First, there was Josh Brolin and George Clooney. Then, it was Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton, and Ralph Fiennes. Now, the Coen Brothers may be adding yet another huge name to Hail, Caesar!: Scarlett Johansson.
The Wrap is reporting that the actress is in talks to join the Coen Bros.’ latest adventure, a 1950s Hollywood period piece. Clooney will star as Eddie Mannix, a man whose sole job is to keep the scandals of the rich and famous out of the newspapers. Ah, how much simpler life was without TMZ.
It’s unclear as of yet what Johansson’s role would be, but we’re guessing she will probably be playing some sort of attractive female who gets Clooney into a tight spot.
UPDATE: It appears Jonah Hill is now getting in on the action, and is confirmed to be appearing as well. While his role is unclear, it seems a mortal lock that he'll have at least one bromantic scene with Tatum.
