Scarlett Johansson to play yoga instructor

Monday 20 August, 2007

Scarlett Johansson will play the role of a yoga instructor in a new romantic comedy also starring fellow actresses Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore. Shooting on the film, He's Just Not That Into You, begins later this year.

Entertainment press reports state that the 22-year old actress will play a yoga instructor embroiled in an affair with a married man, in a similar role to Woody Allen's 2005 drama, Match Point.

It is understood that the film - a story dealing with the pitfalls of reading and misreading human behaviour - will be set in Baltimore, USA.

Johansson rose to fame with her 1998 role, The Horse Whisperer and gained critical acclaim in Lost in Translation.

She is also known appearing nude on the controversial cover of the February 2006 issue of Vanity Fair with fellow actress Keira Knightley.
