Johansson Hits Back at 'Island' Producers

by | August 18, 2005 | Comments

Scarlett Johansson is furious that producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have blamed her and Ewan McGregor for the box-office failure of their big-budget film "The Island."

The screen beauty was staggered by their recent attack, which included a comment on their website claiming "even lesser television actresses would have more connection to that audience" than Johansson did in The Island.

Johannson rages, "This is a clear-cut example of the producers passing the buck and not taking responsibility for their part in making calculated mistakes throughout the film’s marketing. (I am) proud of (my) performance and the film."
