According to Collider, Scarlett Johansson is linked to the development and main role of Tower of Terror, a new horror movie for Disney. The film takes its name from one of the attractions in its parks. There is no director in charge of the project yet, but more news is expected soon. So far, the scriptwriter of Intensa Mente – 98% Josh Cooley is writing the script.
In case you are unfamiliar with the attraction, it is a walk through the floors of a kind of haunted building that culminates with passengers in a “free fall” inside an elevator. The game has supernatural elements and is inspired by the classic science fiction and fantasy show The Twilight Zone – 50%. So you can get an idea of what line the film is going to follow, which will surely be suitable for the whole family.
This is not the first time that Disney has developed a film based on its attractions. Perhaps the best known case is that of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl – 79%, which launched a whole saga that continues and is preparing a reboot. Next on the way is Jungle Cruise, an adventure film that is expected to be released this year and starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson. There was already a movie of Tower of Terror for television.
Johansson has had a very productive couple of years. The actress received, two years ago, two nominations in the same edition for the Oscars for her work in the films Historia de un Matrimonio – 98% and Jojo Rabbit – 75%. As if that were not enough, he will also return to action with Black Widow, the solo film of the character that he has played for ten years for the Marvel saga and that will finally see its premiere in less than a month.
