Movie darling Scarlett Johansson has signed up to star in Minnesota singer TRUMAN's new video, which is all about the arty film she's currently winning acclaim for.

Truman wrote THE GIRL WITH A PEARL a year before Johansson's film GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING was released, and now studio bosses at LIONS GATE are using the tune to promote the film.

And, after hearing the tune for the first time, the actress became a fan and begged to appear in the song's video.

Both the film and the song use TRACY CHEVALIER's novel about VERMEER's painting Girl with a Pearl Earring as their inspiration.
