Scarlett Johansson will star in the new science fiction movie Under the Skin, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Jonathan Glazer is the writer and director of the project.

The film centers on an alien (Johansson) who comes to Earth disguised as the perfect woman in order to snare her human prey, but although she is deathly efficient, she also becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth.

Johansson won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for her performance in A View From the Bridge. Among her many film credits are Iron Man 2, Match Point, Lost in Translation, and Girl With a Pearl Earring. Among her other upcoming projects is the previously announced Avengers movie. In addition, she will host, as previously reported, the November 13 episode of Saturday Night Live.
