Yep. I’m fully on board with this. Guardian reports:
Scarlett Johansson’s alien seductress will use her ‘voracious sexuality’ to harvest human body parts in the Scottish Highlands, say Under the Skin producers. To some, Scarlett Johansson is the dream woman. Now the actor is to star as a pin-up extraterrestrial who roams the Scottish Highlands in search of male hitchhikers whose body parts she can harvest, in a sci-fi film directed by Jonathan Glazer. Under the Skin will be produced by FilmNation, who today issued a statement explaining that Johansson will play “an alien on Earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey – her voracious sexuality.”
This sounds dangerously close to Species, but Species had Natasha Henstridge naked in almost every scene. Will Scarlett be naked in every scene? Will my cat finally kill me in my sleep? How long until my lunch gets here? Stay tuned to IDLYITW for all the answers to these burning questions and more!
