Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are set to put their marriage split aside to continue work on their documentary about killer whales - producers have confirmed both actors are still committed to the joint project.
The Hollywood couple announced on Tuesday (14Dec10) that they have separated after two years of marriage, casting doubt on whether they would continue working together on The Whale - a movie about a baby orca which becomes separated from its parents.
Johansson and Reynolds are both co-executives producers, while The Proposal actor also narrates the movie, which is set in British Columbia close to where the estranged couple exchanged vows in 2008.
But a producer on the project is adamant the stars will both remain involved in the film despite their impending divorce, telling the Los Angeles Times, "We have no reason to believe that their passion and commitment to this project will waver as a result of any changes in their personal lives."
The film is slated for a 2011 release.
