Scarlett Johansson set for sexy role

August 6th, 2010

Scarlett Johansson is to play Vince Vaughn's lover in a new movie.

The 25-year-old actress is reportedly in talks to appear in 'Old St. Louis' as a secretary who is secretly romancing a travelling salesman.

In the comedy drama, Vince's divorced businessman character tries to combine his latest cross-country work trip with an attempt to reconcile with the teenage daughter he rarely sees.

'Kick-Ass' actress Chloe Moretz is rumoured to be in the frame to play the daughter.

However, if Scarlett does sign up for the role, it could put her rumoured appearance in 'Gravity' in doubt as there would be a likely schedule clash, with both slated to begin production in October.

It has now been claimed that 'Gossip Girl' actress Blake Lively may take over the female lead in the space-set thriller, starring opposite Robert Downey Jr. if Scarlett drops out of the project.
