Johansson Joins Portman For Period Piece

SCARLETT JOHANSSON has joined NATALIE PORTMAN and ERIC BANA for THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL. The film is based on PHILLIPPA GREGORY's historical novel, with Johansson and Portman playing two fiercely ambitious sisters, MARY and ANN BOLEYN, who were rivals for the heart of 16th century British monarch KING HENRY VIII played by Bana. Executives from BBC Films, which originally acquired the book rights and made a 2003 TV film starring NATASCHA MCELHONE and JARED HARRIS, are also producing the project. Filming is scheduled to begin this autumn (06) in London.
