Scarlett Johansson has said she would love to star in an action movie full of stunts.
The 24-year-old actress – who has had some action scenes in The Island and The Spirit – is tipped for the lead roll in new movie The Amazon Warrior, set in 200 BC.
Scarlett told the Daily Telegraph: “I think I’m supposed to be a gladiatrix. These film guys are crazy about gladiatrixes. But do I fit into the Amazon mould? I’m a Danish/Jewish girl from New York. I’ve done weapons training. I’ve fired all kinds of guns: 9mm semi-automatics, machine guns, shotguns. I’ve jumped off a 60ft building. I learnt to ride for The Horse Whisperer. But I’ve never done a full-on action role.
“I guess I’m still waiting for my Cirque du Soleil moment. It would be fun.”
Today you can buy the Scarlett Johansson Collection on DVD. This is merely just a re-packaging of some of Scarlett’s previous films but it is still neat and some of you might wish to pick it up to add to your memorabilia collections.
The films included are A Good Woman (2004) where she played Meg Windermere, Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003) say her as Griet, and An American Rhapsody (2001) had Scarlett playing young Suzanne Sandor.
You can buy it on Amazon for a really cheap $13.99.
Scarlett attended the Extreme Beauty In Vogue event which took place a little earlier today at the 2009 Milan Fashion Week. She looked sensational in a gray leopard printed gown which was ultra fitted to her curves, and wore her wavy read locks down. She accessorized with black pumps and bold red lippy; very va-va-voom!

Speaking of the film, I actually caught it myself this weekend and while I didn’t love it or Scarlett’s role, she did the best with the material provided and since it looks to be a while before we see Scarlett back on the big screen since nothing is slated, I’d definitely say see it for that reason alone.
