straight through me. A Soviet slug, no rifling. Bye-bye bikinis.”

Anthony Mackie has expressed interest in appearing in a Black Widow movie.
Unfortunately, if the movie is a prequel, it’s unlikely that Sam Wilson/Falcon would be written into it, since he didn’t join the team until “Winter Soldier.”

According to reports, Scarlett Johansson will make between $25 and $31 million for the movie.
Not confirmed, but this would make Scarlett Johansson the highest-paid female actor.

Marvel looked at over 65 directors to take on the project.
In late April, a report surfaced that Marvel Studios had interviewed over 65 directors for the Black Widow movie, with the intention to hire a woman. Before Marvel announced that it would hire a female director, “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi said he’d be interested in directing a Black Widow comedy.

Now, it’s narrowed down to three directors.
Cate Shortland, Amma Asante and Maggie Betts

“Thor Ragnarok” HD Screen Captures

Thor Ragnarok is now out on Blu-Ray and DVD, and as some may or may not known Scarlett has a little part in it with her video she did for Bruce Banner when he was in the quinjet from Age Of Ultron, We did get to see a little of it in that movie but the full clip was shown in Thor Ragnarok and was a nice little touch. HD Screen Captures from the little part are now up in the gallery for you all to see.

Marvel’s Standalone ‘Black Widow’ Movie Gains Momentum With Jac Schaeffer Writing

Marvel is finally pushing ahead with the highly anticipated “Black Widow” standalone movie starring Scarlett Johansson, with Jac Schaeffer penning the script.

Sources say this is still very early development, as the film has no greenlight, but naming a writer is the closest the studio has come to moving forward on a standalone pic. Marvel President Kevin Feige met with several candidates before tapping Schaeffer, and Marvel execs met with Johansson to discuss what they wanted from a “Black Widow” writer.

Schaeffer is an up and coming scribe who broke out with her Black List script “The Shower,” a comedy about an alien invasion during a baby shower which caught the eye of Anne Hathaway, who quickly attached herself to star in the pic.

Hathaway was so impressed with her work that she soon tapped Schaeffer to write “Nasty Women,” a new female-centric take on “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” that also stars Hathaway.

Marvel had no comment.

Fans of the character have been pushing for her to get own movie since she first appeared in “Iron Man 2” and with the latest phase of Marvel films coming to a close, Marvel saw this as the best time to move forward with the project.

Johansson has appeared as the character in six films, the next one being this summer’s “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Schaeffer is repped by Verve and Writ Large.
