First look at Scarlett Johansson on the set of Under the Skin
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Most of us didn’t even know it was a confirmed deal, but lo and behold, production is already under way on Jonathan Glazer’s UNDER THE SKIN. The film is an adaptation of Michael Faber’s novel of the same name about an alien that comes to earth and takes the form of a beautiful female (played by Scarlett Johansson) in order to attract human prey. There’s a whole lot more going on than that and rest assured this is not going to be another take on SPECIES. The book is filled with deeper meanings and political commentary and is nothing short of dark and twisted. So much so that I have no idea how Glazer is going to be able to turn it into a watchable film.
Unfortunately, we don’t know anything else about the film, other than it stars Scarlett Johansson in the lead role. Shooting is underway in Scotland.
