Favreau commented on Johansson’s casting, saying, “Scarlett is a tremendous talent and I’m honored to be collaborating with her again. I’m so fortunate to be working with such a fine ensemble.”
Jon Favreau is directing from his own original screenplay, with production scheduled to begin July 8 in Los Angeles.
