Scarlett Reunites With Timberlake Director for Brilliance

She's got the busiest agent in town.

It wouldn’t be a complete week around here without a report on a Scarlett Johansson project. Thankfully, MTV Movies has come along with word on yet another of Johansson’s upcoming films.

The film in question is Brilliance, a heist flick about — you guessed it — jewel thieves. The project was searching for a director when Johansson suggested Samuel Bayer, who she’d recently worked with on the video (sorry, mini-movie) for Justin Timberlake‘s “What Goes Around…Comes Around.” She was apparently impressed with his work, and according to the MTV report, the feeling was mutual. As Bayer told the network:

“Scarlett is one of the sexiest actresses around, and she can just become her characters. Look at what she did during the Corvette scene, which a lot of people won’t catch. She was shooting that on a green screen, and right before we were rolling, she was laughing. We start, and she’s crying. It was just unbelievable. It’s stuff like that which makes you know someone’s a star.”

We always thought it was stuff like that which made you know someone was an actor, or bipolar — but maybe Bayer has a point, because we were laughing when we started writing this report, and now we’re sort of tearing up a little. But whatever. The director is certainly very excited about the movie:

“So many things came together in all the right ways. It really was a case of ‘what goes around, comes around.’ In a good way.”

Ha! Get it? He said ‘what goes around, comes around,’ because it…oh, never mind. If you want to see all nine minutes of the Timberlake video, which apparently includes shots of Johansson “driving really fast and making out in a pool,” follow the link below.
