Scarlett Johansson gets to work and bets on a series

Scarlett Johansson wastes no time. The popular American actress will star in and produce a limited-edition series (miniseries) based on the 1992 novel “Just a Cause” by John Katzenbach, Deadline reported.

The project, which involves Warner Bros. TV and the actress’s company, These Pictures, will be seen on Amazon Prime Video, which has already ordered the entire season of the fiction.

It should be noted that this television adaptation will have a big change with respect to the original source, because Katzenbach’s novel has a man as the protagonist, the editorial writer of a Miami newspaper named Matt Cowart. Consequently, a gender change had to be made.


It is worth noting, highlights Deadline, that this story was previously adapted for a 1995 film, with the Scottish Sean Connery as the protagonist. As a curious fact, that film represented one of the first film roles of the star of “Black Widow“, who played the daughter of Connery’s character, who played Paul Armstrong, a Harvard law professor. Scarlett was 10 years old at the time.

In the remake of “Just a Cause,” Scarlett Johansson will play Madison “Madi” Cowart, a Florida newspaper reporter sent to cover the final days of a death row inmate, a process in which she comes to believe him. the prisoner who is innocent.

The 38-year-old American performer is currently working on the Apple TV movie “Project Artemis” by director Greg Berlanti. Channing Tatum also participates in that project. In addition, the two-time Oscar nominee will also be seen in the comedy “Asteroid City” by Wes Anderson, and the British film “My Mother’s Wedding” by Kristin Scott Thomas.
